Criticisms of First Cause Argument


  • Theory of Quantum Physics suggests randomness and unpredictability- things can come from nothing without any apparent reason.




  • Because everything we see has a cause does not mean everything needs a cause or everything needs the same cause.




  • Why can’t the universe be infinite? No reason why Universe cannot have always existed. No more unbelievable than it just came into existence out of nothing.




  • Argument contradicts itself. It says that everything must have a cause, and then it says that there must have been a first cause which had no cause. This is contradiction.




  • Requires leap of faith to suggest first cause is God.
