If the word “god” in your question is replaced by “world,” then it seems that creationism is inevitable. And what happened before there was time? Or should it always be there, because no consistency is possible without it? God is not known, and very little is known about him. But what if without it, not only consistency, but also other abstract concepts are impossible? In language, you can express a lot of things that are logically literate, but completely unthinkable in images. But many human experiences are completely unspeakable in language. There is a point of view in philosophy that there are no philosophical problems, but only the inability of language to reflect reality. But the language easily immerses us in the wilds of abstract constructions.
This is a very popular question, and you can answer it in the most elementary way-just by looking at the Explanatory Dictionary. But practice shows that such an answer never suits those who ask this question. Perhaps because it is supposed to confuse believers, but in fact it turns out that the problem is that those who ask such questions do not understand the meaning of the words they use.
Ask “who created God?” “it's like first suggesting that 'a million' is the largest number in the world, and then asking, ' what number is greater than a million?' God is the First Cause of everything – just by definition. You can assume that It does not exist – you can argue about this and there is at least some logic in this. But asking who created God is pointless.
A little more detail we reflect on this topic in the framework of one of the programs of the project “5 questions”. Welcome to view:
“God was eaten by a God-eating Cat. Now, can you prove that there is no God-eating Cat?
– A God-eating cat was eaten by a Cat-fighting cats-ed. And now prove that there is no Cat-God-eating cats-food?
This cycle of assumptions is a typical vicious circle. In order not to do this, you need to use a Rikkam razor-this is a principle that says something like the following: “Multiplicity should never be assumed unnecessarily… [but] everything that can be explained from the difference of matters on a number of grounds — it can be explained equally well or even better with the help of one reason” – or: “What can be explained by less, should not be expressed by more” – that is, do not complicate.
If you try to answer this question, you will inevitably come to the conclusion that no one created God except man. And God is not what a believer thinks he is. And if you look for the answer to what then is God-it all comes down to a variety of assumptions. There is a scientific concept of the noosphere, there are problems of the origin of life on earth, which scientists are looking for. But the gods and God with people are much longer than scientific achievements, which still need to be used correctly. God is an ancient paradigm that explains the origin and essence of various phenomena. When a phenomenon or event finds at least some explanation, it becomes easier for a person to navigate the world around him, it is easier to live.
I believe there are several questions, such as the one given, that could be considered back in school to create an idea of logic. There are only a few of them, three or five questions that people mistake for a sort of exposure of faith. In fact, these are classic paradoxes that all people should be able to consider and understand. The word “God” in them, in fact, is not necessary at all.
So, at least three questions:
How God came into being
Where is God located
Can God create a stone that He can't lift
All three questions have answers (and not allegorical ones).
Your question is the first one.
The concept of “originated” implies time and space. So we turn to physics. The concepts of time and space are properties of our world. The question of time and space outside our world does not make sense. If time and space have arisen, then the concept of “before time and outside space” does not make sense. That is, if you enter the question of God who created time and space, then all questions like – when did He create, what was before the creation, what was before (before – that is, time!) They don't make sense.
You can do it without God. Suppose that matter is eternal. Question: How did matter arise? Do you understand that the question doesn't make sense? But, of course, you can ask atheists in contact – how did matter arise, where did it arise (after all, it needs a place to settle down when it arises)?
Therefore, either exclude from the question the concept of “God “(which is outside of time and space) or the implied concept of “before God” (in time and/or space).
Another version of the question:
If God created the universe, who created God? How did the explosion come to create the universe out of nothing, if there can be no explosion out of nothing?
The question is logically contradictory, based on the simplest definition of God as the First Cause of all things. No one created It. It has always been there, and that is why It is the Root Cause. Here even the term “always” is not quite appropriate, because time, along with eternity, was also created by God. For the same reason, any characterization of God is somewhat arbitrary – the words we use to describe His reality are also created, not original.
