No. Some ideas are so obviously wrong and/ or impossible, that they are not worth considering. Generally, these loony ideas are proposed by non-specialists with little to no knowledge of the subject. Were they to present these ideas in an appropriate scientific arena, they would be torn to shreds, once everyone had stopped laughing. I give you Electric Universe woo as a prime example.
Some ideas are fringe, but have scientific merit, and don't violate laws of physics, or contradict observations. MoND is one such collection of hypotheses. However, continued discoveries are reducing the likelihood that that particular hypothesis will ever become established.
As for gravity, what is your problem with it? Newton gets us most places we need to go. Einstein's GR and SR allows us to do other things, such as putting a GPS in your car. Can't see the problem with it.
