I know this is a bit weird, but for some reason amongst the 5 ways or 5 proofs for God’s existence, the first one is the most difficult one for me to understand. I have a few questions that come to mind when reading about the argument.
- Why is it that a hierarchical series of “movers” can’t be infinite? I feel like an infinite number of hierarchical movers could be possible similar to how linear movers can also be infinite. Why exactly do we need pure actuality for this?
- How could God be pure actuality? If Christianity believes that God became man, then wouldn’t that mean that God went from potentially man to actually man, thus making him NOT pure actuality?
- What about God creating? Wouldn’t God be going from potentially creating to actually creating?
PS: I am NOT an expert in philosophy. If I had made an error in reasoning, please tell me. Thanks in advanced!