In short, only “There is a God” can be said about God with maximum accuracy. In the Bible It is presented as such: “I am who I Am.”
The problem here is not to find the answer, but that the question itself is asked unwisely. Such a logical chain (who created whom) presupposes the existence of time, while time exists only in the material world as an attribute of something changing. Before God created the material world, there was no time and could not be, so at this creation, the logical chain of “who created whom” must end.
If you are talking about the God of the Abrahamic religions, then He has always been and always will be.
That is, he did not appear from anywhere.
It is difficult for us to imagine this, but for him there is no concept of time, space, finiteness at all. He's working on it.
Bogov has always been created by the mind of a person who does not want to earn an honest living like everyone else, but wants to parasitize the body of society, selling it services that it does not need.
GOD is the house where the rational consciousness of dead people is settled. It can only exist in the minds of living people if people believe in it. In this way, God is created and should be created by living people. Otherwise, the deceased will have nowhere to live and will become homeless. If you don't want your dead to be left homeless, you MUST believe that there is a GOD.
Existence itself belongs to the essence of God, existence as such exists forever and ever – and in a variety of forms generates and regenerates itself – and, from the point of view of each subjective mind that has arisen in a given Universe, the objective mind that has generated this subjective cosmos appears to the subject as God.
In short, God is the creator of Himself.
The fact that you “delete” God will not change anything.
What remains is matter that, according to you, must have a root cause. And what is the root cause?
sophistry is terrible.
No, monsieur, the religion in this respect is simple. There has always been a God.
if this interpretation does not suit you , then you join the ranks of agnostics and can safely agree in any religion and deities)
The question is abstract, and the answer will be the same. In the sense of ” Any physical theory… it is just a hypothesis that cannot be proved. ” St. Hawking. So here's my theory, not all of it, but only the answers to your questions. Being, as a way of existence of the world, cannot be created, as well as God – they are absolute, i.e. they are not dependent on anything, they are a thing in itself. Our universe is another matter, and its existence can be called recursion, i.e. this phenomenon is constantly created, initiated just by God. “The Big Bang can be considered the beginning of time, in the sense that earlier times are simple… not defined. ” St. Hawking. I believe that B. V. is just a convention, a metaphor for the next “creation” of our world. What it's really like, we'll never know. And our world is created every time for a specific purpose, “under the mind”, it is conditioned by this and cannot be otherwise, but this is already a moot point. And because of recursion, our world can't have the crazy dimensions that we attribute to it. We observe all the wonders of deep space at the borders of our world, in the zone of formation of its matter. Well, the observed must be called and defined somehow, hence all these fairy tales about Black holes, singularities and so on.�
“In the final work of the late theoretical physicist (St. Hawking), it is said that the process of expansion of outer space has clearly stopped, and the universe has reached its maximum size. In the last years of his life, the researcher was convinced of the existence of a boundary beyond which the universe ends. And beyond this border, they say, is an absolute void, in which there is no light, no matter, no space, or even time.” Here he was wrong, emptiness cannot be absolute, outside our Universe there is ABSOLUTE Being (whatever you want to call it, ether, apeiron, nothing changes from this. I call it “primal matter”). So God is a FUNCTION of this absolute thing, it is not an object, not a subject, much less a thinking being. This is one of the PROPERTIES of the absolute. Which constantly creates our world. Perhaps this is a necessary condition for the absoluteness of the World, here you can fantasize. “Unfortunately, the human mind cannot fully comprehend the concept of such emptiness, but we can make assumptions about what it is and what laws it obeys.”
