How is matter created? If matter cannot be created or destroyed then how did so much matter reside in one place, POB or point of beginning, and then be able to explode. If nothing can escape a black star then how could a black star a billion times the size be able to explode? If all the matter in the universe was in one place the gravity would not have allowed anything to escape. Even if it did explode the matter would not have been able to escape the stars massive gravity.
