I’ve watched about 4 hours of debates about the Kalam Cosmological Argument (argument for the existence of a creator God), and I’ve come to a conclusion.
I don’t know.
This realization came from the fact that no matter how much argumentation I’ve heard, I cannot get over the fact that the most important piece of information on the issue is missing. There is no accepted theory of quantum gravity. Without a theory of quantum gravity, one cannot even talk about what explanations for the Big Bang are possible (besides the usual-“Transcendent, mysterious explanation outside of time and space that I call God”). Without knowing about possible explanations, it seems futile to argue for one particular explanation. The universe may show that explanation to be wrong, and those who argue for that explanation to be fools for not suspending judgment until the relevant information is available.
