Nice attempt at a rescuing device.<quoted text>
Once again, you claimed that science is based on the assumption of causality. Quantum mechanics is NOT a causal theory: it is a probabilistic theory and not a causal theory. So you claim that science is based on causality is false, whether QM is a complete theory or not.
More specifically, there are actual, testable effects of causality that are violated by QM and have been tested. QM is shown to be correct in these tests and causality is not.
By *definition, every effect is caused. The *definition* of 'effect' is 'something that is caused'. The question is then whether every event is an effect. THAT is a very different question and one you have not shown to be true.
You have not shown there is one. There are other possibilities:
1) there is an infinite sequence of causes.
2) Since each effect tends to have many causes, there may be (and likely are) many 'initial' causes.
You still have to show that a *first* cause exists and that that first cause has the other characteristics of a deity: like a mind, a personality, morality, etc.
In all likelihood, the 'initial' causes are simply quantum events.
An infinite regression is not illogical. It is a definite *logical* possibility.
No, it simply destroys your whole arguments.
More specifically, every caused event (i.e, an effect) has a *physical* cause. So any initial cause is physical and not a deity.
Your argument against the First Cause so far is:
1. I don't know what it is, but I know isn't God.
2. There was a non-causal cause.
I am sorry, but you are going to have to do better than that.
The first reveals your pre-commitment to keeping God out of the picture.
The second furthers that pre-commitment by a desperate appeal to a theoretical mathematical system that varies based on who you talk to, that cannot account for certain aspects of that system, which you have then assumed proves that there is a "non-causal" cause...
