    No.

    They like each other a lot.

    What Happens When Supermassive Black Holes Merge?


    A
    lthough they can fling each other around and we may have one hurling towards us right now.

    If, sorry steve, there were such things as black holes, and they did exist, not just to account for a mismeasure of the amount of matter in the universe, they most likely would attract. Since black holes suck up matter like crazy, I assume they contain alot of it. Since they are attracted to matter, they would probable be attracted to each other. But there is another problem here. The attraction cannot have a closed loop field unless it maybe contained antimatter since it is a black hole.

    I was skeptical by the original question, but your post is nonsense.

    Um... what?

    Breakdown: Why do you assert that black holes are a mismeasure of the amount of matter in the universe?

    What do you mean by "attraction cannot have a closed loop field"?

    What is this about anti-matter?

    Black holes attract to each other. They are subject to Newtonian physics like any other objects. What happens below the event horizon is just 'theory'.

    To be fair, Newtonian physics are just theory, which only accurately represent reality when relativistic effects are negligible. Our knowledge of what happens below the event horizon is math and hypothesis. It can't be empirically tested.

    (Still, we've essentially said the same thing, I am just being nitpicky <_<)

    Newton had some very good theories that have always been useful. I was wondering about black holes, say they do exist, they would be attracted to each other in a big way, far bigger than has been observed. I was wondering if maybe antimatter, also if it exists, would be coming into play with an equal repulsion field, if antimatter repels, to keep the whole thing in balance. If so it it could be so large that our whole solar system and galaxy might be located within that field already.

    That's at least twice you have shown your ignorance.
    They do exist.

    No more than any other equivalent mass.

    What do you mean "if"?

    Please stop posting bollocks.

    Steve or hawk as he is also sometimes called is liked by everyone even before he became crippled. Whenever he said anything, people listened because he usually knew a great deal about what he was talking about. It's too bad that he didn't become accepted until he was crippled. His theories about black holes are just that theories and have not been proven yet. Am I wrong?

    Also bollocks.

    You're wrong.
    A number of Hawking's proposals have been shown to be correct: that's one reason why he's taken seriously.
    And you're also diverting.

    Ok Dwyd,I have been waiting. When are you going to give one of your all knowing ideas on the subject. are you just going to stay floating around in your in your all knowingness. Speaking of diverting, you appear to do it all the time. In your all knowing way of course.

    The answer was given in post #2.

    Wrong.
    You post bullshit, I point out that it's bullshit.
    You change subject. I point out that's also bullshit.

    All theories are "not proven yet"; that is the way science works.. Only mathematical theorems can be proved.

    Am I wrong?
    Usually, as far as I can tell. (When you are not incomprehensible.)

    There is no reason why antimatter would act any differently in the face of gravity.

    No experiment says antimatter repels.

    But why do you ask?
    Would you ever accept the answer "Yes"?

    I have a natural antipathy for Dwyddyr, but yeah, he's pretty much spot on. Can you maybe, elucidate what you have stated? You made a lot of claims that totally set off BS alarms, but unless you have something incredibly compelling to say to back it all up, why should we believe you?

    Definitely HBH. Sorry, maybe I should have quoted... but, well, yeah.

    But in all non-seriousness what evidence do you have to back up your claim that Dwyddyr is a duck, huh? Huh?!

    I'll ask, Dwyddyr.

    Later though... maybe.
