The Argument of the First Cause – “Why I Am Not A Christian” – Bertrand Russell

November 16th, 2010 · No Comments · Atheism, Philosophy, Religion

I read John Stuart Mill’s Autobiography, and I there found this sentence:

“My father taught me that the question ‘Who made me?’ cannot be answered, since it immediately suggests the further question `Who made god?’”

That very simple sentence showed me, as I still think, the fallacy in the argument of the First Cause. If everything must have a cause, then God must have a cause.
