: : : I am trying to understand something. At the beginning : : : right before the big bang, why did that point of : : : singularity not cause a blackhole? The matter was dense : : : enough, to warp the space around it. Where can I find : : : more theories on this?

: : Well, I can try to answer this one...

: : That singularity was infact a black hole. one that, : : if the theory is true, contained all the matter and : : light we see in our current universe. I think the : : experts on this will also say that it contained all : : the time and space as well, all in that one singularity

: : Joe might be able to explain this better than me.

: It just seems that the theories explaining the formation : of a black hole would lead one to believe that the : circumstances present right before the big bang would : never allowed the big bang to start and if fact : would have created a black hole itself.

The theory breaks down at something around 10-43 seconds or so after the "explosion". What physical laws were in effect before that fraction of a second are not known at this time. If indeed at the beginning the universe was packed into a conventional black hole, then there would be no means for it to explode into the kind of universe we see today.
