    Default God and Dark Matter

    So, I read a book on dark matter (Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs) and realized at the end I didn't understand any more than I had at the beginning. I felt like I was back in Catechism class at Our Lady Queen of Peace grammar school, trying to get a straight answer.

    Don’t take this too seriously. Just having a little fun.

    God & Dark Matter

    Our galaxy is spinning like a pinwheel. What keeps all those stars from flying off into intergalactic space?
    Priest: God
    Scientist: Dark matter

    Where is God?
    Priest: Everywhere.

    Where is dark matter?
    Scientist: Everywhere.

    Can we see God?
    Priest: No, but we know He’s there.

    Can we see dark matter?
    Scientist: No, but we know it’s there.

    Can we touch God?
    Priest: No.

    Can we touch dark matter?
    Scientist: No.

    Is God here now?
    Priest: God is in us and all around us.

    Is dark matter here now?
    Scientist: Dark matter is in us and all around us.

    So God hasn’t normal flesh.
    Priest: Correct.

    So dark matter isn’t normal matter.
    Scientist: Correct.

    Where did God come from?
    Priest: It’s a mystery.

    Where did dark matter come from?
    Scientist: It’s a mystery.

    How do we know God exists?
    Priest: Without him the galaxies would fly apart.

    How do we know dark matter exists?
    Scientist: Without it the galaxies would fly apart.

    Interesting comparison. What book was it? I love physics, and dark matter is a pretty intriguing topic of research to me.
