The stupid it hurts!

Ok, now clearly that person doesn't understand anything about physics. If you put all the mass of the universe in one place you will get something much smaller then a bowling ball.. you'll get something with no dimension called a point. Why? because that much mass you'd instantly collapse into a black hole like object.

Let us not forget that according to our theory of how the universe came into being, all the mass AND all the energy (which thanks to Einstein theory of relativity we know are the same thing) was present in a dimensionless point (i know tautologie here but it illustrate the point).
