How would you address the slightly different formulation, "Everything that happens has a cause"?

About this sentence from the third paragraph:

PaulK writes:

For everything that exists at that moment of time there is no prior state when it did not exist, and if a cause is needed it is not needed to bring the object into existence, for that simple reason that it already exists.

You're talking about the first moment in time, so shouldn't the reason why no cause is needed be that there was no prior time for a cause to operate?

Edited by Admin, : Remove manual sig.
