Natural Proofs for God’s Existence: Causality

Is God real or is he simply a made-up crutch for people who can’t deal with reality? I suggest that there is plenty of evidence from nature and science to show the existence of God. Let’s Start with St. Thomas Aquinas’ five Ways (or proofs) for the existence of God.

Similar to the argument from motion (nothing can move without something moving it) science also tells us all effects must have a cause. A reaction isn’t possible without an action.

The problem is that we exist. The existence of energy and matter had to be a reaction to something, but to what? When we chase creation down to its beginning we can only get to the first effect. What was the cause of this effect? This cause is what we call God.
