Three possible flaws in the Kalam cosmological argument are discussed:
1) If God is the only object accommodated by the set of things that do not begin to exist, then the Kalam argument has the effect (if not the intention) of begging the question.
2) The logic regarding the impossibility of an actual infinity disproves the existence of an actually infinite God.
3) Since the universe is not a member of itself, the Kalam argument is illogically comparing apples and oranges.
