# Black hole information paradox and entropy of the Universe

What is the argument against the hypothesis that information loss in a black hole as initially thought can be the reason for omnipresent increase in entropy of the Universe?

In other words, if we take that information is lost in the black hole (I do not want to argue this assumption), can that increase exactly account for an apparent increase of entropy in the Universe?

This line of thought would imply that entropy of the universe is zero, something similar to idea that the energy of the Universe is zero.
