There are, as far as I can see, only three possible scenarios: Either A.) The cosmos is the result of an infinite regress of previous finite occurrences (This event was caused by a previous event, which was caused by a previous event, ad infinitum). B.) The cosmos began to exist but was not created. C.) The cosmos began to exist and was created by a first cause which exists in eternity as an eternal entity. Now which of these makes the most sense? The question is, as far as I'm concerned, a metaphysical one which relies on logical inference rather than empirical solutions.
