“The fact that our best scientific theory of the origin and evolution of the universe supports a self-caused universe is much more likely on naturalism than on theism, and thus provides very strong evidence for naturalism over theism.”

I believe the quote can be attributed to the editor Paul Draper, who I had the pleasure to have as a professor in the early days of my philosophical journey. It was through his class in philosophy of religion that I first began to understand the cosmological argument.
So I’m interested in continuing the conversation, and thought this quote, and even the published debate, which includes an exchange between Draper and Plantinga, would rekindle the topic.
