Which came first? The star, or the black hole?
We know black holes are the result of the collapsing of a star, but we also know the majority of the galaxies in the known universe have a super massive black hole at its center, and the even mostly void new galaxies without much to feed it contain black holes at their center. The question is, was the star first there to collapse into a black hole, or was it the "occurance" of a black hole with the gasses and such to help birth new galaxies?
