George Chapline thinks that the collapse of the massive stars, which was long believed to generate black holes, actually leads to the formation of stars that contain dark energy. "It's a near certainty that black holes don't exist," he claims.

Thought some might find this interesting.

Dark energy? Isn't that the same as anti matter? Maybe that would explain the attraction between the two matters(black hole). Sounds like we are talking about the same thing.

hmm, interesting idea. it would make thing feel better than just saying that "whatever falls into the event horizon is effectively no longer in our universe"-which is very unsettling.

Hey, that article mixes black hole and white hole together! (well, maybe not, but that's the impression I get) Ah, well, this is why I'm never deep into scientific stuffs... I can't understand it well.... So, what is this dark matter he's suggesting? Something like graviton or what?

Hum,
The dark matter would be normal primordial matter that formed black holes shortly after the big bang. This extra matter leftover from the matter anti matter phase would be evident in the background photon density count.
We don’t see this.

It's a near certainty that this theory, as it stands, is wrong.
The theory proposes that if a particles energy is less than the gravitational energy (of a black hole), then the particle becomes dark energy.
The  black hole will bounce out any more in falling matter converting it to anti matter ….
Thus all the galaxies we see would not exist because their matter should have been annihilated.
