Actually it was Hawking that first said BH's could even even violate the some of the laws, so not only break down they fall apart.<quoted text>
I'm comfortable with my statement as-is, and I'm sure Steven Hawkings would agree with me.
As well would Stephen Hawking, the physicist.
But he took it back because other physicists arguing with him.
While some still contend Hawking was right about it to start with.
But all of us here with physics backgrounds know that physics laws
especially concerning GR break down in a singularity.
