You Rely Too Much On Math

"In math plus infinity is treated exactly the same as minus infinity."

What about imaginary numbers? Those are "made up", hence "imaginary". These numbers don't apply in real life(if I'm wrong correct me please).

I'm talking about reality. It's easy to work backwards in math and say time is always finite. But time doesn't go backwards, only forwards. So you can't really use this math to work backwards.

Think about what you are saying! There was no beginning because the universe has always existed(it is infinite). Saying the past is infinite is saying an infinite ended at the present. You cannot say both. It's called self contradiction. I suggest you spend a day reading that sentence and thinking on it.
