The question “who made God?” is not a knock-down refutation to the cosmological argument. Skeptics need to stop pretending that it is.

One of the most astonishing facts that scientists have discovered over the last 100 years is that all physical reality began to exist in the finite past. Before big bang cosmology, scientists thought that the universe existed eternally.
While there are still a few Christians who get a little squeamish about the Big Bang theory, I like to tell them that the Big Bang is your friend, not an enemy. Far from disproving the existence of God, the theory shows that all space, time and matter began to exist. If that’s the case, then the required cause of space, time and matter can’t depend on space, time and matter.
Let that sink in a little. What would fit the description of a spaceless, timeless, immaterial cause? That sounds a little suspicious…
