In deterministic fashion, time will always be finite when you have a point of reference to measure it, the "infinite" status is broken immediately.
Time is infinite because it is not a thing that decreases or is consumed. Time itself is unending, it is the capacity for things to happen, not the happenings themselves. An infinite amount of time does not mean a numerically large amount of time, but rather a gap where nothing happens. Imagine the time between the moment you fall asleep and the moment you awake, it is virtually instantaneous because you aren't consciously perceiving anything in between.
>After an infinite amount of time passes, more people will surely be born.
There is no "after". More people will be born after a certain finite
period of time.
>But since an infinite amount of time must pass before they will be born
>, they will never be born, since an infinite amount of time can't be feasibly passed, even though they shall eventually be born after such time passes, which must be able to happen, since it has already happened.
An infinite amount of time has not passed. If the birth happened, then the time up til that point was finite.
>An infinite amount of time must have also passed before the time that we were born,
Immeasurable? Perhaps. Infinite? Not if you believe in astronomy. Scientists have measured the universe to be 14 billion years old. Anything before that is immeasurable, but it's finite, even if 20 other universes existed previously.
>since there can't have been a beginning of time, because there had to have always been something, or at least nothingness for something to appear in, or else nothing would be able to exist.
The "Beginning" of time is a misnomer. My preferred conception of the "beginning" lies with Stephen Hawking's idea of time being spherical
with North and South "poles". There is no edge therefore no beginning, if you keep heading in one direction you'll eventually end up right back where you started.
But either way the beginning is the point when things started happening in observable space.
However I agree that something arising from nothing is an issue. Perhaps everything around us are all shades of nothing?
>Therefore, an infinite amount of time has passed before we were born, which should be impossible, but the people who will never be born will be able to view it from the same perspective (after they are impossibly born) because for them the beginning would be their birth, and there will be more people that can't feasibly be born in their future, but surely will be, and we will be as impossibly far in the past.
This revolves around the same concept. It isn't infinite once you have points of reference. Immeasurably large is still finite.
