is the universe eternal

Isn’t the universe eternal? (Thus doing away with the need for a creator).

Everything with a beginning requires a cause. This is the Law of Causation, without which, science would be impossible. Atheism has therefore relied on the premise that the universe is eternal (without beginning), and therefore does not require a creator….no origin, no Originator. But modern physics (including Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity) declare that the universe DID have a beginning.
