The universe is obviously infinite, and has no dimensions, bounds or limits in any usual sense.
Proof ? : Just go to any supposed limit, and point to the other side.


IOW no proof.


Not sure what IOW is. Probably something obvious, but I'm missing it at the moment.


IOW = "In Other Words"!

In any case, assume the universe IS bounded and has some presumed limit. One could theoretically stand at that limit, and then just point a LY further. Since the universe is infinite and includes everything, anywhere you're pointing would also be part of the universe.

....

It's not everyday you can carbon date some poster's boring ideas but
in this case we can determine your ideas stopped evolving in
the mid 18th century.

[Lessons In Hillbilly Astronomy #1:]
What happens if you have an infinite universe?
If you had an infinite Universe with a constant density of stars and/or
galaxies, then you'd wind up seeing an infinite amount of light from every
direction you'd look in. You'd see all the stars that were nearby, and then
in the spaces between the stars, you'd see the stars farther away.

What is Wilhelm "Olbers s" Paradox?
Wilhelm Olbers [1758-1840]. #proposed what is known as Olbers' paradox, which re
lates to
the problem of why the sky is dark at night. If the universe is endless and
uniformly populated with luminous stars, then every line of sight must
eventually terminate at the surface of a star.

And yet you think an infinite number of point sources act
like a point.

We get the increasing idea you dont really know anything much.

Amusingly the OP has more chance of being correct than your grab
bag of what you think is "science".

Some of your readers may know an old math prof -- let me call him
Rene -- who used to rail against what he called "fact spitters".
People that had memorised an odd collection of factoids but were
unable to rub any 2 of them together to see which ones contradicted.

Seems Prof Rene had run across many of these people teaching college
math because they passed exams but were totally helpless in
imagining anything new or meaningful. Jr college generally
relies on knowlege of factoids from highschool, but when people
get to 3rd year or so they start failing because they actually
havent learned to think.

I imagine many of the fact spitters could recite off a list of 18th century
pseudo science without knowing what happened to it in the
subsquent centuries after they invented telescopes and computers.

You know you're a hillbilly if #42:
You hold many strong opinions that are "obviously true" and
"stand on their own".
Which is good because any 2 of them contradict each other
as well as most of accepted science and logic.

How can you say that? I never said or implied anything of the sort.

Speak for yourself. I certainly know a hell of a lot more than you.

"stand on their own".



Yes and I'm prepared to defend them. Why don't you engage in an argument about any of them?


Which is good because any 2 of them contradict each other
as well as most of accepted science and logic.



Rubbish ! You'll have to explain this.

That you know of. LOL.

I found some new research on you:

Dunning-Kruger Effect: Ignorance and Overconfidence Affect Intuitive
Thinking, New Study Says
The Debrief, 13 Apr 2021
In a newly published study, researchers say the Dunning-Kruger Effect
can cause low-performers to overestimate their judgments during the
intuitive...


You many fans will recognize the type instantly.

--
Kruger and Dunning argue that for a given skill, incompetent people will:
1. tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
2. fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
3. fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;
4. recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, only if
they can be trained to substantially improve [their own performance].

Dunning later drew an analogy with anosognosia in which a person who
suffers a physical disability because of brain injury seems unaware of
or denies the existence of the disability, even for dramatic
impairments such as blindness or paralysis.

Dunning & Kruger & others concluded that the root cause is that, in
contrast to high performers, "poor performers do not learn from
feedback suggesting a need to improve".

Ehrlinger, Joyce; Johnson, Kerri; Banner, Matthew; Dunning, David;
Kruger, Justin (2008). "Why the unskilled are unawa Further
explorations of (absent) self-insight among the incompetent".
Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes 105 (105): 98-121.
