If the universe was infinite, then brings up a problem, there must be infinite time to form an infinite amount of things.
Suppose, the universe is infinite, and the time making it, is infinite, which is obviously wrong, then brings up another problem.
If there is an infinite amount of space, that must mean there is a massive ample of time for equilibrium to occur throughout the universe, and by equilibrium, I mean in terms of temperature.
If the universe truly had existed for an infinite amount of time, the entirety of it would be only one temperature, and thats obviously not true, the temperature of one region of space, can be massively different from another region of space, a few light years away.

Anyone who says the universe is infinite is an idiot.

the only people who say that are atheists who want to deny that the universe had a cause

Try harder anon, you're coming off too strong.

i was actually agreeing with you, i don't think the universe is infinite, i think it's finite and had a cause. please read more carefully

the universe may not be infinite, we just can't yet prove weather it is or isnt. however we can prove that its not infinitely populated; if there were an infinite number of stars in the sky, we would be perpetually bathed by infinitely bright light as there would be no "gaps" between stars when looking out to infinity.

If the universe is infinite then everything in the universe is in the center of it.
Because everything is equally far apart from the edges of the universe.
Since it's infinite.

The universe is infinite in the sense that matter is spreading out, but so very finite in the sense of how much matter there is.

"universe" means all time, space, energy, and matter in existence.

so far, time is believed to be infinite (there's no reason not to think so), and space is getting larger at an accelerating rate. matter and energy are both (most likely) finite.

no, time IS finite, and there's a reason to think so. If the temperature drops to absolute zero, every atom stops and so will time. Time is relevant only to an active system.

that definition of time isn't applicable in a chaotic inflationary model
#119 to #116 - beerholder ONLINE (01/19/2013) [-]
true, however i was responding to the phrase "time is believed to be infinite (there's no reason not to think so)" in disregard of whatever theories might suit your liking. The big freeze is a distinct possibility.

good point.
User avatar #118 to #116 - coolcalx (01/19/2013) [-]
at least, I don't think it is.. I could very well be wrong
User avatar #107 to #101 - awesomenessdefined (01/19/2013) [-]
The thing is, it is impossible to determine where space ends. If space is just nothingness, then it's infinite. But matter and energy are definitely finite.
User avatar #111 to #107 - coolcalx (01/19/2013) [-]
space isn't 'nothingness,' but it's also intertwined with time. this complex relation between time and space is what allows for the universe to be infinite

the universe is infinitive but it is no longer expanding. Its actually decreasing instead, which is just as ****** up if you ask me.

google if u dont believe
#102 to #91 - uniquereposts (01/19/2013) [-]
Wrong, its actually speeding up, and will do it till the end of the time, till every little atom gets ripped apart, and there is no more

I disagree wit your statement, the universe is not infinite, infinite is rather a brief term used for substitution, what makes the universe "infinite" is that it keeps on expanding. However it still has limitations which does not make it "infinite."

There are two things that are infinite: The Universe and human stupidity, and I'm not so sure about the universe.

I thought it was infinite BECAUSE it's expanding. Not that it was already infinite. Though of course, I could also be the dick who's arguing the pronunciation of tomato.

im an asshole for saying this, but i really dont know why this is difficult for some people to understand..

It is infinite cause it is expanding unstoppable. It is like saying fat people is scum bag because they are fat and still eat a lot.

I thought the theory was that it was infinitely expanding, but could not be considered infinite?
User avatar #62 - matttboyagain (01/18/2013) [-]
It will keep expanding....until it doesn't.
