    If something has existed forever, we could describe its existence in the
    following way


    We know that the present is here, and I don't have any problem with
    something existing for infinity from now.

    However, how does something exist for infinite time and reach the present?
    This seems like an illogical statement, it can never exist for long enough
    to reach the present and therefore is impossible to have always existed.
    Thus time and "existence" must have a point of origin from which to count a
    finite period of time, however great or small, to reach today.
