We don't need to be. That's like saying that you see someone on the road covered with blood, obviously crushed by a car running over him. You didn't see it happen, but from the evidence, you know it did.

If God does not require a cause, then why does all the matter form which the universe is made up require a cause? You may as well have that as the first cause. But something powerful enough to create the universe with such ease cannot be simpler than its creation, so the thought of God not requiring a cause is no less illogical anyway.

We kill people who kill people to show others that killing is wrong.
