Perhaps An Infinite Amount of Time Has Already Expired...

Here's a quick argument which is playing off of "if an infinite amount of time has elapsed, then there is good reason to expect that the event had ample time to occur." Again this is asumming WHEN, rather than the more correct term: IF. However, we should point out that if an infinite amount of time has occured, we'd be in complete entropy. And many things with far less probability, which would still be considered amazing, would have occurred.

What If We Are In A Big-Bang/Big-Collapse Universe...

Well, Hubble showed back in 1929 that the red shift effect of light is not random, but is directly porportional to a galaxy's distance away from us -- in other words, the farther it is, the faster it is moving away.

How fast is fast? Well if you were in your car traveling at 60,000 miles per SECOND, you'd be going about 30% the speed of light. If you were approaching a red stoplight, it would appear to you as green, from the Doppler shift effect. [The Secret Life of Quanta, by Dr. M.Y. Han]

The universe is definately expanding by observance of Doppler-shifts of heavenly light sources. The universe grows by 5%-10% every thousand-million years. And if you total all known masses, you find that there is 1/100th of the mass required to halt or slow the expansion of the universe. [ Brief History of Time, Stephen Hawkins ]

The solar system is estimated to be only about 5 billion years old. [ Han ] We are not rebounding infinitely in a pulsating universe, nor do we have the means to do so later.
