Quote from: Bogie_smilesNo one seems to doubt that infinite and eternal are two logical characteristics of the universe.That might have been true a century ago.But with Hubble's discovery of the expansion of the universe, people realized that the universe can't have been eternal in the past.And when the lifecycle of stars and black holes was understood, people realized that the universe will look very different in the future (and very run-down). So if the universe is very different in the future, does that make it eternal in the future?

By stopping in occasionally to post a pointless comment the thread is put first in unread posts so you get more views, which is the point, I guess. Well I hope it makes you feel important and listened to. Now you can go away for a few months...
My problem with this thread is that OP Bogie_Smiles, is by his own admission, a lay person, with no background in science. The question is, how is it possible that a person, without knowing the basics of how things work, put forward a postulate for multiple Universes and Multiple points of origin, in the form of multiple Big Bangs.Even if you have been involved in such imaginings and discussions since the year 2001, if the basics of physics are unknown to you, how can any sort of valid description be given to a theory that encompasses the Universe?
Granted, with the discovery everyday of massive and more massive black holes, such a possibility is not entirely outside the bounds of reason. But, then again what is the point of raising such suppositions.
True, a believable story could be written in the form of science fiction. But unless an explanation is given that starts with the basics of how nature works: The argument is non-existent.
Even though everything that we can observe (the observable universe) points to an expanding universe with a point of origin, those observations do not preclude the possibility of "infinite and eternal".
