Criticising Craig’s Personal Mind As Causing the Universe

Reading Time: 4 minutes Here is an argument that a commenter on one of my recent YouTube videos on the Kalam Cosmological Argument gave me. It’s actually something I have argued elsewhere (possibly even mentioning in that Kalam series itself). Before I hand over to him, let me remind you of the KCA: Whatever begins to exist has a […]
