This is important because the individual cannot be making this decision because of treatable mental health issue or a sudden whim of emotion. This must be a rational decision based on their convictio...

mecap
J.Kenyon

I will present an argument, which is based on Scott Clifton's (TheoreticalBullshit) argument which attempts to use's William Lain Craig's Kalam Cosmological Argument for God to prove that God does not exist. My opponent should defend the KCA. Cliffton's argument [1] can be summarized as follows: P1: Nothing which exists can cause something which does not exist to begin existing. P2: Given (1), Anything which begins to exist was not caused to do so by something which exists. P3: The unive...
