If we accept the following premises:
1: An event (such as a Big Bang) happened. (I use the phrase Big Bang, because many are familiar with that as the "Initial Cause", but this theory would necessarily utilize a different understanding in that regard) 2: Every event necessarily causes some other event 3: Identical events yield identical causes
Is it logically valid to state that an event (A), such as the Big Bang, necessarily caused events B, C, D... and necessarily caused the conditions (events) extant at this very point in time- And that said series of events could eventually lead to an event (and associated conditions) necessary for the event which caused the initial event (A) (such as the Big Bang). Thus this event (A1) will be identical to the earlier event (A), and thus yield an identical series of causes and events, necessarily causing another identical event (A2). So on.. so on...
Issues of fundamental physics aside, is the above valid? My question stems from the fact that this seems like a very appealing and intuitive model of existence, but I have not seen it discussed in any of my classes. I assume that may be due to some obvious problem with the logic that I am missing.
Also, if anyone knows of a good text to deal with the question, I would love to read it.
Thanks in advance.
