But no, the numbers don't appear to add up if you assume dark matter is baryonic.

Hm well, the theoretic amount of baryonic dark matter depends on the Big Bang nucleosynthesis theory. Another part of the puzzle that might be just wrong.

The possible margin of error there is extremely great. We don't really know what the hell happened at the beginning of the universe, so if that assumption is wrong, any explanation derived from it is wrong as well.
