I don't understand the second connection you made. Other two are quite obvious though.

Also quite obviously we are dealing with the three major monotheistic religions.

BTW I think they didn't want to use the Latin cross (aka Christian cross) since it is an explicit religious symbol, while crescent is not, and the Star of David may be found in other non-religious context. Just my 2 cents

I think that worshipping infinity is something exclusive to machines and it has nothing to do with christianity.

ohh I love that idea and I hope a future Machinarium game fully explores the wonderful, wonderful "implied" world that Amanita have created.

Quite a lot of christians (mainly philosophers) thought that as infinity is inconcievable in the natural universe and we still understand it then infinity must be in God.
So, its slightly more complicated than that but that's the idea.

The concept of ethernal life is not excusive to Christianity, that's why I think that the symbol means something else.

Infinity is mainly used as a humbling symbol in theology.

Thats what I said. My guess was more simple and less philosofical, three symbols/mass schedule, three religions, those major ones we all know.
The symbols themselves may or may not have a meaning (Sun, Moon and a star would fit as well in the game)

Interesting discussion and good point, madeye.  I'm reminded of a great line from the original "Planet Of The Apes" movie.  In the opening moments of the film Charlton Heston's character is travelling in deep space at close to the speed of light and he says: "...seen from out here everything seems different. Time bends. Space is boundless. It squashes a man's ego. I feel lonely."

I always thought that scene was well written.  Given that Heston's character is an atheistic existentialist, what could be more terrifying to such a person than to have their ego "sqwashed" (humbled)?!  It's like that gizmo in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy called "The Total Perspecive Vortex".  What do you do when you're shown all of infinity with a teeny tiny arrow that says "You are here"?!  (Yikes!!)  Shocked
