You all mean dark energy...dark matter could be a number of things, maybe neutrinos (now that we know they aren't massless). Anyhow...
Scientists come up with things all the time to coincide with observation and experiments, such as virtual particles. I would rather them have
something than nothing, personally. I think String Theory is ridiculous, but I'm glad people are working on it, because in the long run it'll help.
