Responding to those who claims that a conflict exists between affirming the conclusions of Burhan Al-Tatbiq, and belief in Allah Most High's Omniscience.
Discussing Burhan Al-Tatbiq for the impossibility of Tasalsul, and addressing the objections raised by those who champion Georg Cantor's transfinite set theory.
Tasalsul is the belief that the present moment is preceded by an infinite number of past events. In proving the existence of God, Imam Al-Ghazali offers three arguments for the impossibility of this belief.
You claim that it is impossible for the world to be beginningless, because Tasalsul is impossible. But shouldn’t this then also mean that it is impossible for God to be beginningless?
Tasalsul is the belief that time is beginningless. Meaning: that the present is preceded by an infinite number of past events. It is impossible due to its being contradictory.
