: : So then what do you believe in? that in a infinite change that the universe was created by mistake It can nearly bearly ever happen THIS is the percentile it will happen (.0000000000000000000000infinite000000000000000000infinite000000000000001

: I don't know where you got your numbers but that percent really dosn't matter anyway. Reason being, infinite time! No matter what the percent if it has infinite amount of time for it to happen sooner or later it will.

Your right in suggesting that numbers are irrelevant, but consider your arguement more closely.

I've done great study with infinitism; whether it is possible to have an "actual" infinity exist in space time. It is not. It is, however, possible to have a "potential" infinity in existance within the realm of time.

Time cannot allow for an infinite amount of itself. This would be like trying to jump out of a bottomless pit. (speaking from cosmological origins)

Remember that if the universe was created somewhere on your infinite time line, then the universe would also have ceased to exist an eternity ago...
