      @Anne Harsta what do you call the universe? the universe that affects you is our solar system, then the other is our world. SO HERE IS YOU BIG QUESTION. WHERE DOES THE ENERGY THAT AFFECTS YOU COME FROM? Oh wait let me answer that from our Sun. Oh wait scientist say our sun is just a bunch of rocks,,... But if you are not stupid you will laugh at them because our Sun and every other star in the milky way gets its energy from a power plant Scientist cant realize. So I ask ,are you smart enough to understand there is a source of energy in the center of our galaxy that is the power called Sagittarius A Star that feeds everything and is the source of life.> Are you smart enough to understand that Sagittarius Star is our Creator/God

      I had a thought about what i think will happen in a googol years. First is the moment all stars die and there is no more energy in the universe. Black holes gradually eat up all the stars and planets and occasionally bump into each other to form a bigger black hole. Eventually there will be nothing but a single black hole. When it dies it will spuw out all the energy and mass in the universe. The big bang.

    Black holes are just converters. The old belief that everything beyond the event horizon gets dickes in and cannot escape is only half the truth...because particlewaves in loser degrees of the scale dimension escape with the same amount of energy as the energy of objects that get sucked in. So these vacuums in fact are blowers at the same time.

    so, I get that you get stretched out until you're basically a line of atoms, like a string of spaghetti, but then once those atoms are actually sucked into the black hole, the black hole is such a tight and small space that those atoms then become basically smashed together? right? you get spaghettified and then pancaked?f (for like a butter term)

    I strongly believe we are now inside an ancient black hole. Big bang I assumed, maybe u am writing start inside a black hole. One day all the black holes in the universe will merge into a super duper black holes zillions times the mass of our sun and it will swallow the entire universe. Hence from inside this black hole will emerge another big bang and new universe

JESUS CHRIST PAID THE PENALTY FOR YOUR SINS 2,000 YEARS AGO ON THE CROSS AND IF YOU REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR THEN YOU WILL BE SAVED FROM HELL. HE LOVES YOU AND DOES NOT WANT YOU TO GO. REPENT AND TURN TO JESUS TODAY.

    An important part of this video is highly confusing. Nothing can escape a black hole because nothing can go faster than light. So how come photons are going in? They are attracted faster than the speed of light ? I know the answer has to do with gravity vs speed but I don't get it
