arguments for and against cosmological

View mindmap
  • for and against cosmological
    • universe exists and everything needs a cause. only god could be that cause
    • if god didn't exist, nothing else would
    • infinite regress is impossible
    • nothing comes from nothing
    • only god could cause the universe as he is all powerful, and doesn't need a cause
    • contradiction. god can't be uncaused
    • our experience is limited. quantum physics suggests that things randomly appear and disappear
    • if god doesn't need a cause then maybe the universe doesn't
    • is based on assumptions
      • we assume that because everything in our experience needs a cause that everything else must too. but they might not
    • even if the argument demonstrates the need for a first cause, who's to say it's god?
