    There are only three possible explanations for anything that exists now: it is self-created, it is eternal, or it is created by something that is eternal.

    Self-creation is a logical impossibility. It violates a fundamental principle of truth and science: the law of noncontradiction.

    In contrast to self-creation there is the idea of self-existence, or the theological concept of aseity, or independent existence.

    The law of causality does not say that everything has to have a cause.  It says that every “effect” must have an antecedent cause. 

    God is not an effect.  God has the power of being within Himself that is not derived from something outside of Himself. Self-existence.
