What is your objection to the cosmological proof of the existence of God?

Home More advice Religion, Spirituality & Folklore

First, "proof" is used because it's a syllogism, not because there cannot be debate. The Cosmological proof goes like this:

1) Everything that has a beginning has a cause. (your computer wasn't always a computer) 2) The universe has a beginning. (BANG!) 3) Therefore, the universe was caused. (Big Bang needs a something to make it bang)

If you object to 1), you would be saying it has no beginning. Those random particles that pop into vacuums are seemingly uncaused. We simply do not know what causes it yet. If you object to 2), you would being saying that the universe has an infinite series of regression. If this is true, then nothing began anything. If nothing began anything, we should have no matter, space, or time.
