Let's consider the possibility that time began an infinity ago.

Now one of the things that must be true is that the present moment could not have arrived yet. If it has arrived, then it would be the same thing as saying that an infinity can be crossed from one end to the other; but the definition of an infinity is that it doesn't have an end point.

But the present moment

*has*arrived. Therefore, time could not have begun an infinity ago.

Since it began at a finite moment in time, how are we to conceive of the moment before time began? Is it even possible for there to be such a moment, since the word "moment" necessarily involves the existence of time?
