Re: Considering This Topic
So your intent is to give us pause in our assessment of un-evidenced myths?
And you think the evidence for dark matter supports that intent?

Religious people should not try to science. You don’t understand it. You are so bad at it.

Dark matter is not impervious to detection. Vera Rubin having detected it is why we know it is there. Just like microbes were unknown until van Leeuwenhoek discovered them.

None of this has anything to do with excuses for your god.

Unlike microbes and dark matter there is nothing to evidence your god. If that should change then science will assess that evidence and embark upon yet another great quest for knowledge.

Until then your god is no more worthy of consideration than any other un-evidenced conjecture, like the tooth fairy.

There are physical characteristics of this reality that are impervious to detection.

And you know this how? Tell us about these physical characteristics that are impervious to detection?

Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

If you say something can't be in two places at once, you're wrong. Quantum mechanics has proven the superposition principle to be true

Quantum Mechanics doesn't say something can be in two places at once. It predicts probabilities to detect a particle in various locations, but it doesn't say it is actually in all those locations at once.

If you lose your phone you might come up with probabilities it's in various rooms in your house, but that doesn't mean it is "in all those rooms at once" just because you assign probabilities to all the rooms.

Ummm, errr.... Well they defy detection hence they can not be described.
