Well, as a layman can you please do the maths re the orbits of the stars around the mostly invisible point at the galactic centre, and estimate the mass of said object. From that mass, calculate the Schwarzschild radius. If you think it is just a regular star, then work out what its diameter should be. Then tell us why it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in every single wavelength including visible.
Sorry, the layman is in no way qualified to understand the science involved, which is why you get wooists like Daniel and JW commenting on it here.
