Oh hey, it's this discussion, again. If you think about it, anyone involved in this argument is insane. Seeing as this comes up quite often, until one side has any means of proving the other wrong, you`re all insane.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

"You don't need a deity. You can have nothing and quantum fluctuations can create a universe."

So... who/what created the quantum fluctuations?

I prefer the original speech, it actually explains what he's saying in context.

To head off the "but dark matter isn't a fact!" replies:

It is possible to calculate the approximate mass of things such as galaxies from their gravity, which can be measured by their movement and from the effect they have on light.

The mass is much higher than can be accounted for by matter we can see.

Mass is a result of matter.

The most likely explanation from the known facts is that there is a lot of matter that we can`t see. Since we can`t see it, it`s called `dark`. It interacts with gravity but not with the other forces.

We don`t know what dark matter is. We do know that it exists - that is a fact repeatedly confirmed by experiment. So it isn`t a matter of belief. It`s a matter of fact.
