I just read Carlo Rovelli's new book about loop quantum gravity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Its a great book and i really enjoyed it. However there is a claim in that seems a little odd to me.

In LQC singularities are resolved and replaced by bounces. So the the state of infinity density, pressure, curvature etc is removed. Rovelli then claims LQC removes infinities . But I see a problem with this claim.

If singularities are replaced by bounces then the rationale for the finite age of the universe is removed and this open the door for the universe to infinitely old and so Rovellis claim seems suspect to me even assuming LQC is correct.
