One of the most recurring questions that creationists usually get by atheists is: "If God Created the Universe Then who Created God or Where did God Come From?". Is it possible to answer this or is the question inherently flawed?

God get hard without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the neighbor.
An imperial God moved upon the face of the water and God said.
Let there be light and there was light and God saw the light.
They were good and God divided the light from the darkness.
One of the top theological questions is: where did God come from when heaven and earth were yet on me when there was empty blackness and horde, formlessness and darkness was on the face of the deep when time was yet unknown, thou in thy blessed and majesty did live and love alone.
He called light out of darkness.
He called cosmos out of chaos.
That is, he called aura out of confusion, but the question still clan was for an answer.
Where did God come from? The earth was created six thousand years ago in six days by God.
I am confused being philosophically consistent and being very honest person.
I'm sure you can tell me where God came from and in addition, in addition, once you've told me where God comes from, please try to clarify how you can figure that a spiritual force can have an impact on a material universe to create it.
If you believe that God created the universe, then logically, you've got to ask the question who created God and then you have to ask who created the God that who created the God, who created the God that created the God that created God and so on ad infinitum? Well, let's analyze it for a moment who created God.
If you ask that question, it shows you've immediately.
Categorized God has created so you're talking about a created God.
This question is extremely interesting because it's an illustration of a question that already rules out the explanation.
That's most likely to be true, because the Christian claim is that God wasn't creator the world, whatever you believe, if you grant, if you grant that you can't get something from nothing right, you can't get something from nothing.
It can't be the case if you accept, as I think everybody does, that this option is ruled out once upon a time.
There was absolutely nothing and then all of a sudden there was everything or anything you can't get anything from nothing yeah.
That just goes against all logic.
So if you believe that that you can't get something from nothing and you grant that there is now something which I'm hoping you do since I'm talking to you and I'm a something- and so are you, then there must have always been a something.
Everyone has to believe that something has been forever.
Otherwise, we'd still have nothing.
So it's a question of what is the? What is this something that has been around forever now? Here's the thing everything we know about the physical world tells us that it's not a good candidate for something that has been around forever, especially since the 30s of the last century, with the acceptance of the Big Bang Theory, which has, which is, you know, pretty much uniform now, which is telling us that this universe, as we now know it is a one way show it's a one time.
One way show everything indicates that energy is being used up as they mentioned earlier.
Second law of thermodynamics is very well established.
The Suns are running out of energy.
We now know that the outer rim of the the universe is farther out.
We go, the faster is expanding, so the expansion seems to be speeding out and we have no way of explaining that energy is being used and and and everything we know about it- is that it's used up so the physical world, physical reality, isn't a good candidate for the something that must have always been for there to be anything so whatever there was.
That is the cause of what is must be quite different than what is because what is my definite as far as we know, it can't always have been and I submit to you that all contingent reality, which is simply reality that could be otherwise.
This chair, you meet virtually everything you're, seeing here it came into being.
It goes out of being as forever on the precipice of non-being.
It's you know, it's not solid it.
It disappears in time that all those things don't explain themselves.
None of this explains themselves in the totality of contingent things, don't explain themselves they're, like rope.
Everything depends on everything else is like dominoes and at some point you have to suppose that there must be something that's very much, unlike we're, trying to explain to explain what we're in the process of so if God was uncreate in the beginning was the word the Word was with God and the Word was God.
He already was so the central Christian claim, and in Judaism in Islam of course equally is that God is eternal, so the question by definition, doesn't even apply to him.
The only way you can get anything argument them in the negative sense is to assume that everything is in the category of the creator, but that's just begging the original question and the Greeks were interested in it and that's why John's Gospel starts with those words in the beginning.
The word already was and then it says all things came to be through him.
The Greeks were interested in the question of two categories, the things that came to be the creative thing and the things that are already where and the the question resolves down to this.
Is there a thing or a being that never came to be, and that is the Christian claim and he's called God.
You say that who created God is a legitimate question.
I, don't think it is, but let me assume now that it is you believe that the universe created you so I think leave now to ask you using your own question, who created your Creator I've waiting stone for the answer.
I was talking to about a thousand scientists, and a man came up to me afterwards, physicist.
He said it was very interesting.
All that talk about God, but he said you know: I detect you're a Christian as a Christian you're obliged to believe that God is a Trinity that Jesus was God and man and he said now come on you're a mathematician at Oxford.
This is absurd.
Can you explain it to me well, I said: can I ask you a question first, he said sure so I said tell me what is consciousness and he thought for a second and then he said I don't know.
I said that's! Okay! Let me try an easier one.
What is energy, what said I'm a physicist I can measure energy I could use it.
I said you know, that's not my question.
What is it he said? I, don't know, tell me I said: do you believe in consciousness? Yes, he said: do you believe in energy? Yes, he said so I said you believe in these two things you don't know what they are I said.
