Re: Proof of Creation
Since the world exists, it had to have been created.
Since the creator exists he/she/it had to have been created.

Re: Proof of Creation
Not if this creator was absolutely simple.
Simple?
Surely it is simpler to assume the creation of that which we know exists (i.e. the universe) without invoking extra pre-creation entities which are themselve unexplained and wholly unevidenced. Why explain that which we know exists in terms of that which we have no reason to believe exists.
That is simplicity.
