no no... energy and matter are interchangeable. each particle of matter is really just a state of energy.
but the rest of your post i agree with...
and to paradox...
i dont see any infants here, but you havent shown any reason as to why i should consider you to have any insight on the subject. if you think we are wrong then i say enlighten us.

Energy and matter are two sides of the same coin - E=mc2
Conversion from m to E occurs for example in atomic explosions, conversion from E to m occurs in particle accelerators.
It say's they see things acting as they shouldn't, they move so fast they should fly apart. That is nothing but faith.
What I'm looking for is any scientific article about energy itself that is not a property/function of matter doing work upon other matter. This is what a lot of people on ATS keep claiming and discussing, that energy is some separate 'thing' from matter or that matter is composed or 'made up of' nothing but 'energy'. That's the problem I'm having, I understand Einsteins equation just fine, but I'm left wondering if most others on ATS do.

There is no such thing as "energy itself, that is not a property/function of matter".
In physics, the concept of force is used to describe how a massive body is affected by acceleration or mechanical stress.
Essentially, matter exerting itself against other matter, right?

This whole "dark matter" thing is bunk.
All it is, is "Shaded matter", it is in the shade.
Shadow, silhouette, whatever you want to call it.
It is normal matter simply not reflecting light back to us in this particular direction. From another vantage point I am sure you would see light reflect off of it, thus it would be visible in the light.
What are you going to try to convince me that dark matter absorbs ALL light rather than reflecting it? You gotta be kidding me.
The galaxy may exist, but its a normal average one, simply having it's light blocked by dust/rocks/clouds/etc.
Dark Matter is a joke. It's just in the shade.

Yes and no. Yes because matter is always interacting BUT, there is momentum in the atoms!!
we still have no clue what that is but it is there and without the "orbit" shall we say of the atoms we would not get matter or the resluting "engery" from it!
its not about engery being a "something" its a function of matter its self..
esoteric supernatural function of the universe is correct then
if you cant understand that you wont understand anything i post..
