Q&A: Black Holes

Q:
Many objects which are near to the outer rim of the universe are supposed to be "supermassive black-holes." But in our neighborhood, there are only a few. As it is true, that the farther you look to the "ends" of universe, the farther you go back in time. Does a theory exist which says that the galaxies were born out of these black-holes. Or is there a different explanation for this?

A:
The current theory is that supermassive black holes are formed in the center of a galaxy once the galaxy is formed.
