For this thread:
God - A being that had the intention and ability to create our universe
We - The universe we reside in
For this experiment, let's assume that our universe was caused by an infinite regress. That means that it was caused by an ever-lasting chain of causes and effects.
This implies that there were an infinite amount of causes, prior to the creation of our universe.
Is it possible that one of those causes was a being setting into motion a chain of events that would create our universe?
I'm trying to explain this as well as I can, and I know I'm not doing it very eloquently, so I'll try to simplify it:
There were an infinite amount of possibilities for a "god" to step into the infinite regress that caused our universe to be born. Given an infinite amount of possibilities, does that mean that there is a sure chance we were created by a "god"?
Of course, none of this applies if you subscribe to acausality.
I'm not pushing this as an argument for theism - I just want to see some reactions to this idea I've been playing with.
