It is through the idea of a God, that is perfect, sentient, all powerful, all good, all knowing, distinct, separate, holy, uncopy-able, and not capable of being destroyed. This comes through the thought of something that nothing greater can be imagined. The premises are: 1.It is a conceptual truth (or, so to speak, true by definition) that God is a being than which none greater can be imag...

Is the Kalam Cosmological Argument valid?

Logic-Bomb

The Kalam Cosmological Argument has been used extensively by William Lane Craig. Many apologists have taken to this argument as a valid excuse to believe in god.

The Kalam Cosmological Argument is logically fallacious, and while that doesn't disprove the existence of the god it argues for, it does disprove the claim based on Kalam. Round one will be for acceptance and definitions....
