A finite part prohibits the whole from being infinite. Each succession will be the next finite quantity, and so on, and always. Physical existence prohibits infinity.<quoted text>
We are going to have to agree to disagree. I just don't see how space and time cannot be infinite, but God can. Nor do I see how a cyclical universe needed a first cycle or else no cycle would exist. I see no problem with having a universe with infinite space and yet still be able to measure parts of it, i.e. one can take finite parts from something infinite. I think you just don't like the idea of infinity except in the special case of a creator..
Nothing that physically exists can be infinite. It is impossible.
The creator, as theorized, would be "atemporal", not infinite.
"The infinite is nowhere to be found in reality. It neither exists in nature nor provides a legitimate basis for rational thought. The role that remains for the infinite is solely that of an idea."
-David Hilbert, one of the greatest mathematicians in history
"Actual infinity does not exist. What we call infinite is only the endless possibility of creating new objects no matter how many exist already"
-French mathematician Henri Poincare
"Infinity is merely a figure of speech which helps us talk about limits"
-German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss
