Worse than that.. If eternity future is possible then why not eternity past..
Eternity past relegates “the Big Bang” to fiction... and could cause some physics people serious headaches..
The absence of time would be timelessness.
And somewhere between those two would be "a time of no more counting."
If life emerged from otherwise nonlife-bearing chemicals because God started the process this way, then we have an inverted exegis which makes most of the Bible rather useless if not absurd. For example, man did not fall from perfection but is rather evolving upward, away from his primordial beginning to something more and more perfect.
So there was no fall and nothing is wrong with man that the evolutionary process + time won’t make right, hence man does not need a Savior.
According to this inverted exegis, vast numbers of lifeforms arose and died perhaps millions of years before man finally emerged. So who is responsible for death and suffering but God Himself?
God is a God of death not life. He is not a God we run to but run away from. Here the inverted exegis reveals its’ Gnostic pedigree.
