Are you a 

non believer?

16. who or what created god?

Often, many unbelievers question, “Who created God?” They may say, “If he is our creator, then something or someone must have created Him in the first place.”


To begin, we must recognize that this reasoning can be used against unbelievers in the exact same manner. We too can ask them “If you believe the universe made you, then who created your creator (the universe)?” They may argue by discussing the multiverse, however, this will only continue in the same dilemma as you can ask “Then, what or who created the multiverse?”. In view of this, we see that this questioning could continue infinitely of who or what created what in the first place. This is logically incoherent, and it has been agreed upon by theist and atheist alike.


This argument, however, is based on the wrong premise that we believe in a created god. However, the God of the Bible never presents himself as such being. God was never created; He has always been (Isaiah 40:28, Psalm 90:2, Hebrews 1:8, Deuteronomy 33:27 etc). God, as the creator of the universe, is outside of the realm and properties that governs it.  He is therefore not subject to space and time. In other words, God is timeless (eternal) and spaceless (omnipresent) and powerful to create the universe and everything that exists. He is the first cause and is what in philosophy is labeled as a necessary being. Therefore, it is impossible for him not to exist.


Some mathematicians have postulated that abstract objects such as numbers, for example, exist necessarily. They are not contingent things but necessary. However, we do know that numbers as well as any other abstract object in and of themselves do not create anything. The number 32, for example, does not create anything nor has the power to do so. On the other hand, God, as a personal being, is all powerful, spaceless, timeless, morally perfect, and can create a universe from nothing.


Therefore, when someone asks you who created God, you may answer by telling them that you do not believe in a created god. You believe in the God of the Bible who is uncreated, omniscient, omnipresent, eternal, morally perfect and all powerful.


Note: For a more in depth understanding of how this is explained, please refer to the contingency argument. It is a great argument that explains in more depth how everything that exists has an explanation of its existence, either by the necessity of their own nature (God) or by an external cause (contingent).
