Kalam Cosmological Argument for God

What do you think of this as an argument for a god (not specifically for the Christian God)?:

This has brought newfound support for an argument known as the kalam cosmological argument, popularized today by philosopher William Lane Craig (see Craig and Sinclair, KCA, 101–201). It has three premises:

1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause.
2. The universe began to exist.
3. Therefore, the universe has a cause.

I’ve personally never liked it when suggested as “proof” of God, but I do see it a compelling argument that something beyond materialism is likely.

You?
