Religious Studies- Cosmological (1st cause)

HideShow resource information

Cosmological:

1. Everything that exsists has a cause of its exsistence

2. The Universe exsists

THEREFORE

3. The Universe has a cause of its exsistence.

4. If the Universe has a cause, God is the cause

5. God exists

...

"unsound" "everything that exsists has a cause for its exsistence" (1)

God exsists but doesnt have a cause itself (1) is false 

Kalam Argument:

1."Everything with a beginning to its exsistence has a cause for its exsistence"

2." The Universe has a beginning"

3. "Universe must have a cause for its exsistence.

Support:

1. Things that dont have a cause for its exsistence.

2. Universe could be infinite (but...paradox)- NOTHING.
