Video: Argument from Contingency


In this creative video, philosopher Josh Rasmussen presents the following version of the argument from contingency:

1. Something exists
2. Everything either (1) depends on something beyond itself, or (2) does not.
3. Whatever is purely contingent depends on something beyond itself.

Conclusion: Something cannot fail to exist.

This is an excellent presentation!  

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
