your question is the same question as to how the universe could always be. We are at 0, past and present are 1 and -1 that is infinite. We will always be at 0 just as everything else in our universe is at 0 as well.
I have to speculate the induction to new numbers into the date.
The child's mind is weak like that of a untrained all black pit bull.
Where did I state the universe could always be?
I speculate that Before Common Era couldn't start.
This is foolish for you to believe that Before Common Era started!
Each day we wake up its a new beginning, therefore we can represent each new day as 0, or if you want to get exact by human standards today is 07-14-2010. Tomorrow can't be today so a new number must be made which I made it 1, or human standards it will be 07-15-2010. Also, to represent yesterday which can't be today or tomorrow, I used a new number -1, or human standards it was 07-13-2010.
The reason we use 2010 for example is to represent our own timescale for human accomplishments, not the universe. Your 2010656497411648941461564646456456456456456456456456456456456456415153151564648442130230004694845640 is true if you perceive that the first 4 numbers 2010, never changes. But at the same time you are asking a question as to why a date is infinite? Your answer is because the universe is infinite. How did we get to 2010? Well from 0 we added 1 to each year to get to 2010. If you keep adding 1 to each year it will be infinite will it not? What about before 0? Well we had BC, but I look at it as -1 instead. How far back can we go? Going back is infinite just like going forward but we all start at the same place, 0.
If you can't grasp that concept then I don't know what to say. Stay in school maybe?
