    We'll see. Overthrowing a paradigm in physics takes more than just a new idea; the new idea must be mathematically defensible and derivable from first principles. I don't believe any MOND theory fits these requirements at present.

    See post #21.
    MOND=MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (essentially the same as non-Newtonian gravity, i.e., a gravitational force which does not fall off as 1/r^2).
