the dark matter postulate arose because there is not enough observable mass to hold galaxies and galactic clusters together. my objection is the premise dark matter does not interact with ordinary matter or radiation. apparently it is ok to exempt dark matter from the normal laws of physics. where is the entropy? even black holes obey the laws of thermodynamics and emit black body [hawking] radiation. it is hard to argue that dark matter is better science than the cosmological constant [i.e., dark energy] that einstein got slapped around for proposing.
