A dark matter paradigm advances the understanding of matter, light, and forces which in turn solves the mysteries of antimatter, black holes, quasars, and galaxy formation. Several famous personalities write grandiose books about the cosmos. They speculate on colorful variations of 80 year-old unproven theory, which violates many laws of physics and continues to be at odds with new observations. Although the media presents them as experts, there is no real agreement or consensus between these authors, and their self-promoting books provide more entertainment than actual science. Moving beyond the standard model and building from a foundation of proven science and new observations, the role of dark matter becomes apparent. A quantum leap in the understanding of our universe ensues, from the smallest particles to the largest structures.
