Heretics Deny The Dark Matter of Faith - 2

On weekends this blog tends to focus on tensions between theories in the scientific community.

Usually, but not always, those posts are under the title Weekend Rebel Science Excursion.

For example, in addition to today's title, notice that on this date two years ago we elaborated upon a bit of a rebellion taking place within the vast universe of cosmology.

To show that sometimes there is a semblance of the notion of "faith" in the scientific community, when that community drifts from the strictures of the discipline, we provided a post that pointed out a discourse on a subject within the elite circle, the tight group of cosmological scholarship who tell us what we know.

After first being posted here on Dredd Blog, that post was moved to the Ecocosmology Blog where it points out the controversy:
In the post "Rebel Science: The Dark Matter of Faith" the issue of faith was discussed in the context of the "dark matter" debate.

Evidently the rebellion is now growing, and the dark matter of faith may be losing out to the more tangible universe ...

Rebel science sometimes becomes main stream science. Perhaps our little discussion about faith helped?

The controversy is still raging: WIMP Wars.
(Heretics Deny The Dark Matter of Faith). This past week has seen a lot of posts on Dredd Blog System blogs concerning some revolutionary science, even including some juicy science friction vs. science fiction.

Here is a list of some of those posts for your weekend perusal and reading:
