Fascinating...but...here's a question, what if there are Black holes AND "Apparent black holes" existing in the same space time matrix simultaneously, Would they cancel each other out?

#1 You have just demonstrated to the whole of the snotr populous that you haven't got a clue what you are talking about :) Well done :(|) :(|) From this point onwards any comment you make about anything should be taken with a pinch of black hole salt >:)

#3 You have just demonstrated to the whole of the snotr populous that you haven't got a clue what irony is. Well done. From this point onwards any comment you make about anything should be taken with a pinch of lack of understanding humour salt.

anyway... isn't theoretical stuff and faith the same thing?

#6 isn't theoretical stuff and faith the same thing?

No it is not. Theoretical stuff are based on truth. Where faith is based on our brain making up stuff.

#6 earns himself a +1 for "apparent popcorn" :) but it seems to be apparent and doesn't register on Snotr.

#6 #7 I would say the main difference is that while faith could be expressed as 'reliance' (doesn't require proof), theoretical concept/theory could be expressed as 'curiosity' (seeks the proof). Also, it is important to distinguish between religion and faith, so I hope #6 meant faith and not religion.

As for the actual topic of this video, I read the paper by Hawking some time ago and was rather... I guess "disappointed" is the right word. It was interesting to read, however, as most of this topic is theoretical, the lack of any calculations makes it appear more of a summary of thoughts rather than a theory or a proof.

Black holes are the product of flawed mathematics. I suggest to you to search and watch/read about the Electrical Universe theories.
