I believe that it would be even greater if there was no first cause. Existence exists, I see no reason to believe that it shouldn't have always been that way.

And hello.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Welcome, Going up.

Looking forward to having a dissociation on the "Everything that exists has a cause" premise.

Sorry Aliza I know this was directed at Going up so I don't want to steal his thunder. But the first cause argument is.

1. Everything that exists must have a cause.
2. If you follow the chain of events backwards through time, it cannot go back infinitely, so eventually you arrive at the first cause.
3. This cause must, itself, be uncaused.
4. But nothing can exist without a cause (except for God.)
5. Therefore, God exists.
