It is what ever you believe it is. That's the magic of religion.

It all makes sense if you read the second Hawkings book about time while fingering your pineal gland.

Black hole meme made it to front page of google, nice teamwork scientists/computer scientists.

A lot of things about space are as fascinating as they are terrifying, but I find the very notion of the black hole in general to be particularly terrifying: who needs H.P. Lovecraft when there are these things in the universe that can make virtually anything just... fade out of existence. :blink:

We don't know what they do, or if they even exist.

Stellar black holes according to scientists will cause spaghettification to a human of getting near it.

While supermassive black holes wont cause spaghettification

That's not entirely correct.
The minimum density required for a supermassive object to collapse into a black hole is much smaller than it is for an object of stellar mass. This will cause the difference in gravity between the two ends of an object approaching a supermassive black hole to be much, much smaller. As a consequence, the object won't get stretched that much, and might even cross the event horizon without any noticeable effect. But as long as it comes closer and closer to the singularity, the difference in gravity between its two ends will increase. The end that is closer to the black hole will experience higher gravity than the opposite end, and when the difference gets large enough... the object will be spaghettified anyway.

*video for science-deniers*

nothing escapes a theoretical black hole except theoretical Hawking radiation. Your theory-religion keeps nullifying itself.





Hawking radiation reduces the mass and energy of black holes and is therefore also known as black hole evaporation. Because of this, black holes that do not gain mass through other means are expected to shrink and ultimately vanish

Unless you are a solipsist, you probably shouldn't make fun of scientific theories for asserting the existence of theoretical entities. The entire physical world is subject to the same doubts and is essentially a theoretical entity. You could be living in a simulation or some other kind of reality that is fundamentally different from how you perceive it. So if we are going to make fun of science for postulating black holes to explain observed phenomena, then we should make fun of ourselves for postulating the existence of an outside physical world at all.

Scientific theories don't claim to be WYSIWYG takes on reality. And like religions, they postulate things that can't be proven. The difference is that scientific theories are supposed to be responsive to reason and evidence, whereas religions are not and are based on dogma. Science does fall short of that standard sometimes (e.g. dogma on global warming) but it's still very different for the most part.

Another example, dogma on black holes.

I will repeat that their ignorance of charge, Maxwells displacement or D field, is the big sham(e) here.

or I just like to make fun of crappy simplistic "educational" videos full of holes, and bad scientific methods (especially those that get used as a narrative by the mainstream media)

metaphysical atheists have no sense of humor

If it can't be proven right or wrong, how can it be false?

Something that can't be proven right or wrong is neither true nor is it false. It's just useless.

since it appears to already have gone through "spaghettification", it gets sucked of

its some kind of anime girl with orange-halo like hair resembling the picture of the blackhole in an abstract way, & she's eating a bowl of stars with a spoon like it was cereal, while reading a tentacle-porn/romance novel
