I understand the concept. I disagree. Time is not a result of matter in motion. It is an independent coordinate like space is. We would not say that space is a result of matter in motion. The same holds for time.<quoted text>
Sometimes I hate myself for being so patient with faithful people who behave like theists of talking serpents. But let me try again: 1. Time cannot have a beginning before matter is in motion as time is an accident of motion. Got it?
I would agree. For 'A' to be caused by 'B' means that 'A' happens after 'B' in time.Next:
2. There is no such a thing as something that causes itself to exist.
OK, with the change you made below, I would agree with this also.Something must exist to cause anything and if it already exists it does need to cause itself over.
But you are still ignoring my point. I agree that time did not cause itself. OK? But my claim is that time is uncaused. It didn't cause itself because NOTHING caused it.Now, have mercy on yourself and don't ask this question again.
Do you see the difference?
