An interesting theory is that on the other side of a black hole is a white hole, which spews out matter into a whole new space. This speculation is possible because we really don't know what happens to matter after it is ripped apart by the black hole. We are also not quite sure why the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, but think that it might have something to do with the dark matter that makes up a large portion of the matter in our universe. Also the nature of the Big Bang itself is unknown--where did all of the energy and matter come from? A possible answer is from a white hole, from another universe. My theory is that the dark matter that exists in our universe originates from the white hole, and that there exists some intrinsic repulsion between dark matter that mirrors the attraction between matter, and coupled with the constant influx of dark matter from the white hole, could lead to an exponential expansion of the universe.

Is there any merit to this idea?

First, it's dark energy that makes spreading of the universe faster, not dark matter. Dark matter works like the opposite. And the white hole theories are pretty much all BS. Since black holes also work as white holes (see: Hawking's Radiation). And we have a perfectly fine answer as to how black holes are created, so no need for white holes.

Asides from that, we may actually be living in a black hole. I've read about it and it's a possibility or something.

The Fool: If we are in a black holeits not relavent. Because it wouldnt be a black hole. It would have not demarcated criteria. ha. figure that one out! on your own.
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

The question is more properly "Are we inside a FORMER black hole?" The singularity of the black hole is what would have exploded.

Of course, there are a myriad of problems with Big Bang Theory; it begins breaking down the further we go back.

The theory of why the expansion of the universe is accelerating is that new energy is being created at the edges and gravitational pull is causing the acceleration. It's vacuum energy, not dark matter. That's the theory anyway.

Even though we can't see inside a black hole, we know the total mass from the gravitational force. So whatever is going on in there has a well-defined mass and size. There is a theory that black holes may provide portals into other dimensions. I don't understand what is claimed.

No evidence whatsoever for Whiteholes.

This speculation is possible because we really don't know what happens to matter after it is ripped apart by the black hole.
But we do know: it adds to the mass of the Blackhole. Also, key word SPECULATION.

We are also not quite sure why the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, but think that it might have something to do with the dark matter that makes up a large portion of the matter in our universe.
No. Dark energy (or vacuum energy) is what seems to drive the expansion. Dark matter is something different.

Also the nature of the Big Bang itself is unknown--where did all of the energy and matter come from?
Who says it needs to come from anywhere? Thermodynamics tells us that these things are "neither created nor destroyed but only transformed."

A possible answer is from a white hole, from another universe.
This is an "old" possible answer that is based on pure speculation. Anyways, all you are doing is "going back" 1 more level and you still need to answer where did that white hole from another universe come from? And so on; you're still stuck with an infinite regression.

My theory is that the dark matter that exists in our universe originates from the white hole, and that there exists some intrinsic repulsion between dark matter that mirrors the attraction between matter, and coupled with the constant influx of dark matter from the white hole, could lead to an exponential expansion of the universe.
Only problem is that there is NO empirical evidence for what you propose and there's actually some evidence against!

Is there any merit to this idea?
Yeah: at least you're thinking about physics!
