Sartre's False Cosmological Argument Against God

Jean Paul Sartre's cosmological "disproof" of God is false. The first premise is that God is self-caused. A false conclusion comes from a false premise. God is not self-caused; He is defined as uncaused. It is not special pleading to say that God is uncaused, as the kalam cosmological argument demonstrates.
