Logically following time backwards, it seems to me that at some point close to the big bang event the universe's contents would have been squashed into an incredibly small volume. My question is: Why did the universe's contents not simply collapse into a black hole at that point in time, leaving one incredibly massive black hole evaporating in expanding spacetime?
