Why The Kalam Cosmological Argument Is Incompatible With Libertarian Free Will (Meme Edition)

I've argued before that the Kalam Cosmological Argument is incompatible with libertarian free will, but it requires a few assumptions. First it must be the case that thoughts are not merely events but are things that pop into existence. Second, to say the "agent" is the cause of its thought requires an agent to somehow be distinct from its consciousness, such that it can make decisions prior to consciousness. For example, if an agent causes its thoughts it can't do so consciously, because the cause would be prior to the thought, which is the consciousness. I fail to see how an agent can have any control over such an unconscious experience. I created this meme to illustrate the problem.

The Principle Of Sufficient Reason: Why Even God Cannot Satisfy Its Requirements (Meme Edition)

Appealing to the principle of sufficient reason is something almost all theists do. I created a meme years ago on why Munchhausen's Trilemma makes the PSR impossible to adhere to. Realizing that version was too big, I've now created a more social media friendly version. Feel free to download this and upload to your social media.

Something From Nothing: Why Almost Everyone Gets The Big Bang Wrong (Including Atheists) Meme Edition!

I created an infograph years ago on why almost everyone gets the big bang wrong but realized it was too big for social media, and so I created a more meme friendly version. This topic is one of my biggest pet peeves because it allows the theist to make claims that just aren't true, especially regarding cosmological arguments.
