I don't know about a start and finish but I do know time has a cruel and spiteful nature.
For example if your waiting it slows down to a painful almost backwards flow
And if you need time to last it laughs at you and goes into hyper-drive.
Depends if you believe in the big bang!
If you do you could say time started then. Again scientists also say that one day the universe will collapse. This is when time would end.
At least in our reality, and what we can observe.
Time really only exists as a measurement of the progression of events. For example, how long it takes the Earth to orbit around the sun. If these things didn't exist as measurements, then there would be nothing to suggest time was passing at all. You could then make the argument that time has no beginning or end, only the beginning and ending of things that can measure it.
This is one of the hardest questions for me to answer. My mind works like this, if time has a beginning, then what was there before that...and before that...and so on, until you try to go back so far that you conclude that there is no beginning.
If you believe in Big Bang Theory, then what was there before the Big Bang?
If you believe in God, then what was there before God?
If I asked what was there 100z zillion years ago who could provide that answer? Then lets say that we found the answer then next question would be what happened 100 zillion years before that, and we would go on and on forever.
Same thing for the end.
So I conclude that time has no beginning or no ending in absolute terms. Time only really matters here and now.
