Invisible Pink Unicorns May Live Inside the Sun



"It's not that most of the matter and energy in the universe is dark, but that most cosmologists are totally in the dark about the real nature of the universe." -- Wallace Thornhill, physicist, October 2006

"In summation, Dark Matter and Dark Energy add up to the blank cheques that postpone the falsification of bankrupt theories." -- Ralph Sansbury, physicist, May 2009

"Dark matter is an excuse for the failure of gravitational theories." -- Stephen Smith, author, June 17th 2010

Science Daily: Dark Matter May Be Lurking at Heart of the Sun.

ScienceDaily (Aug. 4, 2010) — A scientist at Royal Holloway, University of London believes dark matter is lurking at the centre of the sun and cooling down its core temperature.

The latest study, led by Dr Stephen West from the Department of Physics at Royal Holloway, looks at the possible effects of dark matter on the properties of the sun, if these elusive particles become trapped at its centre.

"Dark matter makes up more than 80 per cent of the total mass of the universe. We know that dark matter exists but to date it has never been produced in a laboratory or directly observed in any experiment, as a result we have very little information about what it actually is. It is important that we examine all possible ways of probing the nature of dark matter and the sun could provide us with an unexpected laboratory in which to do this," says Dr West.

That IS absurd, wow.

I think it is good that dark matter is turning up everywhere!

Dark matter ate my homework ....

When it is trotted out to explain every experimental anomaly, maybe everyone will be able to see how absurd dark magic is and they may go back to observation and science!

It is absurd to think that dark matter is in the center of a star, why not regular matter?

Dark matter is the new Phlogiston.

The theory holds that all flammable materials contain phlogiston, a substance without color, odor, taste, or mass that is liberated in burning.
