: From what I understand the universe as we know it was : created when a Black hole of Universal mass exploded.
: My first question is what caused this black hole to : explode?
: 1) when a black hole reaches a critical mass it : explodes. : 2) an external force acted on it.
: Since I can't see how a black hole can have a critical : mass. I'm assuming some external force caused the Big : Bang. Does this sound right?
: The only external force that I can imagine that would : affect a black hole is another black hole. So lets : say that just before the beginning of the Universe we : have 2 Black holes of mass X and Y, where X + Y equals : the total mass of the universe. Now imagine these 2 : black holes getting caught in each others gravity well, : in such a way that they smash into each other. Could : such a collision cause what we call the Big Bang?
: End of the universe:
: If the above can be discount, don't bother reading : further.
: If the Big bang was caused by the collision of 2 black : holes, you can argue that where there are 2 there are : probably more. So if there are other universal black : holes, could it be possible that instead of our universe : ending in the Big Crunch or the Big Fissile, parts of : it gets swallowed by other Universal black holes which : eventually collide and make other universes?
: Please let me know if I missing something.
Knowing what I know about the Bible (don't stop now), the earth is only a few seconds old in cosmostligical time. What do you think about an asteroid or comet striking te earth and changing time as we know it today.
Time as we know it has no consistent value with the acuality of how the earth came into bein and how we are here at all.
Now consider what we already know about objects in proximity with the earth (some large and some small) and the possibility of something striking the earth once again. What would be the the outcome of this tragedy?
Would we be sitting here a hundred thousand years in the future wondering where we came from and what the stars held for us?
we came from and what was in the stars?
