Resolving the strong cosmic censorship conjecture is one of the biggest open problems in classical general relativity. The conjecture essentially says that general relativity is deterministic. In this talk I will discuss how this relates to the nature of singularities inside black holes, by means of “toy model” spacetimes that are solutions to the spherically symmetric Einstein-Maxwell-scalar field equations. In particular, I will motivate why one should ignore the extension of the Kerr solution beyond the Cauchy horizons. If time permits, I will also discuss the weak cosmic censorship conjecture briefly.