“The scientist suggested that there were a great many Big bangs, they all happened simultaneously, and each of them gave rise to a separate world.” – here Hawking is also wrong, and specifically in the fact that an infinity of separate worlds “happened simultaneously”. We may think so, but given the (hypothetical) properties of the absolute-the absence of time – for us, the time between the creation of universes may seem like an instant, or maybe billions of years, the absolute doesn't care. In general, my theory is set out in the book “The Theory of everything that does not exist”, it is available in the networks, there it is all in detail. (By the way, it can be used to explain almost all the mysteries of our world)…
Since childhood, I have always worried about this question, but if you start to get into this jungle, and even more so with too young thinking, and usually through denial, or thinking that there is a beginning and an end, then consciousness begins to collapse… It's not ready for this!
For example, I remember when the magazine “Young Technician” was published, there in an article the moment of the Lord's descent on Mount Sinai was described in modern language. The article dealt quite seriously with this moment with modern thinking. Clouds of smoke, thunder, lightning and for some reason no one can go in except Moses (possibly radiation). In other words-a description of the landing on the mountain of a spaceship (this was the conclusion in the article))!!!
I was wondering:
Many icons (located in the Vatican) depict people flying through the sky in certain capsules, or hovering objects from which light goes to the saints, etc…
Further reasoning on this topic (in childhood and youth) you begin to wonder, but who are the Gods or who or what is God…?
Through the years, you realize that they also fulfill HIS will…!
For this reason, in my youth, it was decided not to go so far and just try to become better – to improve your character and become like the Creator, and start the path to Love. When you begin to know IT and approach IT, many secrets are revealed and what you have not seen before-then it becomes obvious! It's like a flash or an epiphany!
Much becomes clearer and the world is seen in a completely different way!
No need to look for the ROOT CAUSE – you need to make yourself HAPPY here and now and be like the CREATOR!
Well, when there was no God,I thought, who created us and invented it)I liked it,but then I remembered that God must also have parents,so I created God's parents.God's Mom and Dad)And also the grandfather and grandmother of God), etc.)Then I wanted to continue creating, but I wanted to eat)Who is not too lazy to create further, and then you need to go to work, also pay for the apartment ((And then we with God and his rules came up with that you can not just live like this, because you need to at least eat)And you have to work for food)As soon as there is time, we will come up with something better)
Do you need any information? I have them.
The information is taken from the Scriptures, of course.
14 I have written to you, fathers, because you have known the Beginningless
One(1 John 2:14).
God is called Beginningless, that is, one who has no Beginning and naturally no End. How can you imagine that ? Probably, it is difficult for the mind that has limits..Nevertheless, ” There are many things in the world, friend Horatio, that our wise men never dreamed of.”
Perhaps He is also asking this question. And he created everything that we see, so that we can answer this question of his. How do you like this version? After all, we create something without having a complete understanding of everything. So why not assume that the supermind does not have all the answers, but has certain skills to create the world.
He created you not to ask, but to find the answer to this question!
GOD is timeless, HE is always. More than eternity is Infinity. Man is not yet able to comprehend the concept of GOD. HE is LOVE, supreme, all-embracing.And that's enough for us. We have not yet matured to higher-order concepts.
The concept of a beginning exists only in the created material, and if it is created, it means that it was not created before, which means that the one who created it is not material, it turns out that it has no beginning, no aging, etc.
Not material – omnipotent and eternal, because there are shortcomings, limitations only in the material..
He created himself, according to the Bible, out of nowhere and at the same “time” he was always there, because there was no “time”; if you compare with the dispute who was before – a chicken or an egg, then everything is simple: the pro-chicken laid an egg, from which the chicken hatched and grew into a chicken, respectively, the egg was the first.
What if God is pure energy, which can be always and everywhere, capable of creating everything out of nothing?If anyone watched the movie LUCY, then it roughly reflects this. And if we talk about the nature of its origin, then here we can start from the very theory of the big bang that gave birth to the universe, that is, going along the knurled God or Gods is initially an evolution that has reached its development to the state of intelligent energy and once if we take religious books into account-this energy was at one of the stages of its Nonsense of course, but it has room for reflection!
