  1. In this question, it all depends on what to start counting. If we take some starting point, then no. If there is a starting point, then you can count down the time from it to the current one. It can be arbitrarily large, but it will always be finite. For example, approximately 13.8 billion years have passed since the big bang.

    However, if we consider time in isolation from a specific reference point, then yes, it is quite possible that an infinite amount of time has passed in the past. Here, for example, you can take the time that the universe was in a singular state. Assuming, of course, that time existed at all at that moment.

  2. mathematics and physics cannot provide an official answer to this question.

    According to the current model, the most truthful theory of the development of the universe is the theory of inflation (according to A. Linde) and denies the big bang as an outdated theory. based on this theory, the multiverse can exist forever, without beginning or end. The point of origin of inflation was not a point of singularity, and the universe existed before that.

  3. Can. If you accept the fact that time does not exist, and you specify the starting point of your “present”, you will accept everything else, along the vector of the past, as “infinite”
