There is no "dark blob" at the center of the Milky Way.

With all the negatives against black holes, the TPODs give the impression (at least to an amateur like me) that EU denies the existence of an extremely dense mass at the center of the Milky Way, that so far remains utterly invisible. After all, extremely dense and utterly invisible defines black hole for the average guy like me.
Again, there is obviously something exerting a strong force at the center of the Milky Way. This MAY imply an extremely dense object. Black holes however are not just extremely dense, but are defined by the existence of a singularity which is a mathematical result, not an established physical entity. There should be at least two physics commandments we would be wise to observe:1. Thou shalt not multiply by infinity.
And2. Thou shalt not divide by zero.
Both infinity and zero need to be approached with great care when relating math to the real environment in which we live.