Let's start first with the definition of ” God.” What is the meaning of this concept ?(I ask this because it means a lot of things.) Before answering a question about any subject, first you need to know the definition of the subject.
If you mean the “popular” version of” God ” that is postulated by the Abrahamic religions, then from their point of view – God (pre)the eternal exists, so that its being has no cause in a foreign object, it is its own cause. That is, no one created God.
The answer to this question varies from concept to concept, of which there are many in human history.
Most often, God is seen as something that has always existed and will always exist and does not require any reason for this.
There are, however, more interesting and unusual views on this issue. For example, pantheists claim that the world created by God is God himself. I am not sure that this thesis is correct, but I think it is possible to conclude from this statement that God created the world and created himself.
The very concept of God (the supreme absolute) suggests that no one has ever created It. If you have asked such a question, then you do not fully understand the definition of the word God.
You are trying to understand God in terms of space and time. Time is a property of matter. Both religion and science tell us that the material world once appeared. This already leads a person to think (who believes that there is life after death) that the Creator is behind creation (both a person and a universal law).
There was no time when there was no God, He was always eternal and will always be, regardless of whether the material world (and time, respectively) disappears or not-this is what monotheist believers (Christians, Muslims, Jews, Baha'is, etc.) believe.
A logically complete cosmological concept.
In order to represent boundless space initially ELEMENTALLY (El-tno):
variously (uniformly) complete – it is enough to postulate the presence of two elements in it with SIMPLE and COMPLEX /closed systemically manifested ENTITIES (s)/
heterogeneously complete-it is enough to postulate the presence of another Element in it- the Supreme and Omnipotent God – with an unclosed systemically manifested Connection.
It is not difficult to assume that even with the MINIMAL POSSIBLE DEPLOYMENT of the NON-MATERIAL COMPONENT (the development of the non-MATERIAL COMPONENT) of the Ssh – and God-the Spirit of God-beyond the level of the original downward-directed constant development from the M-th TO the Ssh-and God, the transformation is SIMPLE and COMPLEX. their disintegration occurs due to the blocking of the outcome of the ascendingly constantly developing German K-tov of their Ssh-s/, as MUCH as POSSIBLE (MssV-o) heterogeneous to God's Ssh-and MmmV-o numerically El-tny homogeneity (oRd-i # 1), and God on the basis of M-th K-tov from oRd-i # 1 develops MmmV-o heterogeneous to His Ssh-and MmmV-o numerically El-tny homogeneity (oRd-b # 2). The process of merging oRd-i No. 2 will begin at a time known to God, beginning with the completion of its development. By bringing the Spirit of God back to the level of original development, Horde # 1 is being developed again – God's potential to transform HORDE # 1 into HORDE # 2 and HORDE # 2 into HORDE #1 is limitless!
No one created God. It has always existed. This human concept that there is a beginning and an end doesn't always work. Here's an example for you
A person's life is like a chaotic fall in a hopeless void, in which there are no visible outlines of surrounding objects, no solid foundation under their feet. Does this world exist, or is it the dream of a giant clam? Are the things around us real, or are they just mirages of some distant prototype? In this abyss, it is impossible to create any constructions, because they simply have nothing to rely on, it is absurd to seriously predict and plan anything, because in the darkness of the incomprehensible, it is impossible to take into account all the factors that affect the outcome of any more or less complex case. For a young (only some 40 thousand years old) and stupid animal, which is a person, such an aimless suspended state is unacceptable and generates fear and despondency. The solution is found in the idea of an anthropomorphic “god”as a kind of “x-factor”, the supreme absolute, capable of influencing any event in the universe, creating and destroying entire worlds, but for some reason loving and personally caring Homo sapiens. The meaning and task of all religions is to learn how to control this absolute, so to speak, to adapt it to utilitarian purposes, to make it serve as a working elephant, which is feared, but still forced to carry logs in the forest by petting and feeding. Such “gods” are idols, they are born in the imagination of a person and die with him. Is a person really able to understand the essence of the universe? And is a sliver of wood floating on a river capable of understanding how a river begins, where it flows from and where it disappears? I don't think so. But the human child will pick his finger in an unknown car, sulk and stomp his feet, thinking that this behavior will force her not only to tell about herself, but also to give him a couple of glasses of ice cream.
