No one has a faith in dark matter (perhaps some new age folk do?) instead dark matter and dark energy are theories that are agreeably unproven. The fact that you are saying that scientists have some kind of faith in dark matter shows that you have really no understanding of scientific method.

    The great advantage of the scientific method is that it is unprejudiced: one does not have to believe a given researcher, one can redo the experiment and determine whether his/her results are true or false. The conclusions will hold irrespective of the state of mind, or the religious persuasion, or the state of consciousness of the investigator and/or the subject of the investigation. Faith, defined as belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence, does not determine whether a scientific theory is adopted or discarded.

    Either you don't understand the scientific method or your pulling someone's leg. :P

    Scientific theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It's longish but all you really need to know is the diffrence between a scientific hypothesis, a theory and a law.

    If your pulling someone's leg, ya got me as well

    I suggest you take the word "theory" very seriously when applied to gravity.
    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    Nope...we gain knowledge through learning new stuff. In this case observation leads to hypothesis to explain an unknown, hypothesis leads to theory....eventually. However, we continue observation to develop said hypothesis and sometimes find cool stuff like, oh I dont know.....the Higgs Boson.

    I think it's called science.

    When and if Allah does turn off beta decay, you can view him as a wizard, if you like.

    Turning of beta decay will be devastating.

    Well since there are no such things as wizards then the universe is safe.

    Well, I suppose we need to promote the Law of Karma as a scientific hypothesis, then.

    Yeah, but there's no scientific law of karma. Karma itself does not exist.

    God= MC^2 is false. God particle is a misnomer. Wonder and amazement does not make the existence of a deity more or less probable, nor does the discovery of a novel particle or scientific fact, any more than the discovery of the neutrino or the Americas did.
