“If the universe must have a cause, and God is the cause, then it follows that God must have a cause. So why not just start with the existence of the universe?”

    Why must the universe have a cause? A beginning as if no process could have existed before the cause set in motion? It seems to me that it exist at all is enough to say that it is part of a process that has always been and will always be. To say otherwise is a smaller view that doesn’t make sense or at the very least is really hard to explain. Simply saying “God did it all” denies the now rather obvious facts that he simply didn’t need to.

    This subject bores me, and I tend to dismiss any hopes of having a deep discussion with any religionista who brings the subject up. It just gives them away as someone who lacks any faculty of critical reasoning.
