Re: CA: Cosmological Argument for the Existence of God

Well, 4 only gets you some kind of "unmoved mover"? How do you go from there - even granting the validity of 3 - to a personal type of "God"?

Re: against Physicalism

Moreso, when it comes to physicalism of mind, both pan-psychic schemes and quantum schemes would also be "physicalist" ones then, according to your friend's def - since both pan-psychic materials and quantum ones are extended in 3-d (at least) spaces? (Maybe correctable to "has extension in a 3-d Ne...
