Matheology § 293



[...] parallel considerations would force us to conclude, not merely
that a series of discrete, successive events must have a first member,
but also that such a series must have a final member. Anyone who
thinks that an end-less series of events is possible must therefore
reject this popular line of argument against the possibility of an
actual infinite.
[Wes Morriston: Beginningless Past, Endless Future, and the Actual
Infinite]
http://www.academia.edu/647482/Beginningless_Past_Endless_Future_and_the_Actual_Infinite

Endless for ever or endless at the moment are two different things.
The time passed since the big bang is not endless. The time to pass
may be endless. But the passed time will never report "infinity
reached".

Regards, WM
