I demonstrate that dark matter consisting of any type or types of stable weakly interacting elementary particle is incompatible with the minimal predictions of inflation, based on present observation of galaxy clustering, and assuming galaxies are good tracers of mass in the universe. If we wish to resolve this problem by particle physics alone, we seem to be driven to the possibility that the initial dark matter was unstable.
