: is it not possible that a black hole is an infinate mass which is compressed under it's own Gravitiational pull which is generated by this mass?

It is important to remember that the only thing that approaches infinity is a black hole's density (density = mass / volume). This is because the finite mass is distributed over the singularity (which has essentially zero volume). There is no such thing as an infinite mass black hole.
