Primal Cause Revisited

A discussion has been opened on this meditation. To contribute further to the discussion, please use the Contact form

One of the arguments for the existence of god is a perceived need for a primal cause. Now in my view, a primal cause is unnecessary and when used in conjunction with a proof for the existence of god the creator, it only begs the question "What was the primal cause of God?"

Is it possible to identify a possible primal cause that is not a "supreme being," and does not require a primal cause itself?

One formulation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics is:

"All processes manifest a tendency toward decay and disintegration, with a net increase in what is called the entropy, or state of randomness or disorder, of the system."

Suppose that this theory (all scientific laws are really theories) is indeed an absolute LAW which exists independently of time and space.

Then this absolute LAW existing in nothingness can be viewed as existing in a state of perfect order. To fulfill the law's own requirements, something is needed so as to bring disorder into the system. And thus, the Second Law of Thermodynamics is the primal cause of the big bang and everything.

Now as I stated at the beginning, I don't need a primal cause, but for those who do, this argument is far simpler, thus more probable, than postulating an omniscient all-powerful entity as a primal cause.

If anyone wants to then take the Second Law of Thermodynamics and call it God and worship it, I will not criticize. I will just refer to that person as an engineer.
