Eternity is a long, long time.
A number of Talkorigin apologists strongly came out against any sort of perpetual motion engine. Against any sort of free energy. This looks to be reasonable. In fact, there are laws of physics that were articulated in verbal form to describe such phenomena. In short, you cannot get more energy out of energy that is there. We're heard of the sayings, Output equals input. Energy just doesn't pop out nowhere.
But, you have a problem. Perhaps many scientists have looked this fact. The past is eternal. If you could draw an arrow that described backward in time, it would never stop. But the problem is that you have energy. Could that energy exist eternally back in time in order for it to be here now? Another problem put forth by scientists, is that energy will run out in this universe. Someday the universe will run cold and all the energy will be transformed into heat ,and this heat will spread out into the universe thus reaching equilibrium.
So how do you come up with enough energy to fill up all the space in the universe to fill all infinity past? Is there enough room in infinity past? Would it take up every square inch of space? If it did it couldn't exist in infinity. There must be infinite space for infinite energy.
The only solution for this question is that there must be infinite energy. We know so because there has been enough energy to get us thus far, though the universe appears to have finite amount of energy. In other words, the universe could not exist in infinity and thus cannot be God. Since the universe is not God, God must be apart from the universe and separate.
