Hi Mark,Alex,Galileo would be the first to agree with your post Alex,thing is not all questioners or doubters are religious.Read recently an article on black holes in Astronomy mag,by prof Neil F Commins.To keep it short,I have difficulty with his statements that the laws of physics,as we know them,break down at the event horizon,then goes on to state that the distance from the centre of 10 solar mass black hole to its event horizon is ten miles.Stop the bus,if our laws of physics no longer apply within the black hole,does it have to have a centre?Does distance
have a value as we know it?Perhaps spacetime is folded to degrees beyond our comprehension,and the inside of the black hole is vast,denying the measurements our laws of physics dictate.
In fellowship without contest.
