The Argument from Efficient Cause: There is an efficient cause for everything; nothing can be the efficient cause of itself.
Clearly nobody has told this lecturer (and unfortuantely his students wouldn't have learn't it either) that the words some things and everything don't have the same meaning.
[I shouldn't say that isn't the only issue with that page. I noticed about 33 elementary mistakes and misunderstandings. I can't claim to have seen them all.]