The question is basically put incorrectly and it is impossible to answer it. This is a simple logical error: we ask a question about an object outside of human consciousness, but we demand an answer in our paradigm of thinking.
In our paradigm, God (I'm talking about an abstract concept, without reference to any religion) is not subject to methods of scientific knowledge invented by man himself and not beyond the scope of human consciousness. We do not have any data on this issue. When we ask the question ” Does God exist, and if so, where did he come from?”, the person who answers has no choice but to answer “I do not know.”
But this answer implies that the question is really asked correctly and there is an answer to it, as if there is some root cause that created “everything”, but it is simply unknown to the person answering. He will not ask himself whether a beginning is really necessary and whether it is possible, and if so, how “something” created “everything” and who in turn created this ” something “and, most importantly, why this” everything ” was created.�
The questioner will not ask himself “How can I answer this question without having data about the object? Moreover, if it exists outside of our paradigm, then how is it even possible to respond within the framework of human consciousness?” The answer “I do not know” cannot be considered correct.
Imho, if the object of the question is outside the human way of thinking, then it is impossible to answer it in our paradigm of thinking.
Ridiculous question ! The Creator of the manifested Universe has ALWAYS been, is, and will always be. Eternal and Unchangeable. Everything else created by Him is temporary and subject to destruction. Whether someone likes it or not.
Love Ring!!! And the Ring has no beginning and NO END!!! We are a week old without a year,and we have already swung to infinity!!! Whether there is a Divine hierarchy and lineage,the answer to this question is likely to remain in the form:” And so on”!!!
There was a teacher in Buddhism who became a patriarch, named Nagarjuna. He once proved from the point of view of the logic of the enlightened that the act of creationism is a delusion. For several reasons. First, for something to exist, you don't need a lender. For example, if you are healthy, this is purely your achievement, purely your personal benefit. It is not God who lent you health in order to be happy, it is your natural feature, you are free precisely because you exist on your own, for happiness you do not need to borrow health or good from the creator, just as your father's inherited blond hair no longer belongs to your father. Your health doesn't have a reason. but it is there by itself. Well, his other arguments were more metaphysical in nature. The chain of causes is an open system, as described in the Paticca Samupada, dependent origination, and there is no root cause to start anything and no root cause to start everything. The reasons are self-glorifying, and they don't need a leader in the form of a creator. The nature of everything is self-sufficient and exists in itself and by itself, while it is impersonal and there is no imaginary entity that would have self-power over anything. Even dharmas are void in nature and impersonal. Emptiness is the true source of everything and the starting point.
This is a very old thesis. And quite logical. There are several answers. First, why do we talk about God? To justify a belief that usually comes from a particular religion. Then you can use the answer of religion, where it is usually stated that God has always been.
If we are talking about some very special God, not from the Holy Scriptures, not Vishnu, not Allah. Then there are options. God can be the soul of the universe. Then it may turn out that it spontaneously manifests itself during the assembly of the body of the Universe. And in a sense, it will be the same.
Personal evolution approach. You can say that you're 2 years old is this the same you as this morning? Partly. Perhaps the creation of God-God is an evolution of personality. But we are talking about infinity. Let's move on:
The thesis about the creation of God by the previous one seems to show us the internal contradiction of the idea of God in eternity. But this is only an illusion. A person is not able to imagine infinity in all other ways. If there were still universes before the Big Bang and the Singularity, then where did the very first one come from, and if the first one didn't exist, then how is this possible? And if there were no other universes before the Big Bang, then where did matter and energy come from?
