  • St. Thomas Aquinas' Second Way: The Argument of Causality
  • by Gillian Baetiong
  • St. Thomas Aquinas concluded that no object creates itself,
  • and nothing can be the cause of itself.
  • He believed that there was an "uncaused first cause" who started all of creation and its existence.
  • That "uncaused first cause" is said to be God.
  • If something is caused, it has to have been caused by something else
  • One cause creates a ripple effect of causes, but there can not be an endless string of objects causing other objects to exist.
  • The universe is not eternal.
  • It has a beginning...
  • ...and it will have an end.
