"There is always something in existence before. There is no beginning in string theory"

If there is always something in existence before, then you are saying time is infinite, since you would never find a beginning. If time has been doing this forever, as you suggest, then it HAS taken an infinite amount of time to reach the present right now. It seems to me that you are contradicting yourself: You say we cannot reach an event that takes an infinite amount of time to reach, but then you say there is always something in existence before.

Think about what you're saying. You are saying that before this point in time(the present), there has always been something in existence(time). You are basically saying that time has lasted forever before the present, or infinite.
