Tell me AnarchoCapitalist, what kind of salary does an average physicist in the field of high energy physics or low energy physics such as rare event
What you will find is that the government(s) wastes more money because they cannot get big corporations to pay their tax bill, than the entire science
budget (academic science). Money is not a valid criticism, there are many things that are just like pouring money down the drain, blue skies research
is not one of them.
It is when the hypothesis being chased are demonstrably wrong.

You say Scientists are surprised... well isn't this the whole point? You seem to claim that scientists are a bunch of know alls not willing to
question their evidence, experiments or favourite pet theory and yet even by your own admission this is exactly what scientists are doing day by day.
there are a few bad examples of people with huge egos, but they represent a small fraction
LIGO, the CDMS and the Xenon what exactly do you know and understand about these experiments. Firstly One of them is the odd one out here, which i
hope you understand, it didn't fail, it is still on going. And the other two use two different technologies and have two different search regions and
different target mass. The actual testing of theories and evidence is exactly what these Two experiments are doing, since they are testing regions of
claimed discovery, as well as trying to get down to sensitivities that can begin to probe regions predicted by theories of various kinds and also
bounds set by other physics in the LHC.
Iv left the names out for now as you should (since you claim to be an authority) already know what i am talking about, and these experiments didn't
fail one bit. Their physics runs are just starting to touch regions of prediction from the LHC.
Of course I know, and they have failed - spectacular fails.
To quote myself:
The LIGO has never detected a gravitational wave. LIGO (on the fourth science run [S4]) and GEO600 together did not detect any gravitational waves. To
date, LIGO’s fifth and sixth science runs, which had all three interferometers running continuously in triple-coincidence for an entire year, has
not yielded any gravitational wave candidates.
To quote the Scientific American on the other two:
"The world’s most sensitive search for dark matter announced today that it has found—nothing. The first results from the Large Underground Xenon
(LUX) detector are null, scientists say, indicating that the invisible matter thought to make up a large chunk of the universe is even more elusive
than many experts thought.
The new LUX results also cast doubt on previous claims of possible dark matter detection. The DAMA (for DArk MAtter) project in Italy claimed to have
seen signs of WIMPs more than a decade ago, and more recently the CDMS (Cryogenic Dark Matter Search) and the CoGeNT (Coherent Germanium Neutrino
Technology) experiment, both in Minnesota, saw handfuls of events that might be attributable to dark matter. “I’m afraid I can’t see their
claims really surviving this,” Gaitskell says."
I pose the same question to you as I posed to Arbitrageur.
If I said an invisible man in the sky holds galaxies together, how is that any different than claiming dark matter does the same thing?
Explain the difference to me, because I'm not seeing it. I'm entirely serious. I want you to provide a reason why Dark Matter is not actually an
invisible man in the sky. I want you to explain why God is not responsible for these observations, yet dark matter is. I want the logic that
differentiates them. Because from where I'm sitting, there is no logical difference between the claims.
The term "Dark Matter" could be swapped for "Invisible Man" or "Jesus" or "Buddha" or "Allah" or "Fairy God Mother" and absolutely nothing would
change. It is an entirely hypothetical, inferred entity. The hunt for dark matter is like the hunt for the Easter Bunny.
You got NOTHING.
I already showed you a paper that can FULLY ACCOUNT for galaxy formation AND it can account for their rotational velocities - WITHOUT ANY DARK MATTER.
DARK MATTER DOES NOT EXIST.
I love how you are able to completely ignore the papers I present. I find that ability amazing. If I was you, I'd be tearing into the papers trying
to find something wrong with them. Yet you seem completely oblivious to their existence.
Should I post them again for you?
Did you not see them?
Let's go through them one at a time!
