There also has to be a Creator of this engineer. Similarly who created the sun, the moon, the stars, etc.? There has to be a creator for everything". Then he posed the question, "Do you agree that everything has a creator?"

The great argument for God was that there had to be a Creation, a beginning. But my objection was simple. If God was the beginning who began God?2

This principle of causation is so fundamental that if I said that the chair you are sitting on, which must have had a beginning, just popped into existence without any cause, you might justifiably think I need a psychiatric assessment!

The universe had a beginning; almost no one disputes that, because the laws of thermodynamics demand it: the universe is running down and it cannot have been running do ...more
