God Part I

One of the most common ontological proofs of God has always been Well someone had to have created everything. One famous analogy goes like this:

You are walking on the beach, you stumble upon a pocket watch. You don't know where it came from. All you know is that someone had to have created it. This parallels with our Universe. Someone had to have created it, right?

I don't know. But I do know that there are other options.

See we may be fallacious in thinking that events happen in a linear fashion. For example, if I push one domino the rest will fall. One event causes another, but there was some start to it. Someone had to have pushed the first domino.

We assume A-->B-->C--D--> ad infintum

But we are overlooking one simple argument:

P1) Everything in nature is cyclical
P2) The universe is in nature
C1) The Universe is cyclical.

What am I getting at? Time might be cyclical. Why does there have to be a beginning to it. Time could be like a ring. Ongoing and forever. Afterall "Time" is the definition of man. We may have misdefined it.

If Time has no beginning, then the argument for the necessity of a Master Creator is disproven.

I'm obviously not saying that this is true. But it might be.

For shame. You recognize that the concept of "time" is man-made, and yet you believe in it enough to declare that we "may have misdefined it." If something is the creation of man, then how can man misdefine it? A man-made concept only really exists inside the minds of those men who believe in said concept. You have a ways to go before you truly undertand things, my man.

The word time is man made. It is used so people can communicate to other people about what that word is supposed to represent.

When we talk about time, we assume that there is a beginning and an end. Áll that I am saying is this:

P1) Everything in nature is cyclical
P2) Time is in nature
C1) Time is cyclical

Its most odd that the strongest part of the argument is what was attacked....(not only that but based off of your argument, there is no need for words!)
