I remember having to find dark matter to defeat Omega Weapon.
I think in order to be able to successfully argue against dark matter one should have a clear understanding of all observed evidence in favor of it. This I don’t have yet I still feel the theory is unnecessary.

since when is saying "dark matter most likely doesn't exist" not arguing against it?
Dark matter is a theory that has yet to be proven and has not been “observed” so no need to try to explain it away. However there is a possible alternate explanation for the flat galactic rotation curve.
I don't see how anything else you said explains away dark matter observations.
...bullet cluster observations seem to prove the existence of dark matter
Most galaxies have rotation curves that show solid body rotation in the very center, following by a slowly rising or constant velocity rotation in the outer parts. Very few galaxies show any evidence for Keplerian decline. A flat rotation curve implies that the mass continues to increase linearly with radius.
Peratt’s computer simulations were based on concepts by Alfvén and Fälthammar and work done by Winston H. Bostick. Hannes Alfven theorized plasma can be scaled to 27 orders of magnitude making laboratory experiments and, in some cases, computer modeling very useful. Peratt has proven 14 orders of magnitude.
In the early 1980s Anthony L. Peratt, a student of Alfvén's, used supercomputer facilities at Maxwell Laboratories and later at Los Alamos National Laboratory to simulate Alfvén and Fälthammar's concept of galaxies being formed by primordial clouds of plasma spinning in a magnetic filament
Galaxy formation in the Plasma Universe is modeled as two adjacent interacting Birkeland filaments. The simulation produces a flat rotation curve, but no hypothetical dark matter is needed, as required by the conventional model of galaxy formation.
Experiments with the PK-3 Plus (Plasmakristall-3 Plus) dusty/complex plasmas laboratory on the International Space Station, has shown dusty plasmas in a weightless environment that seem to show "vortices in the plasma resembling a galaxy"

Sounds good. but not true.
"This mighty gravitational pull from dark matter particles are
the only way dark matter can interact with the universe,"
if it has a higher gravitational pull than normal mater.
then all dark mater would pull normal mater to it.
so dark and normal mater would be together!
No clounds of just dark mater. just a mix.
they may have found some thing.
but Not dark mater. if it exists at all.
Where did you get the idea from that dark matter is not mixing with matter?
There are billions of dark matter particles passing through you each second (according to the dark matter model).
Another question might be what discoveries would you expect from CERN to provide experimental proof of your theory?
Have you considered submitting them to the ATS sister site: disnfo.com? It could mean a few dollars from advertising revenue for you. And it would add some high quality science research to their catalogue.

a reply to: swanne
Dark matter is assumed to have no charge. Do your proposed 1/3, 2/3 charge particles exist, if so why haven't we observed them yet?
Or are they not observable as such, are components of dark matter particles? Which mechanism binds them together?
Why 4 preons per "dark matter particle" instead of 8?
When you calculate the energy of dark matter, shouldn't it be the energy of the composite particles?

But unlike any conventional particles, which are usually made of quarks and/or antiquarks not of the same flavour (otherwise they would undergo annihilation)
originally posted by: ErosA433
mesons can totally exist as same flavour quarks, and be quark anti-quark pairs that bond via gluon exchange and do not annihilate, but decay instead.
the bonding or neutralization as you state would still require a force carrier or field interaction...
Marko Rodin says dark matter is the number 9, whatever that means
