A Defence of the Cosmological Argument for God's Non-existence

(p.232) IX A Defence of the Cosmological Argument for God's Non-existence
Theism, Atheism, and Big Bang Cosmology

Quentin Smith

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues in defence of the cosmological argument about God's non-existence. It proposes a coherent and plausible Big Bang cosmology that is better justified and is capable of standing up to the challenge of the theistic interpretation. It explains that the objective of the argument is to further establish that Big Bang cosmology is actually inconsistent with theism, and argues that if Big Bang cosmology is true, then God does not exist.

Keywords:   non-existence of God, Big Bang cosmology, theism, cosmological arguments, cosmology
