Summary:


The development of the concordance cosmological model (CCM) over the
past 40 years is based on the addition of at least three unknown
("dark") physical phenomena (inflation, cold dark matter, dark energy), in an attempt to make Einstein's field equation account for the distribution of matter on galactic and larger scales. None of these are understood nor experimentaly verified today. While
these may constitute true discoveries of new physics, much as in the
spirit of the past when for example Neptune and the neutrino were
postulated to exist based on not understood observations, these dark
additions also have a parallel in the Ptolomaic model which is based on
a
series of complex additions to circular motions in order to provide a
calculation tool for the Solar System prior to the discovery of
Kepler's
and later Newton's laws. On close scrutiny the latter analogy appears
to be the favourable one because the CCM is not able
to account for the observed distribution of matter on scales of 10Mpc
and less, where a massive ...
