The ideolgy of no Singularies; reeks of Einstien's intial conception of black holes. But the bottom line is that a singularity is just a special mathematical point and nothing more, the globe itself is a good anoalogy. The points where the lattiude and longitude lines meet (e.g. the North and South Poles) are mathematically speaking singularities themselves. However the very principle of relativity is violated with the concept of a singularity in space-time, not to mention all of the quantum vaccum fluxations taking place; i.e. at the planck scales surely cannot allow them. Therefore it is my humble oppion that a singularity, is something we don't quite understand and has yet to recive it's true understanding within the human mind. -Perhaps a new physical interpretation is needed; when it comes to what we call singularities.
