Here is the third and final instalment of the critically acclaimed philosophical trilogy looking at criticising the Kalam Cosmological Argument. In this video, I look to continue my commentary and then go back to look at William Lane Craig’s pitiful defence of the idea that God could “choose to create”, “make a decision ” and “use free will” in a tenseless and timeless scenario.

He has reformulated the KCA to a more modest format and then concedes that he can’t use inductive arguments to defend the first premise: that they are mere metaphysical assertions.
Anyway, see what you think:
