Because if the universe was mostly anti matter we would just call it matter and wonder the exact same thing.

This.  If it were the opposite, we'd refer to antimatter as "matter" and matter as "antimatter."

If this universe was all anti-matter, then we'd simply be calling it just "matter", and we'd be calling what we currently know as mater by the name "anti-matter".

So who's to say it isn't already?

/If you look at the word "matter" too much, it starts to look odd.
//matter
///matter matter matter

What if the universe is actually made of antimatter, and the stuff they make in those giant loops is real matter. And what's it matter to you, it's not like you're any more real than antimatter, man.

It's the same deal with socks. Find where those go, and bam, there's your antimatter.

Antimatter was removed in a balance patch because the devs got tired of all the explosions. But, being lazy, they left the code for it in, and that's why we can still make small amounts in particle accelerators.
