Infinity is a concept, a theory. It is not "achieved" or "reached and surpassed" simply because it doesn't exist as a number. It just means "no
end". So, here's my logical argument for why time doesn't exist, and therefore there is no creator God. First let's look at what our perception of
time at the moment is, and then I'll show you why it's not real. Bare with me, this should be enlightening! Please read this without
bias/pre-conceptions/belief interfering, be objective
What we know of time: Past/Present/Future. Yet we know the future doesn't exist YET, not until it comes into the present. The past also doesn't
exist, it is only a memory. If you wipe out the memory, the past ceases to exist entirely. So the only thing that TRULY exists SHOULD be the present!
Well, things actually jump from the nonexistant future, into the nonexistant past, and NEVER touch the present. You can zoom in as much as you want
into this "present" but even if you zoom in for infinity, you'll always see the future jumping into the past, there is no moment called "present"
that exists. What we think is "the present" is only the IMMEDIATE past, the part that JUST NOW skipped from future into the past. Ok so that means
nothing exists, well it doesn't if you think of linear time as we do.
Also, because you can't have something out of NOTHING, there was ALWAYS something. That means where we are now is supposedly in the middle of
infinity of time, that goes infinitely into the past and into the future. There is no end to everything, as there was no beginning. There's only ONE
problem with that. If that is true, then God can NEVER create anything even if he does exist. Why? Because he'd first have to wait for infinity of
TIME before he could create something. Remember, we have infinity of time behind us in our past. But you CANNOT surpass infinity and THEN do
something. Infinity is theoretical, it is NEVER reached. It just means NEVER ENDS. That means, since we are STILL part of that same infinity, God
would STILL BE WAITING to create ANYTHING because we still haven't surpassed infinity, we're only in the middle somewhere. God would be waiting for
exactly infinity of time, before creating ANYTHING. That means he'd never create anything. Bam! God strikes out! Ask me for any clarifications if
This also means that time isn't real, because before anyone created anything they'd have to wait infinity of time to do so. You can't skip ahead,
because time is linear. You can only go forward/backward. You can't SKIP sections. I'm talking about all-powerful beings also. If you CAN skip
sections, that means tiem never existed in the first place and it's an illusion imposed on humans. Ok this is long enough. Let me know what you
edit: Even if you can skip sections of time, you still can't reach infinity. You can't skip infinity. It's not a numerical amount. You can wait
only FINITE amount of time.
You may argue that because God isn't human, he is not bound by our limitations. What I would say is, if God can SKIP infinity, that means it was
NEVER infinity, but was in fact, FINITE! But we know for FACT that everything DOES exist for infinity, and God in religion should be infinity, no?
Because you cannot have something out of nothing, therefore something always was! Hmm I think I'm repeating myself here
