Our Universe Is Expanding ?

Scientists believe our universe is continuously expanding, non-stop, on going, or simply means 'forever'.

What troubled me all this while, is that if the Scientists believe in 'forever', then, it can be taken as to believe that the universe has been there all the time and it is NOT expanding, because the point is that the Universe can be so huge that we can never never put in numerical terms the size of it, and even imagining it. In another words, why the Scientists rather believe the Universe is expanding, and not that it is unimaginable huge but not expanding ?

Numerical terms, time, numbers ..etc are invented by human beings. We are just intelligence passer-by somewhere in the Universe. We are intelligence to come up with numbers, languages, wise enough to set up systems to govern people. However, sad to say, we are just too tiny to understand the Universe itself, and I really mean JUST the Universe itself. I believe with our current intelligence, wisedom, we can explore the matters within the Universe, i.e. our neighbours. Something expanding within nothing ? No wonder all forms of gods everywhere!

To sum it up, may be it is just a question to Scientists, do you believe in 'expanding universe' or 'forever' ?
