Moments after the big bang the tiny almost infinitely small singularity "was the largest thing that existed?"
Quote from: Alan Mc Moments after the big bang the tiny almost infinitely small singularity "was the largest thing that existed?"Three questions spring to mind;1. How do you define "singularity"?2. If there was a "singularity", when did it stop being one, and how?3. How could anyone be sure it was "the largest thing that existed"?
1) An infinite absolute
In the real universe, no black holes contain singularities. In general, singularities are the non-physical mathematical result of a flawed physical theory. When scientists talk about black hole singularities, they are talking about the errors that appear in our current theories and not about objects that actually exist. When scientists and non-scientists talk about singularities as if they really exist, they are simply displaying their ignorance.
2) Ask Alan Guth (Read inflation)
3) Because it was the only thing
