It's my right. The fallen angel has always been associated with light.

And it's my right to point out he nonsense.
But, all truth comes through faith.
There's some nonsense right there. faith is one of the biggest obstacles to truth.
Belief is synomical to trust, and both result in truth.
Nope. Trust is easily misplaced.
When you can know when you trust someone.
As I said, trust is separate from truth.
Not separate. Truth is the means and trust the ends.
The argument concerning infinity appears irrelevant. The essence is that a beginning is impossible.
1. Everything has a cause.
2. Time is required for anything to occur.
3. A beginning implies there is no time beforehand.
4. If there was a point where time did not exist (3) then there could not be an event to cause (2) a beginning.
5. Since there was no beginning (4) then time has always existed.
That's just gibberish.
Sorry, I don't accept premise 1, premise 2, premise 3.
I take 4 and 5 to be what you infer from your premises, so, obviously, I don't see your conclusions as necessary.
Time (chronology) is only required after the beginning of change.
"In the beginning God was"
John 1:1 In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.
That doesn't back up your claim that "Truth is the means and trust the ends." Try to post something sensible.
If an instant can exist before forever in the past, infinite time could have begun in that instant.
And infinity minus infinity can be a figure other than 0, because infinity plus any figure other than 0 is equal to infinity.
so such an instant could have existed.
Think about this a little more , to your first statement . We all should .
Figure out the reasoning . To me it is flawed .
Repeat it to yourself , just me until you understand truly what you stated .
Ok. How so?
