No. I’m simply saying that a “coming-into-being” change is distinct from other kinds of changes, and that you aren’t taking into account this difference.
I am. I’m suggesting that your assertion is in error.
Glad you agree, 'cause you really are making an error of category.
As long as your assertion of a ‘point’ isn’t an assertion of a ‘point in time.’
Please familiarize yourself with Aristotle’s Physics, especially his discussion of the difference between ‘accidental’ and ‘substantial’ change.
That’s why I specified that ‘prior’ speaks existentially, not chronologically…
If God is ‘subjected’ to time, then God does not have power over time. That would mean that God is not omnipotent. But, that’s part of the definition of ‘God’. Therefore, your assertions contradict the definition of God; subsequently, we reject your argument, since it contradicts the definitions from which it starts.
Pardon? It seems you misunderstand. God is the single (i.e., only) uncaused cause.
