Can there be life inside a black hole is it possible that we are living inside a massive black hole right now? This is because i see no reason why we cant be inside a super massive black hole the only thing is that we cannot escape it? I HAVE ALSO HEARD THAT THERE CAN BE WHITE HOLES OF WHICH MATTER OF BLACK HOLE CAN BE ESCAPED?

Atoms don't exist inside a black hole. Even a neutron star has enough gravity to squish all the quarks into neutrons. A black hole has even more gravity. We would not see all the normal atoms and molecules and empty space we see around us if we were inside a black hole.

  • $\begingroup$ @rob I'm assuming one at least as massive as a neutron star. The question has us purportedly living inside it after all. $\endgroup$ – user10250 Mar 1 '16 at 14:49

    $\begingroup$ My understanding is atoms don't necessarily fall apart right after falling through the event horizon... though of course something dramatic will probably happen shortly after this point, so any "life" that got that far would be for much longer... $\endgroup$ – Andy Mar 1 '16 at 15:03
