    so its either not infinite, or the stars have not existed forever, or both
    well done, who are you quoting though?

    Infinity does not imply absolute existence of every possibility, only the potential for possibility. Also we're not entirely sure the universe is infinite in the way that infinite exists in math.

        Infinity isn't science, its math and math has long been known to be incomplete and logically explosive.

          at least it has the self awareness of its own incompleteness, unlike literally every other alternative approach to pursuing knowledge.

            Science also accounts for that using a method with an infinite feedback loop of evaluation and refinement.

        We don't know that.

        A horizontal line is infinite, doesn't mean it will ever go up.
        Infinity does not automatically denote all possibilities.

    But we've already established that light can't travel infinitely, this nullifies the infinite light hypothesis

      It's possible OP has read and misunderstood Olber's paradox.

      The conclusion of which is that the universe cannot be infinite in size and age.

        In an infinite string of random digits there are still infinite 0s alongside infinite multiples of 1, though.

    Light doesn't propagate instantaneously from our point of view, that is why there is no infinite brightness. On top of that light intensity is the inverse of the distance squared, so at infinite distance is effectively zero. Finally in the current model of the universe space can expand faster than light can propagate, so far away light will never reach us.

      No, division by infinity is not that well defined and infinity divided by any arbitrarily large number is still infinity.

        No it's not when the dividing infinity is larger in scale

          >the dividing infinity
          What part of division by infinity is not well defined confused you?
          The only scale that matters is that infinity divided by any arbitrarily large number will always still just be infinity.

            You are the one who is confused. It seems you have been filtered by basic limits and L'Hopital's rule.

            The limit (n)/(n+1) as n goes to infinity is not only well defined but exactly approaches 1 from the right. Pretty much all of calculus your first semester of undergraduate calculus will deal with determining what happens when you have an indeterminate form (0/0) or (infinity/infinity) and still can get a convergent limit.

    Light speed is capped.
    The universe is finite.
    There is no infinite brightness.

      For light, maybe, but the speed of the universe's expansion is faster than the speed of light.

    An infinite universe is no guarantee that there is infinite brightness somewhere anymore than an infinite and nonrepeating string of numbers "010010001000010000010000001..." necessarily contains a "9" somewhere just because it is infinite.

      Unless you just recognize that "9" is equal to 9 consecutive 1s.

        But in a string that doesn't contain a 9, how can we know that a series of nine 1s would remain stable long enough to even be detectable? I hypothesise that after enough time, any string will decay into an alternating series of 0 and 1.

          That wouldn't be random.
          It would make gambling pretty easy if by now every roulette table cycled between red and black instead of actually being random.
