It's true that up to now this rule holds true but why it should continue to that.Once upon a time people thought that space and time were absolute,there was no universal speed limit and we could know anything about everything.What happened with all this believes in PHYSICS.Now they are considered all wrong.This assumption on the other side is consistent with GR and has a quite good degree of simplisity and you know that one of the RULES in science is "the simpler the better".When curvature of spacetime becomes infinite all the laws of physics break down so we have no rules at all.And if you don't have any idea how to prevent infinity its a viable concept because it is consistent with GR.A fundamental rule of physics-why?"Infinities can't exist" is just an assumption.A scientist is a scientist because he takes into account only the evidence he is not stuck to an assumption despite everything refusing even to take into account something that he don't BELIEVES despite the evidence.
