Can anyone tell me that out of 2^160 addresses possible...

How much is 2^160 in a linear format? Or how many quadrillions are there? Are you competing in addresses mining using reverse asics to get some speed?

According to wolfram alpha...http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2%5E160&dataset=

I think that'll need to wait until the heat death of the universe before we'll have a collision.

still far away from being impossible, it could happen one day, this is why it's better to split bitcoin(big amount) in to multiple address

You and I have a very different definition of the word "impossible".

it could happen one day,

No.  As long as the addresses are properly generated, it can't.

this is why it's better to split bitcoin(big amount) in to multiple address

If we assume for the sake of argument that you are correct about there being a chance that it could happen, wouldn't you be increasing the likelihood that someone will collide with one of your addresses if you split your money up into multiple addresses?  If you split up you money into 10 addresses, wouldn't that mean that you are ten times more likely to lose some of it?

Till today, I might have surely used a minimum of 150 addresses.

For those still worrying about having an address collision, I think they simply don't get how incredibly low the chance is.

Is it possible for one to be struck by lightning 10 times tomorrow? Theoretically yes.
Should one be worried about that? I won't.

How many are possible BTC addresses that can be generated ? How many GB space need for all of them ?

You have to have ~ 2135 GB to store all their privkeys

The probability across a address by another one is very very low but i don't feel safe .... it could be with more address possible ? BTC foundation team could change that ?

So is the probability of all the air molecules spontaneously collecting together in one corner of the room and suffocating everyone in the room.

but i don't feel safe

Then you should study more maths.

it could be with more address possible?

No.

BTC foundation team could change that ?

No. That would be a waste of time and effort right now.

You want to say probability of someone hack me by account number and password on a bank is more than 6 billion men across me on BTcs addressees ?

You don't need any space to store all of the private keys. Check out directory.io. You can find all of the private keys listed there.

In fact I even do not need directory.io
I already have all private keys.
For example the key number 0xc4bbcb1fbec99d65bf59d85c8cb62ee2db963f0fe106f483d9afa73bd4e39a8a in my collection (I really like hex counting by the way) is 5KJvsngHeMpm884wtkJNzQGaCErckhHJBGFsvd3VyK5qMZXj3hS
