Ep #75 - Does the CAUSE of the Universe LISTEN to PRAYERS? (ft. Asher John)
Show Notes

Does quantum mechanics lend a escape hatch away from the cause of the universe? Just as the axe pre-existed in the form of iron and wood couldn't the universe have pre-existed in some form before the Big Bang? If everything must have a cause why must God be excluded? To answer these many other common objections to the Kalam Cosmological Argument Asher John of The Carpenter's Desk join us!

SAFT Apologetics stands for Seeking Answers Finding Truth and was formed off inspiration from the late Nabeel Qureshi’s autobiography that captured his life journey where he followed truth where it led him. We too aim to be a beacon emulating his life’s commitment towards following truth wherever it leads us.
