now listen to the deductive argument number one an actual infinite cannot exist number two an infinite history of past events is an actual infinite therefore an infinite history of past events cannot exist therefore the universe is finite therefore it had a beginning what the universe began to exist - if the universe began to exist then the universe has a transcendent cause three therefore the universe has a transcendent cause take your pick the God or the universe something always existed and we've argued deductively that the universe began therefore it couldn't have always existed [Music] [Music] if it is the case that you can't prove that God does not exist then you shouldn't be a naturalist you should be some sort of agnostic or something but you shouldn't say that go around saying things like nature is all there is there is nothing beyond matter and energy there is no supernatural reality because those claims exceed what you yourself say you can prove so you need to make more modest claims about your position that are more simply agnostic or something and find a new name rather than naturalism because that's that isn't something that you can sustain the burden of proof for atheists have tried for centuries to disprove the existence of God but no one's ever been able to come up with a successful argument atheists have typically maintained that the universe is eternal and uncreated but we now have pretty strong evidence that the universe is not eternal in the past but had an absolute beginning a finite time ago so listen to the deductive argument number one an actual infinite cannot exist number two an infinite history of past events is an actual infinite therefore an infinite history of past events cannot exist therefore the universe is finite therefore it had a beginning but then the inevitable question arises why did the universe come into being what brought the universe into existence there must have been a transcendent cause which brought the universe into being we can summarize our argument thus far as follows 1 the universe began to exist - if the universe began to exist then the universe has a transcendent cause 3 therefore the universe has a transcendent cause now since we have shown that the universe must have a beginning there are four logical explanations for how the universe began to exist number one it was created via nothing number two it created itself number three it was created by something else that was created and number four it was created by something uncreated let's discuss these together could the universe be created via nothing well first of all most what do we mean by nothing by nothing we mean their absence of something and in this case the absence of the universe that the universe coming into being or existence by nothing is impossible on logical rational and I would even argue empirical grounds you could discuss this mathematically for example what is zero plus zero plus zero it's never going to be three it's zero therefore the universe could not have committed to existence fire nothing let's go to the next option could the universe creates itself well this implies that the universe was in existence and not in existence at the same time which is an impossibility also there's a crude example for you to picture in your mind ask yourself the question can your mother give birth there's obviously not so the next option is could the universe be created by something creating the universe could not be as a result of another universe for example or something else that was created because of the absurdity of an infinite regress imagine this universe universe one being as a result of another universe universe two and universe tubing as a result another universe universe three and this one on ad infinitum we will never have the universe today so I will argue that the final possible explanation which is the universe was created by something uncreated is the most rational explanation now clearly theists and can't agree on one thing if anything exists at all there must be something preceding it that always existed how did this eternally existing reality come to be the answer is that it never came to be it always existed take your pick the God or the universe something always existed and we've argued deductively that the universe began there it could have always existed I'm actually convinced that there really are good reasons to believe that God exists and let me just sketch tonight briefly some of those reasons number one God is the best explanation of the origin of the universe number two God is the best explanation of the fine-tuning of the universe for intelligent life 3 God is the best explanation of objective moral values in the world
