11 The Borde–Guth–Vilenkin theorem is now widely accepted by cosmologists. As a result, theorists who would avert the beginning of the universe are forced to deny the single assumption of that theorem: that the universe’s history has been on average one of cosmic expansion. Any universe that meets this condition cannot be extrapolated into the infinite past. 12 Thus we appear to have strong empirical confirmation of the conclusion to which philosophical argument led us: the universe began to exist.
Not at all. 13 Let us return, then, to the case of an endless series of praise events. Unlike a series of ten, there will never be a time at which all the events in an endless series of future events have been actualized. Does this imply that “none” is 26 ■ Debating Christian Theism the correct answer to the question about the number of future praise events? It does not. As long as each of those future events is definite and discrete and determined to happen, they can be placed in one-to-one correspondence with the natural numbers, and their number must be ℵ0 (the first transfinite cardinal number).
The salient points are these. In the first place, the series of praises, each of which will be said, is not growing since each of its members has yet to occur. Even when the first of those praises is said, the series of future praises will still not be growing. Instead (if the passage of time is real), it is the series of praises that have been said that will begin having members added to it. In the second place, there need be nothing “indefinite” about a series of future events. To see this, suppose that God has exercised his supreme power in such a way as to determine that a single angel—Gabriel, say—will speak certain words of praise at regular intervals forever.
