Skip to comments.Stephen Hawking stuns physicists by declaring ‘there are no black holes’—says there are GREY ones

Stephen Hawking has shocked physicists by admitting there are no black holes.
In a paper published online, Professor Hawking instead argues there are grey holes.
The absence of event horizons means that there are no black holesin the sense of regimes from which light can't escape to infinity, he says in the paper, called Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting For Black Holes.
He says that the idea of an event horizon, from which light cannot escape, is flawed.
He suggests that instead light rays attempting to rush away from the black holes core will be held as though stuck on a treadmill and that they can slowly shrink by spewing out radiation.

Can photons be trapped in orbit?
Black hole expert Don Page, of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, admits: 'The picture Hawking gives sounds reasonable.'Black hole expert - Lmao!
Look how easy this “Black hole expert” rolls over - LoL!
Laurence Fishburne just flashed before my eyes.

Black, grey, green or purple, Stevie is going to be heading into it some day for eternity.
Now, I am no physicist but this is causing me trouble. If:
-All matter in the universe consists of atoms
-The force of gravity has the same effect on all matter
Then how does a “grey hole” that will consume stars and planets made of atoms also at the same time give light waves made of atoms a pass?
I know there are mulatto ‘holes and they are highly destructive.
“Black hole” is a racist term. Now he will be considered to be a compassionate “Progressive” by the media for his sensitivity in changing the term.
As I understand it, “dark matter” is not made up of atoms and in theory it makes up most of the universe.
Light is made up of photons, not atoms, but still is trapped by black holes.
There are a lot of inconsistencies in the ideas and it’s unlikely they’ll all be resolved in our lifetimes.
I see what you did there!
Of possible interest to the ping list.
He did not want to be called a racist.
