Thank you for sharing it.
I really think you nailed it.
"PROOF THAT GOD EXISTS.
According to Moses Maimonides, a Philosopher, Theologian and Medical Doctor in his book "The Guide for the Perplexed," there would be no need for a Creator if the universe was eternal, I mean without beginning or end. In other words, God would not exist. However, if the universe did have a beginning, God by necessity would exist.
From Abraham and until Aristotle God existed only for the pious who could exercise faith. For Cosmologists God had only been a probability; extremely small nevertheless a probability. At the time of Aristotle that small probability had been erased as Aristotle discovered that the universe was eternal; no beginning and no end. The pious went on with their faith but as Science was concerned, the non-existence of God had been proved.
The line of thought that God's existence was depending on the universe having had a beginning lasted from about 330 BCE with Aristotle and until 1922 ACE with Georges Lemaitre a Catholic priest who brought the news about the Big Bang to the whole world as the beginning of the universe.
Cosmologists throughout the world had to adopt Lemaitre's discovery as the nearest approach to the truth they had ever achieved. Now, since the universe had indeed a beginning, a proof had been established for the existence of God, blessed be He.
