I was teaching a group of teens one time about the origins of all that we see. One of the teens asked me where did God come from or who created God? Let’s go down that road. For sake of argument let’s assume someone created the God to whom we attribute creation. We’ll call that someone Super-God. Well, then the question must be asked, who created Super-God? We’ll call the one who created Super-God, Super-Super-God. Well then, who created Super-Super-God? You see where that can go very quickly. Because of our God-given understanding of finite and infinite ultimately we must accept the fact that there was someone or something that created it all and was not created. Otherwise the argument goes on forever and ever without any logical conclusion. Was that Super-Super-Super-Super-Super-God? If, in order to make sense, we must come to the conclusion there was someone or something that created it all and was not created, doesn’t it make just as much sense that someone was God?
Even the theories of origin that so often accompany the theory of evolution require us to acknowledge something had to start it all. We often hear the Big Bang theory discussed. This term, as used by scientists, refers to the idea that the universe has expanded from a primordial hot and dense Initial condition at some finite Cosmological time in the past, and continues to Metric Expansion of space to this day. The Big Bang theory cannot and does not provide any explanation for this initial condition. Instead, it describes and explains the general evolution of the universe since that instant. So what are the origins of that initial condition? Something had to precede that condition and that instant.
Notice the use of the term finite time? In other words, meaning it had a beginning. No matter how we wrap our minds around the origins of what we see and have today we keep coming back to the logical conclusion that something back there must be infinite, that is, without a beginning. Every theory put forth by man regarding the origins has at its foundation something that in and of itself is finite. But where did that something originate from? Something had to precede it. Ultimately that something had to be infinite, without a beginning. In other words it ‘always was’. Remember our illustration above with the teens. If you precede a finite thing with another finite thing the question can ALWAYS be asked, what is the origin of that finite thing? The only way to end is to accept what our mind is logically telling us and that is at the beginning of all finite things there exists an infinite thing.
