Cosmological Argument Part 1

Part 1 of a pair. Tim lays out a classic argument for the existence of God, called ‘The Cosmological Argument’ — roughly, the idea that something has to explain why the world is the way it is, and that something is God. He distinguishes two versions: the Beginnings Argument, and the Modal Argument. He covers the Beginnings Argument.
