To make it clear, I’m not an atheist, just a questioning Catholic.
I’ve been thinking about an infinite regress and how it’s illogical. The universe couldn’t have always been here, because then we’d have an infinite past, but then we would never reach the present, because it’s impossible to reach an infinite amount of time. Thus, this a definitive proof of God. The universe had to be created because an infinite past is impossible and needed a beginning and creation.
However, how does God escape the idea of an infinite regress? How did God reach the point where He created the universe assuming He was around infinitely into the past. Is our present not the same as God’s present?
