Big Bang Was Caused

MYTH
The beginning of the universe was uncaused

Atheists claim that the Big Bang was uncaused. They reason that causal priority implies temporal priority, there was no time before the Big Bang, and thus the Big Bang was uncaused. This claim is false. God is causally, not temporally, prior to the Big Bang [1] and His causing the universe to begin was co-incident with its beginning to exist. The assumption that causal priority implies temporal priority is unjustified.
