Hello everyone, glad to be here. I'm Tom, 22 from Manchester UK. I don't consider myself intelligent, I failed miserably at GCSE Maths but I tend to think a lot about time and space, and I'm interested in the subject and keen to learn more. I'd like to hear some peoples opinions on the topic of time and the infinite monkey theorem. Here is my question(s). Recently me and my friend were talking about if we think time is infinite. In all honesty I don't have a clue, but for some reason I feel naturally inclined to say infinite. So, is there any sort of consensus in the scientific community? Or is it still widely debated? More importantly, my friend brought up the infinite monkey theorem. I had never heard of it before, and this really got me thinking. If time really is infinite, would it be possible over an inconceivable amount of time for something similar to the infinite monkey theorem to happen on a much bigger scale? For example, is it theoretically possible that everything that has ever happened so far, Earth, our existence, and all events could happen again in exactly the same sequence? If time really is infinite, of course... I can't get my head around the notion of eternity and an infinite space/time. I'm also a guy struggling to find my way between Science and Faith, and I have lately been swaying to Creationism, but that's a different matter entirely. Would appreciate any feedback, I'd like to know your thoughts on this! Cheers!
