Primacy of Existence for Dummies

Ever wondered why existence exists? Existence exists because it does. You can’t point to something that doesn’t exist to be the cause of existence. The existence of a consciousness cannot be the cause of existence because, If nothing exists then a consciousness cannot exist. A consciousness with nothing to be conscious of is a contradiction in terms.

This is why an ex-nihilo creationist god doesn’t exist for sure.

All ex-nihilo creationist theists, i.e. almost all theists, believe in the existence of a god to be the cause of existence. Existence of something can never be the cause of existence.

I would advice such theists to move the goal post by claiming creation wasn’t ex-nihilo.. Go on.. do it. We have something for you there too.

Meanwhile, If you like the above argument as a formal proof: Read this and this.
