Why not?

Because it would then have had to expand at an infinite rate for at least part of the time between now and the start. Now, you might like to believe that is plausible, but a physicist would not.

I don't think you can speak for all physicists.

Now you're assuming it wasn't infinite to begin with, right?

What's happening in the 1/(infinity) thread proves there is repetition in an infinite universe! :smoke:
