The 1.6% Solution
1.6% of the North American population says that there actually CAN be an infinite regress of cause. They honestly believe that this universe was created by a previous universe and that universe was created by one previous to that and so on back and back into the infinite past. Even though there is not a philosopher or scientist on the planet that believes an infinite regress of cause is possible (unless they belong to this group), this 1.6% of the population still maintains their implausible position, not because of the evidence but in spite of the evidence. They must do this or their world view will collapse.
