A black hole has an event horizon, a barrier from which light or any energy wave form can not escape.

If gravity is transmitted by a form of energy wave,
then the physical attraction of mass in a black hole can not be transmitted to an object beyond the event horizon.
Gravitational attraction to an object would vanish as the object disappeared behind an event horizon.
Black holes would have no detectable gravity and no detectable mass.

This leads to the following two conclusions.

If black holes exist then gravity is not conveyed by an energy wave.
If gravity is conveyed by an energy wave then black holes do not exist.

Which of the two conclusions do you think is true and why?
