We're told that the universe we see through our telescopes is but 10 percent of the total. 90 percent being "dark matter" that we cannot see or detect. Scientists "know" this because of it's effect on gravity, that force we know all about.
This sounds to me a bit like the ancient "knowledge" that nature was made up of 4 elements: Earth, water, Air, and Fire. And, that the Sun, the Moon, and all the stars revolved around our flat Earth.
Could the confident scientists of today be just as wrong about what is?
Could our world be just ______?
