The Universe certainly needs a cause to exist. But why think that every mind must have a cause for its existence? There doesn’t seem to be any logical contradiction in thinking that a mind could have existed forever, especially if it is a perfect, divine mind that exists timelessly and without change. On the contrary, there does seem to be a contradiction in saying that something could begin to exist without a cause.If God made us, What made him
Was He/it Pre existing?
Was he before creation or a Product of creation?
Every mind we know is also a human mind, but that wouldn’t show there are no minds that are not human, like aliens or God. We can imagine fairly easily other minds existing that are not human (fiction writers have been doing this for millennia), but we really can’t do the same and imagine something coming from nothing.
Remember that the first cause of the universe was responsible for the existence of space and time; this means that this cause must also be immune to the restrictions of space and time (that is, be immaterial and eternal). This means the first cause could not be a mere material object (like an alien).
Also, to create the universe as we know it today would require a being of considerable power and intelligence. Especially intelligent, because it created a universe with a precise balance of conditions that are favorable to life.
No, rather God caused the Universe to exist.Or is the Universe itself is "God"
No, but how would he even define something as evil based on the atheistic worldview? If we're all just stuff, just all a bag of chemicals and atoms, our ancestors were fish, and there is nothing more to us than that, there is no God, no absolute standard to measure something, no ultimate standard of good then how would they even call something evil?He would obviously define it in Relative Terms, isn't that a Given?
It is the only way we can define things which cannot be Quantified, it is by using relative reasoning
It's just, whatever happens just happens, there's nothing we ought to do, there is no real basis for moral indignation at anything.
