I had spent some time answering this question, when it was made duplicate by an announcement at the top "this question will no longer be accepting answers".
Would it not be possible to give ten minutes grace for people who are in the process of writing an answer? "in ten minutes this question will not be accepting any answers"
Since my answer was not an answer to the duplicate question (where I would have transferred it, as I have often done), but an expansion on the way singularities are handled in mainstream physics, I also took some time making it into four comments so that the OP could see the depth of the question's answers in physics, not just mathematics.
My four comments were also removed as saying there should be no answer in comments!! Catch 22.
