    Yes they are. You can have all things on the table for example, or any closed context, thus all things would be finite in that regard. However, in light of the bigger scene, the items we are dealing with would not be all things, as some things can and do exist outside of our current scene (the table). The only way it is possible for no thing to exist outside of the given scene is if the scene covers all territory. Only an infinite entity can do so.

    Sorry but no.

    There is a constant amount of matter + energy in the universe. Constant implies finite.

    Have you ever taken an astronomy class? Physics?

    Ever heard Tertullian's famous remark, "I believe because it's absurd"?

    Oh I get it! You're subtly calling me an F! What a clever ruse.

    My way of condescending is by use of sarcasm and pretense conceding too. We're like brothers!

    Hmm... I may have lost my character there for a moment. Hang on while I go check what I did before.

    ...Minutes later following deep reflection...

    You need to develop your inferior Introverted Sensing in order to ensure that you do not skid over words that you have read. The working definition of infinity with respect to this thread has been posted.
    But sir, look what I posted nary a hay-hour ago:

    See? I have great Si. It's true because I said it. It's a proof.

    The universe must be all things or infinite, otherwise the principle of existence could not be justified.
    You're wrong on several levels, dag.
    I know your game fella. It's become a bore.

    This indeed shows that the universe as we experience is not all there is. All things of this world are finite. Check the noumena/phenomena distinction one more time, its in the article I've offered to Eric B.

    The only way a finite entity could create itself is if it is possible for something to come from nothing. Do you believe in such miracles?
