"They're beginning to wonder if there's a greater reality."

The opening line of narration from a documentary called Is Everything We Know About the Universe Wrong? tonight on the Science Channel. It talks about another phenomenon just discovered called "Dark Flow" that seems to be driving galaxies in a direction different from that expected by current theories. A story yesterday asked, "Is gravity an illusion?"

Dark matter, dark energy, gravity as an illusion, now dark flow. The standard model is no longer satisfactory. But I don't expect any of them to start talking about God seriously any time soon. The way "smart" people discuss God these days is as some unembodied force or influence, not a person.
