Premise 1: All (purposed) actions are prompted by need, want, or desire.
Premise 2: A perfect immutable being has no needs, wants or desire.
Premise 3: God is a being as described by premise 2.
Premise 4: Creation would have been the (purposed) action of the creator.
Premise 5: The universe exists.
From P 1 & 2: God does not need, want, or desire anything.
Conclusion: the universe couldn’t have been created.
If god is perfect and immutable, change is impossible, therefore creation is impossible (not to mention miracles and prayer). Assuming the argument is valid, which I think it is, which of the premises (if any) are wrong? In other words, is the argument also sound?
And if the argument is sound, then there is a contradiction between believing in the existence of god and that of the universe. Since we know the universe exists, god can’t.
(Note: I have clarified the argument by including “purposed”. I think it went without saying that I was referring to deliberate acts of conscious beings but based on the discussion below it was necessary to clarify.)
