: Dark matter does exist we can't see it because somehow it does not reflect light it only absorbs it. We can see its pressence though its gravitational effect.

So, then, are you saying that dark matter is synonymous with what we commonly refer to as a black hole? Forgive any ignorance on my part, but I have never, in my studies, run accross that term before.
