Is the size of the universe finite or infinite? Scientists tell us the universe is expanding.If the size of the universe at any moment is finite, into what does it expand? Does that "nothingness" into which it expands form part of the universe too, or is it something exterior to the universe?
You are right that the universe is expanding...
But some scientists believe there are more than one universe...

the universe is finite, there are several arguments for this. one being that if the universe was infinite there would be an infinite number of stars to light up our night skys and our nights would in fact be light. The fact that our universe is expanding is also another suggestion that is is in fact finite, how can something that is infinite in size grow larger? we know our universe is expanding from a law called the doppler effect, which effects the light passing us from distant galaxies.
We couldn't even explorer an atom. So our information on Universe in just nothing. Universe is Infinite or finite, these are just theories, not a proven fact. And it would always be a theory. (maybe)

Matter cannot be created or destroyed. Ok that's easy.So that means that the Universe has been around forever. That would be great, except there are no real world examples of infinity. If infinity is not a quality of anything in the Universe, how can it be a quality of the Universe? It doesn't...

...there would be no gravity.My reasoning comes from the Shell Theorem:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_theoremSimply put, a spherical shell exerts no net gravitational force on objects inside it. Likewise, there will be no net gravitational force on a point at the very center of a solid...

Does two finite entities causing an infinite reaction challenge our definition of infinity?Divide 10 by 3 or face two mirrors across from each other and two finite entities cause an infinite reaction. The universe is also deemed infinite but it too could conceivably be enabled from two or more as...

Can any religious scriptures explain whether the universe is finite or infinite?

Is the Universe finite?If yes, then what is there beyond the universe? If no, then infinity is not just a theoretical concept. There are objects which are infinite in size!!
