  • The cosmological argument
    • 3/5 ways demonstrating the existence of God
      • Ways 1 and 2
        • Motion, Potentiality and actuality
          • 2. Efficient cause
            • Follow in order
              • not to infinity
                • e.g. heat for hot choc
                  • Motion, Potentiality and actuality
