(Note I have already talked about it in previous posts, such as here, but will introduce it anew.)
This is a philosophical/logical argument, whose premises are based on evidence from both science and philosophy. It is set up as a syllogism, so if the first two premises are true, the conclusion logically follows. The syllogism goes like this:
- Everything that comes into being has a cause.
- The universe came into being.
- Therefore, the universe has a cause.
