I saw a lecture by a creationist that was using the existence of dark matter as a proof that god is real. Dark matter, you see, is the weight of human sins that permeate the heavens as described in Hebrews 12.

There's a bit of woo about nuclear bombs destroying the soul because something or other. I don't know where it came from, but Google finds a few discussions if you want to venture down that rabbit hole. Warren Ellis did a funny, if very very 90s, riff on it.

HA! That was pretty funny. I probably will check into that.

This is all steering sorta in the direction I had hoped. I was going to ask about dark matter actually. And super-position/uncertainty principles.

    And super-position/uncertainty principles.

That sort of stuff is above my pay grade.
