bzrd here: In the absence of matter, time and space do not exist. Why can't the universe be self-caused? Because [in your words]the causal law does not apply. Again, it is ironic, [perhaps even apropos?] that the materialist philosophy is reducible to faith in "nothing"..... ----------- I don't see what you mean here. If the causal law doesn't apply, anything is fair game. Cause and effect relationships are absent, thus I see no reason why the universe could not come into being all by itself. There is just as much faith (if not more, because of parsimony) in God creating the universe than in the universe coming into being by itself.
