I see a huge difference. Zeno looked at a finite length such as a cubit and said that it is infinitely divisible and therefore nobody can travel a cubit, while in fact observation clearly indicates that uncountable animals have traveled a cubit. In my case, I observe the expansion of a flat universe and say that it will always expand and always have a finite size and age. Your comparison of Zeno's paradox and my observation is a false analogy.

I posted major revisions at An Infinite Lapse of Time is Impossible and Unscientific
An Infinite Lapse of Time is Impossible and Unscientific I plan to discontinue replies at this thread and pick up on that thread. Thank you for all of your contributions to this thread.

Semantics. Time is merely the measurement (calibration) of change. No change, no time. The issue isn't whether time is infinite, but whether change is infinite.
The "arrow of time" is a misleading borrowing of a spatial term. Does change have an arrow? If you consider trillions of quantum particles all doing their own thing a "direction"  I guess it might. www.thisistime.co.uk
