Otherwise if you have any doubts as to what Einstein's attitude on the issue was, consult his 1939 paper on the subject where he analysed Schwarzschild's suggestions and so on.


How is quoting one of Einstein's mistakes going to support your claim?
Or do you think Einstein was infallible?

What are those mistakes in Einstein's paper that you allege here, Panda?


Einstein didn't have a complete understanding of what a black hole is.

The gist of the paper is...


...based on an incomplete understanding of what a black hole is.

Your assumption that there has been no advances in knowledge since 1939 is preposterous - and can only be because it contradicts your beliefs.

The only progress made since then has been that of piling up erroneous concepts higher and higher still.


And with that single sentence you show just how delusional you are.

If ~70 years of scientific/technological advancement is not enough to convince you - then you are beyond help.

I don't see why all the technological progress should not be the same or even greater in total absence of all the untestable in principle concepts like singularities, black holes, big bunks, crunches and rips.


An argument from self-knowing is not a valid argument.
70 years of scientific advancement has passed you by.

As I said: "you are beyond help".
