This dousche equates me with JP on his blog and erases my comment disputing it.
I am not the same as JP because
1) I accept modern science evolution and and the big bang without a problem. JP does not.
2) I don't promote Intelligent Design. JP does.
3) My views on politics and society are that of a mainstream conservative Republican. JP I can't speak for. JP said on his blog that he voted for Obama.
Next, I am going to criticize Larry's post where this all occurred. For the record, I only call Larry a dousche for making the post equating me with JP and not letting me answer. I do not call Larry a dousche for anything else he wrote.
Larry wrote a post bashing metaphysics. I asked him if he understood the cosmological argument. Larry might be a man of science, but when it comes to metaphysics, it would seem that Larry can use a class on it before he bashes the Cosmological Argument. Larry can repeat and satirize but he's not understanding it.
Now how the Cosmological Argument handles the issue of infinite regress is easy. An infinite chain of events is not possible due to the lack of a first cause. So in order for anything to be possible, there has to be an uncaused cause, and this we call God.
