“Concerning a RamzPaul video:

This is a false portrayal of the dark matter vs modified gravity theory controversy. No scientist is saying that the universe is wrong, as that would be equivalent to saying the the truth is false. Scientists don’t know for certain why the stars in the spiral arms of galaxies orbit the center of their galaxy faster than the standard theory of gravity would predict. They are trying to find out what the reason is, and they are reserving final judgment on that reason until enough evidence has become available.

That’s how science works. Having to accept uncertainty, learning to live without “absolute” certainty, is a strength that is often misconstrued as a weakness.”
