The universe does not need a creator


In this last feature, I present his argument against the creation of the universe. Many theists are wont to ask, if there are no gods then where does the universe come from. I have without resorting to cosmology and astronomy argued that what exists necessarily does not need to be created and matter being thus did not have to be created. I cannot imagine the annihilation of matter leave alone it’s creation. This being the case, an immaterial god who is said to leave outside of time and space[William Craig please explain what you mean here] couldn’t have been the cause of all causes[our natural universe].

I have included a video by world renown cosmologist, Stephen Hawking, which I hope you will find both informative and entertaining.

Our philosopher had this to say

They tell us gravely that there is no effect without a cause; they repeat to us very often that the world did not create itself. But the universe is a cause, not an effect; it is not a work, has not been made, because it was impossible that it should be made. The world has always been, its existence is necessary. It is the cause of itself. Nature, whose essence is visibly acting and producing, in order to fulfill her functions, as we see she does, needs no invisible motor far more unknown than herself. Matter moves by its own energy, by the necessary result of its heterogeneity; the diversity of its movements or of its ways of acting, constitute only the diversity of substances; we distinguish one being from another but by the diversity of the impressions or movements which they communicate to our organs.

    Should you be looking for arguments beyond the philosophical, I recommend “A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing” by Lawrence M. Krauss.

    I have watched a Lawrence Krauss video called A Universe from Nothing. While I can’t say I understood it all. But this physicist does do so much to make it understandable. He makes it fun. It is well worth watching the hour long video.

    The first cause argument holds no water. It defines ‘God’ as something that is exempt from the cause requirement, yet the only reason it exists (based on this argument) is for the purpose of satisfying that requirement.
