But how did gravity exist in the first place? Who put it there?

It seems as if John Lennox is quite a sloppy thinker. Why specifically a "who"? Why not a "what" or "lots of who's" or lots of "what's"? I mean, the Cango caves were formed by lots of natural processes. Lots of "what's". No "who's" involved anywhere.

If this is philosophy, then philosophy ought to be rejected. "Who put it there?" is just question begging And insisting that there must be a "creative force" is the same kind of non-argument.

If some God or Gods exist, who put those Gods there? And those? And those? You're right, it's question begging and a non-argument. If philosophers do that, then philosophy ought to be rejected.
