Science Agrees with the Bible: The Universe Began to Exist

by J. Warner Wallace at

If we are living in a universe with a beginning, the Principle of Causality points to a Creator God. Science is predicated on the causal relationships described in the Principle of Causality. Every effect has a cause; everything that begins, changes, is finite or limited has a cause. The universe, if it began to exist, is changing over time, and is not infinitely old, requires an adequate cause to explain its origin. The Cosmological Argument for God’s existence is grounded in the Principle of Causality:

(1) The Universe Began to Exist
(Confirmed by the scientific evidence)

(2) Anything That Has a Beginning Must Be Caused By Something Else
(Affirmed by the Principal of Causality)

(3) Therefore, the Universe Must Have a Cause
(Inferred from the Principal of Causality)

(4) The First Cause Must Be Eternal and Uncaused
(Declared by definition)

(5) The Cause is God
(Offered as the most reasonable uncaused first cause)

While several of these premises must be examined more completely, in today’s post, I’d like to review the classic evidence supporting the first claim: the universe began to exist.
