New research into the nature of the universe may revolutionize our current understanding of gravity and matter. An international team of astronomers have discovered an unexpected link between mysterious ‘dark matter’ and the visible stars and gas contained in galaxies. The researchers found that another unknown force appears to be acting on the theoretical dark matter in the universe.
Current scientific understanding suggests only 4 per cent of the universe consists of known material. Stars and gas within galaxies move so rapidly that scientists theorize that gravity from a hypothetical invisible ring of dark mark is needed to account for the motion. The problem is no one knows what dark matter is or if it even exists. The new research suggests there a force is acting on the all matter in the universe controlling the dark matter with an invisible hand, leaving identical fingerprints on all galaxies no matter their shape size, or age.
Scientists theorize the force, which might be called dark energy, could be responsible for controlling the expansion of the universe itself. This unknown force seems to be omnipresent and a constant energy acting on all matter. Dr. Benoit Famaey explained the findings saying,
“The dark matter seems to ‘know’ how the visible matter is distributed. They seem to conspire with each other such that the gravity of the visible matter at the characteristic radius of the dark halo is always the same. This is extremely surprising since one would rather expect the balance between visible and dark matter to strongly depend on the individual history of each galaxy.”

The Bible seems to have provided the answer these scientists are looking for, before they knew the question.
Colossians 1:16-17 (NASB) “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. (17) He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
