Cosmological Arguments generally argue for the existence for a First Mover, an Uncaused Cause. They often rely on a premise that rejects the possibility of an infinite sequence of past events.1 But what else can we do with such a premise?
Now that you’re reading this post, let me ask you a few questions. Did you choose to read it? If so, did you choose to choose to read it? If so, did you choose to choose to choose to read it? If an infinite sequence of past events (choices, in this case) is impossible, it follows that you must have done something at some stage without choosing to do so. And this (or maybe a previous event you had no involvement in) was the ultimate cause of your choice to read.
Naturally the above reasoning applies not only to your “choice” (or otherwise) to read this blog, but to every single “choice” you could ever make.
1. As a mathematician, I find such premises very interesting indeed, but a more thorough discussion will wait until a later post.
