Nothing is infinite in our universe.

The idea of infinity leads to metaphysical absurdities.

For example:
To give just one example, suppose you had an infinite number of coins, numbered 1, 2, 3, . . . , and so on, to infinity, and I took away all the odd numbered coins. How many coins would you have left? Well, you’d still have all the even numbered coins, or an infinity of coins. So infinity minus infinity is infinity. But now suppose instead that I took away all the coins numbered greater than three. Now how many coins would you have left? Well, three! So infinity minus infinity is three!

This is not my only argument.

Hope you'll accept.

I apologize about this debate. My internet has been missing up the past week. Could we maybe restart this debate sometime?
