With Higgs you can rule stuff out, because you predict its mass and spin. I remember learning about radioactive decay wayy back in the day, which can produce positrons as well. I suppose the energies of the positron match predicted values and that's a plus. But unlike the Higgs, where we isolated a particle that said here it is, right now we have graffiti that says "dark matter was here". We can't see dark matter, that's for sure, but my instincts tell me that one piece of indirect evidence isn't enough, as we haven't ruled out other possible sources. I'll abstain from celebrating until there's some excluding evidence. More testing!
