    It's actually the other way 'round, but your ego can't allow you to admit the truth. So much for your independent search for the truth, I guess. It doesn't matter to me if you admit it, but for your sake it would be better for you to understand the silly nature of such claims to infallibility and inerrancy. We're all just fallible human beings trying to figure stuff out to the best of our ability and we sometimes need to start over with a new thought and see how well it fits or what might need to go by the wayside.
    βλέπομεν γὰρ ἄρτι δι᾿ ἐσόπτρου ἐν αἰνίγματι, τότε δὲ πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον·
    ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

    I believe this will in part answer your question concerning Baha'i beliefs concerning 'infinities' and the nature of our physical existence.


    Source: http://bahaiteachings.org/god-infinity-and-black-holes


    If you believe that science has all the answers, or that science has removed much of the beauty and mystery of existence, this information should challenge those views. If you believe that the basic “laws” of physics always apply to everything, then the very nature of black holes negates that belief. And if you accept the Baha’i principle of the agreement of science and religion, then this perpetual, galactic, multiversal engine of creation sounds a lot like the work of a Supreme Being, a Creator, a First Cause, an incubator of Being, a generative spiritual force far beyond the abilities of science to conceptualize or understand.

    These contemporary scientific theories and discoveries support the remarkable Baha’i view that creation has no beginning and no end. Perhaps the writings of Baha’u’llah can give us a hint about the enormity of this realization:

    A drop of the billowing ocean of His endless mercy hath adorned all creation with the ornament of existence, and a breath wafted from His peerless Paradise hath invested all beings with the robe of His sanctity and glory. A sprinkling from the unfathomed deep of His sovereign and all-pervasive Will hath, out of utter nothingness, called into being a creation which is infinite in its range and deathless in its duration. The wonders of His bounty can never cease, and the stream of His merciful grace can never be arrested. The process of His creation hath had no beginning, and can have no end. – Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 61.
