Kalam cosmological argument (part 2)

Valid

Formal Argument

Premises

P1. The universe has a cause

P2. If the universe has a cause, then an uncaused, personal Creator of the universe exists who without the universe is beginningless, changeless, immaterial, timeless, spaceless and enormously powe

Conclusions

C1. An uncaused, personal Creator of the universe exists, who without the universe is beginningless, changeless, immaterial, timeless, spaceless and infinitely powerful

C2. God 4 exists


Premises are not true, so this argument is not sound.

This argument is trivial because second premise already assumes the conclusion. But this assumption is not correct, because the cause of the universe could be something other than God.
