I cant stay awake
Also, we need to stop using this slang, it trivializes the issues in my opinion
The meme terms do more harm than good

The Protestant work ethic and it's consequences have been a disaster for the human race.

How long before you think he mentions Ben Shapiro and the intellectual dark web.

Who here knows about the aristotelian proof for god's existence?
What about them?
Just wanted to understand it a little better
I'm researching aquinas' arguments because I'm an atheist
and I'm just looking for proof otherwise
What I'm having trouble with here
Even though it is high grade, even for most Thomists, Metaphysics ought to be a must-read for any apologist.
Is understanding why the "god" in a sustaining series of causes isn't also subject to an infinite regress
Like I understand that there's a difference between linear and hierarchical causes
But what gives the "unmoved mover"different qualities here
The Angelic Doctor utilized Aristotelian proofs constantly. I'd really recommend getting into the foundations via Metaphysics. But, to get to your point, the primary issue that Aristotle posits depends also on the nature of substances, you know. Like the nature of the natural world via one that isn't natural and is not bound by natural law, but instead is the promulgator of said law.
So the fact that it exists outside of natural law is the reason it cannot itself be caused?
Well, Aristotle posited that as a first mover, in this case, God, He is outside "natural impulse" and is therefore good.
Unless of course even He is a secondary "mover" and someone was even above Him.
The primary aim to grasp is the necessity of the mover itself.
And just to clear up the jargon there, being outside "natural impulse" means that he is not subject to the law that everything must have a cause?
And i've heard people use the term "good" in theology but I'm not sure what it means in that context
