## Proof that the Black Hole is Fallacious (Without Mathematics)

**Authors:** Stephen J. Crothers

The proponents of the black hole make much fanfare of the quantity r that appears in
the so-called "Schwarzschild solution". They treat this issue with complicated
mathematics and thereby confuse those not versed in the relevant mathematics. They
routinely claim that this r is the radius, one way or another. However, this is false
because it is not even a distance in "Schwarzschild" spacetime since it is easily
proven that it strictly plays the role of the inverse square root of the Gaussian
curvature of the spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section of
"Schwarzschild" spacetime and so does not itself denote any distance whatsoever in
"Schwarzschild" spacetime. Now one does not even need to understand the abstruse
mathematics surrounding this issue to see that the black hole is invalid, making this
complicated mathematical matter irrelevant, as I now show.
