Scripture has God saying He'll give up if anyone can tell Him the boundaries of the universe

Hello ATS Spaceheads,
I have a question.
I saw a presentation once (can't locate it now) where they said that if the known universe (with instruments) were shrunk down to the size of a golf ball, that the ACTUAL Universe would be some number of light years across, somewhere from a few to ten.
This is due, allegedly, to the measurement of the near (but not quite) "flatness" of the universe.
Is this true?
Here's an excellent view of the KNOWN universe compliments of instruments like Hubble called the Sloan Digital Survey.
My God someone's got to set that to Beethoven or Mozart!
Thus, the whole of the sky is really bejeweled, the whole thing and nearly forever, but not quite, and it's still growing and expanding and creating and recreating & spawning new stars, new worlds, new life? well of course even if there were less than 1 such Earth analogue of some kind in every galaxy.
But if the KNOWN universe, which is breathtakingly HUGE were only a golf ball in magnitude relative to the distance to our nearest star Alpha Centauri, 4.24 light years away, then that exceeds the human mind's ability to even begin to grasp.
If it's not known, then I would perhaps feel a little more comfortable!
What say you?

Black holes create white holes. So there's a good chance our Big Bang was the result of star collapsing into a black hole in another previously existing space-time dimension. And all the stars of sufficient mass in our Universe capable of collapsing into black holes will create new big-bang Universes within the quantum foam of reality. The net result of this bigger idea of time is eventually ever possible quantum state gets realized until every possible possibility gets realized at least once. Once every possibility is realized God's omnipotent consciousness will be fully complete.
Time is always much bigger than anything we could ever possibly comprehend no matter how much we think about it.
What are white holes?
