Singularity

Scientists have many different, invented words to explain what they do not know and cannot find out. One of them is singularity.

Singularity: a point at which space and time are infinitely distorted by gravitational forces and which is held to be the final state of matter falling into a black hole.

As I understand this word it also describes the situation before the “big bang”.

If there is such a thing as a black hole and if there was a “big bang”, singularity is the atheist’s word for God.
