Opps. It seems I was partially wrong: they are still arguing on whether or not black holes eventually give back the information as well as the mass.  Sorry about the misinfo.

A glimmer of hope for the theory persists! Yeah, I seem to recall Hawking making a bet with another physicist about what's really happening with the info going down black holes...suggesting that the debate is still on.

Another theory about black holes and a possible multiverse (I remember reading about this in layman's terms years ago) suggested that all the matter pouring down a black hole may actually form a new pocket universe; that in fact, our own universe may be the pocket universe of another universe, spawned by a black hole in that universe; and that effectively black holes may be the mechanism by which universes "procreate", and one could build a whole genealogical tree of universes...except that there's no way of communicating from one to the next and thus no way to prove the existence of these other parent-child universes and therefore no way to prove the theory.
