A). No and no.

1). First of all, according to the best current theory, the sun's mass isn't enough to collapse into a black hole when it's finished being a normal star. But more interesting ... even if it did, that would just mean that its mass would be concentrated in a much smaller volume. Seems to me that the effects of gravitation at 93 million miles from its center ... right where we are now ... wouldn't change. The earth, or what's left of it by that time, and the other planets, or what's left of them, would continue to orbit that central mass, just as we all do now, but in cold darkness.

2). Same idea for other bodies preparing to eat the earth. Black holes don't suddenly become colossal vacuums that go around inhaling everything. A 'hole' is still a mass equivalent to a large star. There's some distance, like a few miles or a few hundred miles or a few thousand miles, within which the escape velocity exceeds the speed of light, so from within which nothing can escape. But at greater distances, the effects are no different from what they were when the hole was still a star.

All in all, I'd rather be in Cleveland.
The physics of the formation of black holes is complex and requires a competent understanding of space-time. it is hardly frivolous as black holes drift near our solar system now and then and plow through like cannonballs through clouds. We are lucky to have survived the last two encounters, which took place several billion years ago and another drew an asteroid to our area 65 million years ago, ending the reign of the dinosaurs. That does not deny Divine Creation. It merely means that atheists are wrong that they claim (without basis) that creation tool place in 4,004 BCE.
Democrats cause war, financial collapse, persecute rational persons, and engineer political animosity among the people. We, THE PEOPLE, will have no more of that abuse.

they may be dead stars but they're not necessarily "inactive" if you what I mean. they're not like space roadkill. that's if it hasn't imploded on itself and created a blackhole...otherwise a dead star wouldn't be a black hole ...but the center is a blackhole not just a dead star
