The Kalām cosmological argument is a variation of the cosmological argument that argues for the existence of a first cause for the universe, and the existence of a god. Its origins can be traced to medieval Jewish, Christian and Muslim thinkers, but most directly to Islamic theologians of the Kalām tradition.1 Its historic proponents include John Philoponus, Al-Kindi, Saadia Gaon, Al-Ghazali, and St. Bonaventure. William Lane Craig revived interest in the Kalām cosmological argument with his 1979 publication of a book of the same name.
The Kalam Cosmological Argument is this (simply): Everything that has a beginning of existence has a cause of existence. The universe has a beginning of existence. Therefore the universe has a cause of existence.
Wikipedia tells me that Rav Saadia wrote this argument. Can anyone tell me where it is in the Hebrew version?
