Is the KCA a valid argument for the existence of God?

Asked by: 21MolonLabe
  • Yes it Is

    Kalam Cosmological Argument:
    (1) Everything that begins to exist has a cause
    (2) The universe has a began to exist
    Therefore:
    (3) The universe has a cause

    Firstly, the KCA is a two part argument and most persons familiar with the argument only seem to know the first part of the argument which consists of three parts. These parts only prove it necessary that the Universe has a cause however part two of the argument goes on to describe that cause.

    It can be summed up as such: "... Since the universe can't cause itself, its cause must be beyond the space-time universe. It must be spaceless, timeless, immaterial, uncaused, and unimaginably powerful. Much like… God."

  • Kalam Cosmological Argument

    This is the basic argument.
    (1) Everything that has a beginning of its existence has a cause of its existence.
    (2) The universe has a beginning of its existence.
    Therefore:
    (3) The universe has a cause of its existence.
    (4) If the universe has a cause of its existence then that cause is God.
    Therefore:
    (5) God exists.

    The problem with this is (4) where it insists the existence of a factor to determine that the factor exists. This is even worse than circular reasoning. In reality, this is just silly as it could be used to claim anything exists. All you have to do is replace the word "God" with whatever you want proven.
    Example: Argument to the existence of leprechauns.
    (1) Everything that has a beginning of its existence has a cause of its existence.
    (2) The universe has a beginning of its existence.
    Therefore:
    (3) The universe has a cause of its existence.
    (4) If the universe has a cause of its existence then that cause is leprechauns.
    Therefore:
    (5) Leprechauns exists.

  • No its not

    So i googled kca and i dont know why the Kids' Choice Awards would be an argument for a god. If anything its an argument where there is no god, and or, he hates us.

    *after looking at the picture, im questioning if the question is mentioning about the kids choice awards.
    **probably overthinking it.
