Heretics Deny The Dark Matter of Faith - 3

Regular readers know that Dredd Blog once had a series going titled "Heretics Deny The Dark Matter of Faith",  which was moved over to the Ecocosmology Blog.

"Outstanding, and the are mild."
Then, because propaganda was involved in promoting dark matter, another post "Heretics Deny The Dark Matter of Faith - 2", dealt with some of the discord within the ranks of scientists.

Today, that series is continued because it fits in with the recent posts on Dredd Blog this very week that focus on exposing the origins of our institutionalized propaganda.

Once again some cosmic propaganda, in the form of the book The 4% Universe concerning this dark subject matter, is struggling to get out of its cocoon.

The dark matter theory has been published in tons of textbooks, and in reams of scientific papers.

That book attempts to hawk to mere mortals, who do not understand such starry eyed things, that what we see, feel, hear, taste, and measure in experiments (the scientific method) applies so far to only "4%" of the total universe.

The post today will tie all that in with a statement Noam Chomsky made about the subject matter of institutionalization of propaganda:
And one of the striking features of the modern period is the institutionalization of that process, so that we now have huge industries deceiving the public — and they're very conscious about it, the public relations industry. Interestingly, this developed in the freest countries — in Britain and the US — roughly around time of WWI, when it was recognized that enough freedom had been won that people could no longer be controlled by force. So modes of deception and manipulation had to be developed in order to keep them under control.
(Noam Chomsky, emphasis added). Let's remember that the subject is not only "dark matter", but is also the Dredd Blog scientifically rebellious binding of that subject with "faith," because this dark matter is more "scientific faith" than it is provable science.

The big deal in cosmology at the moment is "dark matter", so let's cut to the chase, and let one of the foremost experts explain why this dark matter subject is so hot to trot:
‘We are on the verge of finding out what dark matter is’, Professor Carlos Frenk told the British Science Festival in Bradford. Frenk, director of Durham University’s Institute for Computational Cosmology, predicts that within the next few months, ‘Either dark matter will be discovered, or our model of the universe is not quite right.’
(Subsequent Paper: Dark Matter). The professor said we will soon be "finding out what dark matter is", "dark matter will be discovered", "or our model of the universe is not quite right"?

What the hell, we don't know what 96% of the universe is, nor have we discovered it yet, but he hope to discover it soon?

The 96% of "things that have not been discovered" are so much more "everywhere" than all that 4% we have discovered, and do know about?

But you can read all about the undiscovered unknown in tons of textbooks and reams of scientific papers?

Well, like Jesus said:  "I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel", or like the scientist said: "most of what we 'know' is only belief."

"In the largest survey of its kind to date, astronomers scouring the space around the Solar System for signs of dark matter — the hypothetical material believed to account for more than 80% of the mass in the Universe — have come up empty-handed." (Nature, 4-19-12; cf. Cornell Univ. Library).
