But astrophysics combines a lot of processes at many energy and density scales, and it is hard to exclude that some signal was not caused by particles of the standard model alone.

Seems to me if they turned off the sun's core for a year they could settle the question.

Or built a new detector under a different mass of rock.

There's no such thing as dark matter. In a few years they'll all realize MOND is the answer.

Try working at a neutrino/dark matter observatory.  Physicists are weird and incomprehensible even by the standards of other scientists.
