: does anybody have an opinion on what occurred to cause the singularity that turned into the big bang ? ...I think maybe all matter being sucked into black holes travel thru a worm hole to a distant part of the universe and burst out into the universe thru a "white hole" which is the big bang or "creation" of that part of the universe

The Big Bang singularity (BBS) probably has some important differences from a typical black hole (BHS) singularity. First, the BHS is not represented by a rupture in the virtual quantum background, whereas the BBS is; the two are inherently different. Also, the BHS just keeps packing on the weight and energy, with the mass/energy lump presumably never losing any weight (at least on a short-term scale), while the BBS started with no mass or energy measurable in spacetime (in fact, there was no spacetime yet), but as the fabric ruptured, the mass/energy poured out, along with the four dimensions that we are familiar with plus a bunch more. As the "stuff" flowed out, and the mass/energy/dimensions condensed out, the little ball of stuff alos inflated, overcoming the newly-achieved "forces" of gravity and expanding into the universe we see today. One could call this a "white hole" I suppose, but it wouldn't be the perfect symmetrical mirror to an other-universe black hole that quantum theory says it ought to be. A white hole of this type may not even be possible, because the mass woudl already be there, creating a gravitational spacetime warp before the outflow coudl ever get going; the white hole woudl end as a black hole before it ever got started.
