A relativistic modified gravity (MOG) leads to a self-consistent, stable gravity theory that can describe the solar system, galaxy and clusters of galaxies data and cosmology without dark matter. A review is given of fits to galaxy rotation curves, mass profiles of X-ray clusters and weak and strong lensing of galaxy clusters including the bullet cluster E10657-56. MOG can explain the CMB power spectrum and the observed acceleration of the expansion of the universe.
