You’re probably familiar with the kalam cosmological argument for the existence of God:
- Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
- The universe began to exist.
- Therefore, the universe has a cause.
Once, while discussing this argument with an atheist, he responded:
“Why does the argument for a first cause of the universe conveniently stop with God? Where did God come from?”
So now I pose his question to you. Give it your best shot! What would you say to this atheist? How would you begin? What points would you try to make? What would your overall strategy be? Address any or all of these points. Both short and long answers are welcome.
As before, Brett will have a video up on Thursday to give his response and interact with your comments, and on Friday I’ll post an article on this subject at STR Place. But first, let’s hear from you!
