something had to fill this universe before the big bang..dark \anti matter which is just another name for the matter that filled this universe \ void before our matter burst in and started to fill it..just because we don't have the tools to identify it now don't mean it don't exist...

Dark matter imho is most likely just a mathematical fudge which allows us to keep faifth in our understanding of Newtonian mechanics.
I find it likely that new understandings of gravity's effects - over large distances - will likely replace the need for all this mysterious, but so far ineffable, "Dark Matter"
Dark energy - on the otherhand - is most likely just a natural cumilative effect of normal quantum mechanics - over unimaginably vast spaces.
Dark Energy being a form of "unseen" large scale effect of quantum energetic processes is not nearly as proposterous as the idea that vast amounts of "unseen" Dark Matter populate the majority of the Universe.
I find that highly dubious indeed!
