Apologists then recognize a necessary consequence of God’s independence from a dimension of duration: God is unchanging. Which leads to an inconsistency that can be laid out in a syllogism, much like the cosmological argument itself.
- Premise 1: Everyone that acts, changes from a state of inaction to action.
- Premise 2: If there is a creator of the universe, that creator acted when creating the universe.
- Conclusion: Therefore, if a creator of the universe exists, that creator changed.
The apologist is left arguing for a God with attributes in conflict with the implications of their argument.
