I’m not really after a debate, which is why I am posting this here in GQ. I’m after a factual answer.
One argument that I often see for the existence of God rests on an idea that states it’s impossible that an infinite amount of time has passed up until now based on the following proof:
If said I will give you a dollar after an infinite amount of times passes, when would I give you the dollar? Never. Hence, it’s impossible that an infinite amount of time has passed up until right now, or else, the events currently taking place would never have been reached.
I have seen variations of this “argument” presented around the place, I am just wondering if there is a common refutation to it?
Or do atheists accept that the universe/space/time/matter had a beginning, a finite amount of time ago?
