The Bible supports cause and effect because it shows that the Creator Jehovah God is one. The cause was God's Will, and the effect was creation. This concept is also proven scientifically in all things that can be observed- we have never had an effect without a cause. This means that no matter how science tries, they cannot disprove the existence of God.
What are we the nazis? You got to have a valid reason to ban things, you can't ban pencils unless they are proven harmful, the same exact reason can be applied to anything else in this world. This place is not China where media is considered harmful, this is America. The land of religious freedom and expression can be practiced.
The Law of Causality states that everything that has a beginning has a cause. This is the foundation of science, which is a search for rational explanations for phenomena.
This is also true by definition. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary states an effect is:
: a change that results when something is done or happens : an event, condition, or state of affairs that is produced by a cause
: a particular feeling or mood created by something
: an image or a sound that is created in television, radio, or movies to imitate something real
Therefore, an effect must have a cause by definition since an effect is by definition a result of something else.
Established in 1789 by French Chemist Antoine Lavoisier, the law of conservation of mass states that mass is neither created nor destroyed in any ordinary chemical reaction. More simply, the mass of substances produced (products) by a chemical reaction is always equal to the mass of the reacting substances (reactants). Since 1789 this principle has also been shown to apply to energy as well. What does this mean? It means that no event takes place without the input of matter/energy into the equation. In layman's terms; nothing happens without something or someone causing it to. This begs a lot of questions and brings about a lot of assumptions, but I'll let others make their comments.
Whenever we check: it looks like all effects need a cause.
Quantum physics isn't a great argument because we do not know enough of quantum physics. And the total amount of energy in the universe doesn't seem to be increasing sooo.....
And doesn't an effect have a cause by definition?
By definition an effect is what results from a cause. One can posit that certain things have no cause, it can even be necessary from the philosophical point of view to posit at least one uncaused entity, what one cannot do is posit that an effect doesn't have a cause any more than one can say that a husband never had a wife.
Every effect has a medium but not every effect has a cause. This is esp. More notable and useful when you enter theoretical physics or conceptual ideas like economics. There are times in human affairs where this comes up as well as true randomness where things occur for no particular reason.
This a lot. Some things can happen with no cause. It also depends on how you describe effect. Point is, not all effects have a cause. This universe most likely does not have a cause (B-Theory of Time). The idea of everything needing a cause is an old one, outdated.
