Yet more MOND

Hey, I see that my favourite physicist blogger Sabine H has a post up about the new paper which I've been posting about - the one that seems to support the unpopular MOND theory for gravity.

Now, Sabine can be hard to follow when she gets into details, but if you read the post (and the lengthy comments, which get into a bit of an almost philosophical argy bargy about when you give up on a science theory), you get an idea as to why MOND is viewed suspiciously by many.

have you sought Graeme Bird's opinion on this? He always has interesting thoughts on astronomy and the state of physics

Ha. Funnily enough, I'm pretty sure Mordehai Milgrom, who first came up with MOND, is Jewish, so Bird would have a problem with his theory...
