So far I have got:

Kant
- Kant argues that God is not logically necessary. We need an argument for God's possibility, not necessity.
-If God is modally necessary (something that exists in all possible worlds), but not logically necessary, then he might not have existed in any world.
-This makes him logically contingent which doesn't satisfy the cosmological argument.
-The idea of there being a necessary being is incoherent. our knowledge is limited to the phenomenal world.

Hume
-We can know about the causes in the universe, but this doesn't mean we can know the overall cause of the whole universe.

Does anyone know the criticisms of the cosmological argument from Kenny and Hawkings?

Thank you
