If there was an infinite amount of matter, then there is an infinite amount of every type of matter, too, right? So there is an infinite amount of light-giving stars out there. Hence, a white night sky.

: : 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.
