I'm guessing there has been an attempt to address this, and I've looked through some threads but I remain unsatisfied.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm not getting it. If relativity predicts that the universe was a singularity (I get that the universe wasn't necessarily a tiny point) with infinite density; then how could that singularity ever not be a singularity? If it was infinitely dense then how could it ever not be infinitely dense?

If you increase the distance between all infinitely close points within the singularity by some set value (say an increase in distance between all points of 10^10000000000%), wont they still be infinitely close together?

Or is this just what is meant by very little being known about the singularity?

Was there some sort of a jump between the infinite density to a finite though very large density where the equations start to work? I'm imagining something of an asymptote and a jump to another part of the graph where it is no longer infinite. I don't know how valid this analogy would be though.

A link that would address these specific questions would satisfy me. Thanks.

Edit- Ok, I now see that it is possible there was no singularity. Though answers to my questions might still be helpful.
