It seems that not too long ago cosmologists had it all sorted out. A few billion years back the universe started from a point, there was a big ol' KABOOM and the universe spread out from that point, continuing to expand to what we see today.
It was simple. It seemed to fit the observations. Case closed. Right?
Lately though we've got all this crap about mysterious dark matter and dark forces--dark energy and whatnot. And now, to top it off we've got "dark flow" seemingly attributable to something outside the universe!
These days cosmologists are sounding less like scientists and more like kids who've watched too many Star Wars episodes. What the hell's gone wrong with the universe and what's it going to take to fix it?