I'll try to tell you how I feel. The physical laws of the macro-world do not apply to quanta and elementary particles. Well, almost everything. Evolution works with justice and mercy. But other than human beings. I feel that infinite space at the edges of the universe and infinite time are not arranged in the way we imagine. And the question of eternity itself does not contain that grain of truth and is not so constructed that it can be answered. It is like divine justice, which is not identical with earthly justice. It's like the mind of a praying mantis that doesn't look like a human. To the extent that both can be called reason. …And what's more, the infinity we're talking about seems very human to me. As omnipotence, as omnipotence. Like absolute freedom. This is a continuation of the number series further in the line 10 to the squillion power, which is possible in mathematics, but not in the world. What's out there, beyond time, beyond the zero mark? I think it's easier than we think. I think it's incomprehensible.
Consider it a confession.
Why do you think there should be a reason for God's existence?
The reasons are a figment of your imagination. It is an abstraction, an explanatory model for empirically contemplated phenomena. You haven't seen anything beyond being human. How can you judge the environment of divine entities?
According to the Bible, God has no creator. It has never had a beginning, and it will never have an end. This may not be easy for us non-perfect people to imagine. Our brain is used to everything having its own beginning..
Our God is a programmer, of course! He programmed some shitty but funny little world and went out for a smoke. Well, sometimes he looks at his simulation and fades away.
And who created it? God of the world in which he wrote this program! God of Gods of some sort, it turns out…
So! First of all, I would like to start by quoting the words of a greedy monk from the SPAS TV channel
“- Don't talk about God without establishing yourself in the Faith!”
And then you have a simple question “why are you quoting the words of a greedy monk”, to which I would like to note that he is the same as all of us!
and finally getting to the question of God, I want to finally say that there are many Gods and they are Demons by nature, because the word “Demon” is translated from ancient Greek as God, and according to our ancestral faith ” Slavic-Arius
It didn't come out of nowhere, there was always energy, it just is, was and will be. God is a broad concept. God is in everything, the mother who gave birth to the child is the same Lord God in the concept, writers, poets, directors, artists, inventors and scientists-what unites them all? It is true that each of them embodied his plans in the material, in each of us there is a particle of the same Lord, and not just a particle. When God created man, He said, “Let us make in our image and likeness” (Gen 1: 26), and He said this about the intelligent human being, meaning the immortal soul. However, we were created not by the same “All God”, but by genetic engineers, we are the creations of alien eugenics. Take a look youtu.be
It seems to me that this question goes far beyond what our brain can understand. And thinking about it will not lead to anything. You just have to accept it. As well as the realization of what was a minute before the start and what is beyond the universe. Here you can think for yourself.
The correct answer is no one. Because the concept of “God” in both the religious and philosophical sense means the absolute limit, perfection, etc. As Anselm of Canterbury said, ” God is something more than we can think of.”�
When we ask who created God, we are asking about God himself, because if someone is behind the creation of something, then he is the “main”, “Creator”. And when the questions “who created the creator, etc.” begin, then this is a departure into a bad infinity, without meaning.�
If you come across a description of a ” god ” that someone has created, then it is not a god, but a demiurge, daimon, or other similar concept. Yes, in different cultures there are different concepts for “created gods”, but the concept of a god who is one and one, assumes initially that he was not created by anyone.
If you can't imagine what it would be like for something to exist but not be created by anyone, then that's just a problem of our limited consciousness.
Let's get away from the concept of “God” for now and think about this.�
Everything that surrounds us, all events and phenomena, have their beginning and their cause. And those events that were the cause of these events also had some cause in the earlier past. We can continue this chain of cause and effect far enough back in time, but at some point we will have to admit either that it ends in nothing, that it continues indefinitely, or that it leads us to an object that has no beginning and no reason for its existence.�
In the first case, the contradiction is that nothing can turn into something (“nothing” in this case means the real “nothing”, that is, something that does not even have the potential to turn into something). The second option is also not suitable, because an infinite chain of causes and effects simply could not begin in any way (it is impossible to count from minus infinity to zero). Finally, the third possibility leads us to believe that there is something eternal, infinite, and self-created in the universe.
