    Alberts equations tell us that time slows down as gravity increases.
    Then how do we observe matter falling into a black hole?
    Should we not see material stationary at the event horizon
    reference our time frame? And, if Alberts equations are correct,
    how old are sm black holes?

    We don't see matter falling into a black hole (i.e. crossing the event horizon). From our viewpoint, it would stop movng there. Not that we can actually see the event horizon of a black hole.

    Thanx Wayne, then why propose an event horizon in the first place?
    SM Black holes are an enigma to science, so why does science do its
    best to provide answers without understanding the question.
    Thanx anyway for your response Wayne.
