why? for them to rust they need water and oxygen. look at the floating chunks of iron floating in space (called asteroids) do they ever get gnawed and bitten by time?
Yes, but probably at such a small rate that it won't yet make impact on them.

nope.
I'm telling you, love is also the correct answer.

You can fall out of love. Be denied love, lose love etc.

i'm on a riddle website which has some really good ones. Here is another

Many have fallen but none have died.
Many have lost me and restlessly cried.
Many have I taken eternally
And many I have denied.

like i said, in space. and i doubt bacteria would have an effect on metal.
In the context of "lasting forever", i would say, yes, it would. Or bit's of dust etc that get onto the metal.

alright, lets test you some more. Here are two more

An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face
"That eye is like to this eye"
Said the first eye,
"But in low place,
Not in high place."

and

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.

No, the rate at which it is eroding or whatever is probably so small that in our lifetime or from when earth began, it hasn't been "gnawed" or whatever, but in the context of lasting forever, it won't.

Nothing can last forever, because there is no limit defined for "forever".

ok, so in the end of time it will cease to exist, but thet does not mean it has been bitten or gnawed, it has just gone.

In the context of the riddle i.e.) realistically (LOL) time will have an indirect effect on metal, as i said.

It is impossible for anything to last forever.

it's metaphoric, Guz.

ok it might have some effect but it will not bite or gnaw it, that implis some sort of decay.
