Thank you all so much! To Brian, thank you for helping me see the connection between matter and motion. Once I caught that I understood how I was asking the same question whether it was about matter or motion. To BlueCherry, thanks for the link to NoodleFood. The two podcasts were great and I've bookmarked the site so I can check out their other stuff. PS. on their main page the Simon's Cat 'The Fly' video made my day. To Seeker, you pointed out the fallacy of composition, thank you. To TheEgoist & Castle, my friend is a leader in Campus Crusade for Christ at UF, so I don't
Hi everyone, This is my first attempt at a thread/post so if I've placed it in the wrong section or this has been discussed elsewhere please correct me. A close friend of mine is an evangelical christian and we like to argue. A few weeks ago he brought up the first cause argument and I was able to corner him. His argument: -All things are created -The universe was created -god created the universe I responded by saying if god can be eternal why can't the universe? He couldn't answer the question and quickly changed the topic, but I asked myself a follow-up question on his behalf.
