Abstract

Based on the observation of the flat rotation of some galaxies, and on the acceptance of Inflation Theory that requires the mass of the Universe to be many times greater than that of all of the visible galaxies, many astronomers and cosmologists have accepted that the universe is filled with something called dark matter that is responsible for the flat rotation of those galaxies. However, there is considerable astronomical evidence that denies the presence of that dark matter and supports an alternate cause of flat rotation.
