"infinity" doesn't exist, it was simply made up by mathematicians because, if it didn't exist, their formulas wouldn't work.
A play on words in the same vein, from physicist JE Cohen (from the book "A random walk in science"):
Alexander the Great was warned by an oracle that if he crossed a certain river he would meet his death. Now forewarned is four-armed, which is an odd number of arms for a man to have. But we all know that man has an even number of arms and the only number which can be odd and even, is infinity; hence Alexander the Great had an infinite number of arms. So, Alexander the Great did not exist because he had an infinite number of arms.
