2) The universe (all beings bounded by time) began to exist.

3) Therefore, the universe had a cause by some one personal.

Therefore if the universe is beginningless, then an infinite duration of past history has preceded the present day. That causes a problem, because if the past precedes the present point, then that point will never be reached. But the present has obviously been reached, so the universe can't be beginningless-it must have a beginning.

All of this...
