So how does dark matter affect the fact that you can swipe left? Well, the general consensus among palaeontologists is that around 66 million years ago, a giant 14-km-long meteor slammed into our planet wiping out the dinosaurs and the vast majority of everything else too. However, there were survivors. A small shrew-like primate that eventually evolved to become you, me and your boss (maybe).
While there is no hard evidence for dark matter, most astrophysicists believe it to exist. The math seems to work and it explains a lot of weird anomalies in physics and astronomy- I'm sure the big breakthrough is on its way. Until then, we are left with the fact that regardless of dark matter, you and I exist because something from outer space allowed us to exist. I just hope another one doesn't show up to screw it all up- I really need to see the new X-Files...
