It is becoming much more accepted to refer to a black hole as more of a "black star"
Why? Because we know that gravity exists, and some type of anti-force to gravity MIGHT exist. It is believed that a dark star could be sustained
within the event horizon, but we can't see past the event horizon to know for sure.
What we do know is that black holes grow larger, but why would a negative space grow larger by adding more stuff? It doesn't quite make sense to say
you get more of a negative thing by adding more positive stuff.
Thus, a black hole bomb is not very likely because a black hole is possibly more of a "black star." Thus, a black hole bomb would cause a supernova
of unknown proportions, assuming there is a complete gravitational reversal (or at least a significant gravitational reversal).
We don't know enough about gravity to go much further in this discussion. Within the next couple years we should have a much better grasp of
"what" gravity really is (upwards of maybe 15 years). Thus, you and I get to enjoy the waiting game.
