This is probably pretty dumb or has already been proposed but what if large masses move space along with them?
I've had the idea after stirring my coffee, noticing that if you didn't know about the coffee you'd wonder why the cream won't stop rotating.

On the left we see what galaxies should look like according to our understanding of gravity, on the graph, distance to the center and velocity. On the right is what we observe. They should flung apart at this speed.
In my allegory the coffee is space and the galaxy is the cream.
The more I think about it, tho more sense it does make.
Someone please tell me im wrong to get my small troubled mind a little ease or tell me where to pick up my honour and glory.

But if I stir the coffee strong enough all off the cream goes to the outer skirts of the cup? Or is it the center?

Idk, IIRC large masses don't really move spacetime around them, they just "deform" it, thus causing gravity.

I'm at least as dumb as you on the subject tho

If you poke into a piece of cloth and twist it it will follow that and make a spiral pattern. The harder you poke the more friction and the more it will be affected.
And space is a little bit more like jello in that regard.

I'm pretty dumb and might be wrong, but that just seems pretty stupid

I'm absolutely talking out my ass here because I did not and almost certainly won't check out that sciencedaily.com link, but aside from my ignorance on that point, I'm sure I don't need to remind you that adjusting the model to fit the data is exactly how science is supposed to work and that multiple models can support the existing data and yet make predictions that differ, sometimes radically, between the models.

I wanted to say something negative about your post, but my tolerance is gone apparently and I think you are probably right here... though I suspect that whatever the greater topic is, you are likely wrong. Though, the point of science is to always get praised when you find out you are wrong, before someone else finds that out first.

Dark matter is just a numerical placeholder to keep models working for unrelated tasks.

It's kind of like a car traveling doing 30mph and hitting a wall, vs two cars going at each other at 30mph. The two cars' speed both driving towards each other will the impact seem like its 60mph, and thus will seem to be moving faster. On the edges the stars aren't under as much gravity from each other so they're slowly making they're way until they're feeling each others' gravity more and more to increase the velocity.

>I have no idea if this is right, I'm just pretty high. I was a total burnout in science classes, but I wish I wasn't lol

The mass of energy making up the Galaxy had spinning inertia during it's original conception, and it's simply maintaining it's own momentum. It's a single system in that it shares the same mathematical/energetic origin and the evidence of this is obvious by observing it moving as one mass. The picture on the left is a basic misunderstanding of cosmology and physics. It is looking at the stars around the Galaxy as mere debris and studying it as of the center mass of the Galaxy should be effecting this external debris.

I have no fucking clue what I'm talking about, but I highly doubt this is a real debate in the way it has been presented here.
