Is our universe in the interior of a giant black hole?

This is another post from Casey Kazan at 27th Sept ... a paper available at 'Cosmology in Torsion - an Alternative to Cosmic Inflation' by Nikodem Poplawski, who claims that a small change to the theory of gravity might imply our universe has inherited its arrow of time from the black hole in which it was born. Black holes are the cosmic mothers of new universes is a natural progression from a new and simple assumption about the nature of space time. This is a version of general relativity that takes into account the momentum of the spin of particles known as the Einstein-Cartan-Kibble-Sciama theory of gravity. Torsion allowed the universe to expand rapidly - and such expansion is not visible to observers (or telescopes) (see also for a different take on the same story - posted also on In the News). However, for flaws in General Relativity mathematics go to
