Craig and the BGV Theorem

Filed under: Arguments for God's Existence,Natural Theology,Politics — camcintosh @ 3:49 pm

Those familiar with William Lane Craig’s work on the kalam cosmological argument will know that since 2006 or so he has appealed to the Borde-Guth-Vilenkin theorem, published in 2003, as support for the premise that the universe began to exist.

Perhaps because the theorem seems to lend especially powerful support to the premise, Craig’s use of it has been embroiled in controversy. There has been no shortage of cyberpunk sec-web goonies eager to torpedo Craig’s scholarly integrity and arguments by questioning the accuracy of his presentation of the BGV theorem. If you have stood witness to this controversy, this is very significant.
