How do we know that wondering black holes won’t come close to earth?

    If you mean "wandering" black holes, we don't for sure. If any were very close now we would see perturbations in the motions of planetary objects in the outer solar system.

    We're just getting started at detecting gravitational waves. So eventually we'll be able to detect a wandering gravitational body heading towards us. Even if one is heading towards us, it'll take millions or billions of years to get to us.

    Black holes do not exist, so a wandering mythical black hole will never swallow the Earth.

    This is essentially just silly scientific theory. They have been trying for so long to prove this nonsense, that they are determined at all costs to label any compelling circular, helical or globular interstellar formation, a black hole.

    Time for astrophysicists to restart and go back to the drawing board on that one.

    One might in the future. But not any time soon. Astronomers could detect the black hole by the motion of all the stars that it passes. None have been found that are headed our way, luckily.

    Wondering black holes can get HIV

    It's possible. But, the nearest one is many light years away - and, moving in about the same direction and similar speed as we do around the galactic center - so, for the foreseeable future, we're not in danger of being visited by a black hole.

    A wandering black hole may come close .. some day .. in the very distant future.

    The sentience of black holes has been a topic of debate for decades. There could be a micro black hole right next to you wondering why it's there like we do.

    Wondering black holes should be sought out and communicated with for their knowledge
