Is "Infinite" Incoherent?
The topic states the question clearly. Here's the issue it stems from.
Assuming no god, and assuming causality and the first law of thermodynamics, the universe cannot at any point have spontaneously come into existence. If those are refuted, the query ends there. If not, this necessarily means the universe is infinite. However, I think "infinite" might be an ontologically incoherent term. It cannot be defined with any positive traits, only by things it is not.
Epistomologically, it seems no better off than claims of "supernatural" origins, as neither word has any meaning.
Is that accurate, or is there an ontology for "infinite"?
