As was mentioned, "time" is really a construct of man, as a measurement (and relies on there being witness to such movement), so it can easily be
argued as infinite
Likewise, technically, the Universe is finite, at least so far as it has currently expanded, at least to current thinking.
Myself, I believe that the Universe, like all things in it, goes through cycles of birth, growth, death, rebirth... You have a Big Bang, expansion,
then collapse in upon itself to that infinitismal point, the another Big Bang, expansion, etc. For all we know, we could be in the one-billionth
cycle of this...
Likewise, there probably wasn't an actual "starting" cycle, it just simply "is"... Its these "cycles" that I think are
infinite, so in essence, if using time as a measurement...then time would be infinite as well (in so far as our discussion here). However, the
universe is only as large as it's edge of expansion, whereupon, as in any other spherical construct in the universe, you don't go off an edge, but
just continue moving along the outside edge of it...
