Many things in our life experience have both finite and infinite aspects. Take fire, for example. Taken at face value, it is an irrefutable fact that fire burns and damages. But when we examine its properties, we see that it also provides lifesaving heat and can cotterize and heal wounds. Science continually subjects that which we know to further studt and testing. That process usually reveals heretofore unknown aspects and new properties. On that basis alone, you could argue that nothing is static.
Sir Bertram Russell wrote a comprehensive proof of the fact that 1 + 1 = 2. I would say our knowledge on that subject is complete.
Whenever the 'lazy eight' sign for infinite pops up in equations, that's a sign that we're either doing something wrong and need to refine our calculations or that we need to develop a new field of physics to solve the problem. There is no such thing as a physical infinity, such as the 'infinite' density of a singularity. Even the socalled 'big bang singularity' wasn't truly infinite in density. It's just that our best known theories break down at that point and fall short of the task at hand. The only physical infinities that can be said to exist are looped spatial extents, such as the surface of a sphere. There are mathematical infinities such as George Cantor's number set theory but they only exist on paper.
nope and I sure don't need any site to do that,,,, the 1st sign of intelligence is to know how little you do know,,,,
Fairly irrefutable but finite? Probability suggests not.
The very reason why the concept 'infinite' ( not same as 'unknown') came into being is to suggest that nothing is finite. It is perpetual drill down into the unknown. We often times mistakenly attribute 'beginning' and 'end' to some thing. But if one chooses to step back and look at it from a perspective, one understands that , it was just set in motion ( which also is part of some bigger process).<br />

Language itself is not finite.
There are things we don't know, but that doesn't mean we won't know it in the future.
According to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, everything changes when we simply observe it. Nothing is finite.
I disagree, I believe in there being an infinite number of dimensions and galaxy. There's no proof that things be finite. If it were finite how come there's so much change? A finite world also would prove no reincarnation. And that just can't be without reincarnation life would be pointless.
No. There there is only a finite number of things to know as well. Mind you this is still a very large number, but yeah. We can still know everything, even with that restriction.
the universe is finite.