If you see no errors in this chain of reasoning, then you believe in the reality of at least several characteristics of what is called “God.”
By the way, I invite everyone to watch one of the issues of the project “5 questions”, where we are just talking about the topic “Who created God?”. Welcome:
For those who find it easier to understand the printed text, here is a summary of the video:
The cosmological argument says that there can be no infinite sequence of causes and effects, and the world must have a First Cause or Origin. And this is precisely one of the characteristics of God as a Creator.
The very definition of the term “God” means that He did not have a creator or a reason for his appearance. There was no time before the beginning of the universe. But God is eternal, and He does not live in time. He created it himself and at the same time has access to the past, the present, and the future. Therefore, the question “what happened before…?” does not make sense in this case.
The same question can be asked when trying to explain the big bang. What exploded? How the thing that exploded came into being. This is still unknown to us and extremely difficult to explain intelligibly. And you don't have to explain God, you have to believe in him, just like that. Therefore, believers do not bother themselves with the question of the origin of God. They just believe. And if you prove that there is no God, then I think a good half of the believers will see the blue screen and will not carry money to the temple.That's why their feelings are so carefully protected by law.
So stop asking such questions. Otherwise, you will prove that there is no God and fall under the article.
According to the canons, God has always existed. If you are trying to find some contradictions and get to the bottom of the believers, then try to explain where the universe came from in the version of scientists. Unexpectedly, it turns out that “the universe has always existed, it is then compressed, then decompressed.” In my opinion, it sounds absolutely identical. It's just a matter of faith. It is not necessary to approach it from logical positions.
God is a spirit. Spirit generates matter, i.e. our material world. Spirit differs from matter in that Spirit always exists, and matter is destroyed. Therefore, God does not need to be created, he exists forever. Just like us, we are part of it. Only matter changes, is born and destroyed.
People come to understand the necessity of God when they ask, ” Where did this world come from?”Thinking about the cause of the universe leads to the understanding that matter must have some immaterial root cause, which, unlike matter, is not subject to change. The statement that matter has always existed, changing infinitely, does not answer the question: “What is the cause of the very first matter?” This infinite and fruitless regression is called “bad infinity”. It is precisely this bad infinity that is expressed in this question.
In other words, the question itself proves only one thing: “A 'god' who has a cause or creator cannot be God.” We fully agree with this. God (with a capital letter), by definition, can have no cause, or creator. He Himself is causa sui, the first cause of all things, the self-sufficient cause of himself.
People are used to thinking in terms of causality, transferring their ideas to the sphere of infinity. Hence, there is a logically ill-founded postulate: “The root cause of the cause of this world must have its own cause.” It is very difficult for us to understand that there can be causeless things. Interestingly, in the Vedas, the sphere that separates the world of matter from the spiritual world is called the Causal Ocean: everything on this side of the Causal Ocean is rigidly connected by the law of causes and effects, everything on the other side is causeless. Therefore, in our world, almost everything is subject to the law of self-interest, and in the spiritual sphere, the law of Causeless Love reigns.
Eternity is one of the attributes of God in the so-called “Abrahamic” religions, i.e. in Christianity, Islam and Judaism. That is, the very concept of God means that God is eternal and not created by anyone or anything. On the contrary, it is the world created by God “out of nothing”, so we can speak of God as the first cause of everything. If you are asking “who created God”, then since it is said that God is eternal, this question is logically incorrect in itself.
It depends on what you mean by this question.
God, in his philistine view, was invented “in his own image and likeness” by a person who lives in the world of finite entities and can only operate on them.
God , on the other hand, is in the world of infinite entities, so he cannot fall under our definition of life and death..
