Infinity is not a number in the ordinary sense of the word. It is neither odd nor even.

Here is an interesting paradox about the parity of infinity:

If you multiply all integers together you get infinity. So 2 is a factor of infinity and so infinity must be even. But then one more than this number is also infinity and this new infinity must, therefore, be odd!
