Thomas Aquinas and the First Mover Argument

Some things in the universe are in motion. You may be, your heart certainly is, the birds in the sky and the cars on the road are. But anything in motion must have been caused to move: nothing can move itself spontaneously without something else moving it.

Learn about the brilliant medieval scholar St. Thomas Aquinas' and his argument for God as the first cause of everything.
