Re: Who made God?

Here's a simple answer: No one

Here's a more detailed answer:
The answer to this question depends on your definition of God. Many religions have a "GOD" or a diety that they worship or revere, but I believe there is one creator or "God". Therefore every other "GOD" was made my MAN. 

So, if your question is "who made the God who is revealed in the Holy Bible" (The Christian's God), then I would answer with "no one made Him". Let me explain. God made all things and through Him, all things were made, but God himself is not a created being. He has always been there.

So God has always been there? How can something not have come from somewhere? How can something not have evolved or not have been born at some stage, regardless of how long ago it was?

Re: Who made God?

This guy explains it well (how could God have "always" been there; is anything eternal; is it all just a matrix?)

Perhaps it's best to start with the idea that something has always been there as opposed to nothing. That 'something' could be the God of the bible but it could also be the flying spaghetti monster. But that is another question. The argument comes from a look at reality asking a fundamentally important philosophical question. Did something come from something else or did it come from nothing? Did this universe come from something else or did it come from nothing? What is the most reasonable answer?

Nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could. You cannot get something from nothing. So when we look at the beginning of the universe the most reasonable answer would be that something started it. Something got it going. We know from the study of the natural sciences that the universe has not always existed. It definitely has a beginning. So inference to the best explanation suggests that something started it as opposed to nothing.

What we can't say is that the universe has just been evolving for long ages because we know that at some point in the past it had a beginning. One could not suggest an infinite regress of evolution because we don't have infinite tnot to play around with. Time and space are intertwined and you cannot separate the two. This is interesting because what that means is that whatever it was that started the universe (time and space) is not bound by it. If one is not bound by time, then by definition they are eternal. And that is why an eternal being before space and time (the universe) is necessary.

That should be where one would start with this age old question. From there the next question is what that 'something' might actually be.

Whatever is but might not be is dependent on what is and cannot not be.

Re: Who made God?

NO one creates GOD. Because He is the creator and so, no one can create HIM. Before the universe began , HE is already present

We are not alone. There is something out there bigger than ourselves. Where will you go after you die? What do you believe and why do you believe it? What is the point of having a mind if you never change it? Here's a surprisingly unsurprising statistic: Everyone dies sooner or later; there is no escaping it and you will be dead for longer than you are alive. This suggests that eternity might be worth more than a passing thought.

Are you ready for the inevitable? There is no need to be fearful of that inevitable moment, so long as you are prepared and as long as you are not taking comfort in something that sounds nice but is really just positive but wishful thinking. Make your life journey count, consider your eternal destination. Just believing in a lie wont make it truth, no matter how much you want it or how appealing that lie is. It is better to know the truth than to live in the delusion of a lie. No one likes being deceived, but in a world of political correctness, acceptance and anything goes, it is easy to side-step the truth of reality. What REALLY is true?

Can we just make up our own truth and say "well that is true for you, but my truth is something else"? Surely we can't all be right, especially when there are so many contradictory beliefs and top world religions out there.
