: In addition to this, if an infinite amount of substance : DID exist, our night sky would be as bright as day. : Allow e to explain: if an infinite amount of matter : existed, then for each star out there, each light : emitting thing,would shine down acertain amount of : light, even if it were infinitely small. SO if an : infinite amoount of stars shined down upon us with : a cumulative infinite amount of light, we would have : a pure white night sky, no?

But light from objects is caused only due to enough gravity to create the reaction of the matter. Without that gravity those objects, the matter in space, would not emit light. The existence of 'dark matter' in space supports this. As does the existence of varieties of stars.

I have nothing to say on your conclusions, just on this line of reasoning to back up your arguement.
