In the meanwhile, I thought I’d clarify some of what part I hopes to say by having fun with it! Here are some quotes that show the amusing aspects of First Cause arguments:
Craig’s God is timeless, spaceless, and immaterial. In other words, Craig’s God === Nothing. So something did come from nothing, and you should believe in nothing!
Just one uncaused non-being being to cause all else and explain everything! That’s all we ask, oh Muse of Cop-out Philosophers.
Uncaused Universe? Nonsense. There has to be one uncaused thing before it that caused it.
An almost infinite number of causes back to the Big Bang. And then, only one more. In our profession, we term it The Prime Catchall.
Feel free to use your favorite one in “serious philosophical debate”. Mine is #3, I think. : )
