It is not reasonable to assume that. Are you assuming that because there

are an infinite number of prime numbers that one of them is infinite? That

is false. There are an infinite number of primes, but each of them is finite.

Also, there is a proof "Every Prime has a succinct certificate", by Vaughn

Pratt IIRC, which says that every prime can be proven so in a finite number

of steps/time.
