So you’re saying that any measurable quantity that is increasing and will continue to increase forever is not an infinity because we can measure it?<quoted text>

Right. Infinity cannot be reached. That's why it is not a realizable value - A PHYSICAL INFINITY WOULD MEAN INFINITY IS REACHED. It is a blatant contradiction.

Stoeger points out the contradiction, and he is correct. Whether Stoeger is a theologian is of exactly no relevance.

Even George Cantor, the most famous author of transfinite math, said it has no application in physical reality.

The ONLY legitimate application of "infinity" is in theoretical mathematics.

Aura Mythra, Polymath, etc. do not know the difference in transfinite math theory and physical reality.

Physicists are becoming more and more prone to using the term in cosmology, which is erroneous, and the critical reader should take notice of the fallacy.

B: Correct. It’s not an infinity.

H: Because we can measure it?

B: Correct.

H: But then it gets bigger.

B: Correct. And we can measure that, too.

H: So it’s not an infinity , despite that it continues to increase, forever because-

B:-because we can measure it. Yes.

H: Ok, so let’s take an example – the size of the universe, expanding forever

B: Measured, not infinite.

H: Oh, it got bigger.

B: Measured.

H: Bigger
