  • The First Cause Argument
    • The first cause argument is a argument for the existence of god.
      • It works on the basis that, something must have created the universe, it cant have been by chance.
        • This thing has to be god.
          • Some people believe this as they have nothing to believe in.
            • This is because they have nothing else to believe in as no theory has been proved on the creation of the universe.
              • These people then think that God is in their opinion the most likely candidate.
          • Most atheists and agnostics believe that science does have a reason for the cause of the universe, but humans don't yet have the tools of knowledge to figure it out.
            • Another thing that atheists and agnostics believe is that if god created the universe then who or what created god.
