dc.description.abstractYishai Cohen raises three related objections to the kalam cosmological argument. Firstly, Cohen argues that, if the argument against the possibility of an actual infinite, which is used to support the kalam cosmological argument, is sound, then a predetermined endless future must also be impossible. Secondly, Cohen argues that the possibility of a predetermined endless future entails the possibility of an actual infinite. Finally, Cohen maintains that Robert C. Koons' Grim Reaper paradox shows that a predetermined endless future is impossible. I intend to show that Cohen's three arguments are not sound and that the possibility of an endless future is not a thorn in the kalam cosmological argument.
