You cannot create nothing from something because nothing does not exist.
You cannot create something from nothing because nothing does not exist.
You can create something from something because everything does exist.
This is why there is no beginning.
Nothing is the absence of all things. That is not logically impossible. Just subtract all existence untill there is nothing which exists. What you're saying is almost like saying if you look in a box which contains no objects at all, you can't say "no objects are in this box" because "no objects" does not exist. No objects is technically "nothing", but it's just a way to describe the absence of something.
Just because something has a definition and concept behind it does not mean that it is actually "something". What IS something is the CONCEPT of nothingness.
I think I would personally label that as a conceptual infinity. I'm talking in terms of something that exists in reality, not just in concept. I'm not saying that infinite has a specific value, but a true infinite "thing" is something that already has an infinite amount of something in existence. That which has a beginning can not be infinite, because there is not an infinite(Still not positing a particular value) amount of time it exists, and we know this due to there being an age of it because of the PRESENT. Something that had no beginning, has an infinite amount of past, and is thus an actual infinite object. A part of it already exists as infinite.
I'm sleepy and just getting off of a really good buzz, so forgive me if I had trouble explaining myself.
