CANADA - Dark Matter Never Existed?

Arno Froese

Dark matter is supposed to be vital to the universe. A study by uOttawa’s Prof. Rajendra Gupta claims that it isn’t real and never existed, shattering the standard model of cosmology.

Dark matter, the mysterious substance long thought to be one of the most important building blocks in the universe, may actually be completely unnecessary and, in fact, cannot exist at all, according to a new study. 

The results of this study challenge our understanding of the universe, casting doubt on long-held scientific knowledge of its fabric.

First, it’s important to understand just what dark matter actually is—or rather, what we thought it was, assuming this study is correct and it doesn’t exist at all.

Dark matter is supposed to be an invisible substance, emitting no light, that makes up over 85% of matter in the observable universe. 

It is further supposed to be vital to the universe’s continued evolution, as stipulated by the standard model of cosmology.

But if it is invisible, how did scientists know there is so much dark matter, and how important it is supposed to be to the universe?

But this study, written entirely by Prof. Rajendra Gupta, changes everything by boldly suggesting another alternative: There is no dark matter, and there can’t be any dark matter.

“There are several papers that question the existence of dark matter, but mine is the first one, to my knowledge, that eliminates its cosmological existence while being consistent with key cosmological observations that we have had time to confirm,” he said in a statement.

If dark matter is supposed to be so important, and there is so much evidence of its existence, then how could Gupta seemingly disprove it?

The answer lies in a model combining two theories about the cosmos, covarying coupling constants, and tired light.

According to this model, it would be caused by the constant weakening of the coupling as the universe expands, the weakening force allowing it to expand faster. 

The study isn’t perfect. After all, scientists have long disregarded tired light theory as being on the fringes of science. However, the research is still solid.

At the very least, it does highlight a glaring point: The standard model of cosmology is flawed, and we need a new one., 17 March 2024

Arno's Commentary

We take note of the word “science.” It is usually understood to be a state of knowledge established by systematizing facts, principles, and methods. It was in 1933 when Swiss astrophysicist Fritz Zwicky obtained evidence of unseen mass he called “dunkle Materie” (dark matter). The discovery was hailed and accepted as true science. Not so, says Indian-born Canadian professor Rajendra Gupta. Who is right and who is wrong? That will be the continued debate between the world’s top astrophysicists, as one so-called scientific discovery is replaced by a new one—plainly revealing that the previous “scientific fact” was not true science.

What are believers to make of it? Heed the advice Paul gives to Timothy: “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called” (1 Timothy 6:20). Now, as we enter the era of artificial intelligence, the Bible will be considered less and less scientific. But as we know, its truth will not change. The Old Testament declares, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard” (Psalm 19:1-3). And in the New Testament, we read: “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
