in•fin•i•ty ĭn-fĭn′ĭ-tē►

n.
The quality or condition of being infinite.
n.
Unbounded space, time, or quantity.
n.
An indefinitely large number or amount.

Whether it should be a noun or not - whether their definition is precise or not - is totally irrelevant to the fact that in English "infinity" is a noun.

    Though often tempted to encourage a dog to distinguish color I refuse to argue with him about it
    It's just same Satanism as always -
    • separate the bottom from the top,
    • the left from the right,
    • the light from the dark, and
    • blame each for the sins of the other
    • - until they beg you to take charge.
    • -- but "you" have been observed --