Should I write you off as an intellectual, and he said please don't and I said, but that's exactly what you were going to do with me five minutes ago and I said: if you don't know what energy is and nobody does, if you don't know what energy is, don't be surprised if energy light gravity and consciousness are a mystery, don't be surprised if you're going to get an element of this in God you're bound together question who created God well, this is not at all difficult to answer.
A timeless, eternal being cannot have a cause, as Keith Ward points out in his book, God chance and necessity.
If one asks what caused God, the answer is that nothing could bring into being a reality which wholly transcends space-time and which is self existent to fail to grasp such an idea is to fail to grasp what God is.
Everything that begins to exist has a cause.
Something cannot come into being out of nothing, but if something is eternal and timeless, then it doesn't fall under that.
First premise: it doesn't need a cause.
Even atheists, like Daniel Dennett, recognize that if eternal verities exists, like numbers or mathematical objects, they don't need a cause because they never come into being.
They don't begin to exist and the concept of God is the concept of an eternal self-existent necessary being, and therefore the answer is simply that God is uncaused.
He is self-existent.
Our definition of God is the uncreated creator of the universe.
So to ask the question who created the uncreated creator is kind of like asking what sound does silence make, or do you see what I'm saying it's a definition of silence that precludes us from asking the question, and that is really what we're doing here.
When we ask the question who created the uncreated creator of the universe, do we as Christians have a problem in grounding our beliefs in a God that is uncreated and does the atheist have a better answer for this? Well I'll tell you as a non-believer and I was a non-believer too I was 35.
I also believed in an uncreated creator.
Maybe it was a multiverse generator.
Maybe it was some quantum environment in which our university merged spontaneously, regardless of what it was that caused the universe as an atheist I, would have told you that that thing was uncreated, so it turns out.
Everyone believes, there's an uncreated creator so which I want you to fill in the story of the rest of the beginning of the universe, God, spiritual matter, impact on materi, okay, so two questions, alright good.
Alright, your question: where did God come from, assumes that you're thinking of the wrong, obviously a displace that you're thinking of the wrong God, because the God of the Bible is not affected a time space or matter.
If he's, if he's affected by time, space or matter he's not God time, space and matter is what we call a continuum.
All of them have to come into existence at the same instant, because if there were a mattre but no space, where would you put it if there were matter in space but no time? When would you put it? You cannot have time space or matter independently.
They have to come into existence simultaneously.
The Bible answers that in 10 words in the beginning for time, God created the heaven their space and the earth there's matter.
So you have time space matter created a Trinity of Trinity's their justice.
You know time is past present.
Future space has length, width height matter has saw the liquid gas.
We have a trinity of Trinity is created instantaneously and the God who created them has to be outside of them.
If he's limited by time, he's not God.
The guy who created this computer is not in the computer he's not running around in there changing the numbers on the screen.
Okay, the God, who created this universe, is outside of the universe he's above and beyond, and in it through it, he's he's unaffected by it so for Dan denied the concept of a spiritual force cannot have any effect on a material body.
Well then, I guess you'd have to explain to me things like emotions and love and hatred and envy, and jealousy and rationality I mean if your brain is just a random collection of chemicals.
It formed by chance over billions of years.
How on earth? Can you trust your own reasoning processes and the thoughts that you think? Okay, so I'd? Given your ear question where did God come from is assuming and limited God and that's your problem, the God that I worship is not limited by time, space or matter.
If I could fit the infinite God in my 3 pound brain he would not be worth worshiping.
That's for certain.
So that's the guy that I worship thinking and there see as he came from no way now, thats theologically, correct and as biblically sound for her Beckett said.
I saw him when he left the heels of demon.
The Holy One from mouth Perrin and team in scepter means nothing in nowhere.
So he came from no way.
I made that statement in Detroit some time ago and a man talked with math to the meeting and he said preacher, let's be reasonable about this thing you up there tonight talking about God came from nowhere.
That doesn't make sense.
Let's be reasonable.
Fine I said all right.
If you just want to be reasonable about it.
The reason God came from nowhere.
There wasn't anywhere fun to come from and coming from nowhere, he stood all nothing and the reason he had to stand on nothing.
There was nowhere for him to stay and standing on nothing.
He reached out where there was no, where to reach and caught something when there was nothing to catch and hung something or nothing and told it to stay there now you'll find there enjoy twenty six and seven that he hung this world on nothing and standing, no nothing.
He took the hammer of his own wheel and he spoke the anvil of his omnipotence and sparks flew therefrom and he caught them on the tips of his fingers and flung them out into space and bedecked.
The heavens with stars- and nobody said a word, the reason nobody said anything there wasn't anybody that to say anything so God Himself said that's good and God have given Christ a name.
That's above every name that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God.
