Derek Marshall discusses the case for Dark Matter in the universe as he reviews Dr. Danny Faulkner’s article in the Answers Research Journal. Within the biblical creation movement, there is much resistance to the possibility of dark matter. One reason is that the motions of galaxies within clusters have been used as evidence of recent origin. But Danny makes the case for the existence of dark matter and discusses three different theories for how it operates: MOND, MACHOS and WIMPS. MOND is Modified Newtonian Dynamics, suggesting that our understanding of classical Newtonian gravity is incomplete. MACHOS are Massive Compact Halo Objects, such as black holes, white dwarfs, brown dwarfs and planets. WIMPS stands for Weakly Interacting Massive Particles. All are dependent upon interpretations of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, and the data doesn’t quite fit any of these explanations, so we are left with additional mysteries to solve.
