Further to my previous paper "Is Science Lost" of July 14th 2021, in this journal, this essay continues with the problematic issue of Black Holes, which have become such a significant part of the mythology of current cosmology. The presence of a Black Hole is inferred by its interaction with other matter and it is the contention that orbiting stars might be an indication of a Black Hole's location and mass, although none have yet been identified. Given that, far away, from a Black Hole's gravitational influence, its external gravitational field is identical to that of any other body of the same mass, this when viewed from Earth, must seriously impede the separation of any Black Hole from all the other material in the Cosmos. So, do Black Holes actually exist in nature or are they merely pathological solutions to Einstein's equations? Is spacetime merely a replacement for an unknown force in space, waiting to be replaced by yet another claim? Is cosmological physics lost? Maybe.
