Cold, hard logic dictates that the cause of nature cannot be natural if we are to avoid the circular fallacy. Logic dictates, therefore, that the cause of nature must be not-natural (i.e., supernatural)
Sean Carroll’s thoughtful defense of naturalism is insufficient to avoid a beginning to the universe with its theological implications. Here, Kirk Durston shows that the logical implication of a beginning to nature is that there is an eternal, supernatural Creator.
Just as it is impossible to count down through the negative integers from minus infinty to zero, so it is impossible in real time, for time t to run from minus infinity to plus infinity. The real past, therefore, must have a beginning, exactly as empirical science suggests.
