Who did create God?
Religionists argue that the universe requires a creator. It was created by God. The question is who created God. Have you an answer other than the usual one which tells that religion and god are matters of faith where reason is irrelevant?
There are two major views about universe. The first view is that of the religionists. According to this view the Universe is created and God is its creator. The second view is of the materialists. According to their view the universe was there from time immemorial. It was not formed or created, it was simply there, and hence it has neither beginning nor end.
The materialists claim that some 1500 or 2000 crore years ago the universe was a high density mass. When this mass reached extreme height of density and heat, it exploded. This explosion was followed by a series of explosions. According to the materialists, the explosion was the result of the original mass touching a height of density and heat which was beyond calculation. The big bang or the explosion was also immeasurable. The universe, with a temperature of 3000 crore degree Celsius, came in to existence at the moment of explosion. The explosion resulted in expansion, and consequently the temperature began to fall. Only four minutes after the explosion neutrons and protons joined, and the materialists argue it was this joining of neutrons and protons which resulted in the beginning of the life of all things - ranging from stars to human beings.
The concept of the materialists regarding the origin of the universe raises certain unanswered questions. When did the original mass reach the highest point of heat and density? Why did not it happen before, or after this particular moment? If the mass were in the highest density and heat from time immemorial, why did not the explosion occur then and there? If the heat and density were not highest level in the time immemorial, then how did they reach their highest point? Was there any interference from outside? If so what was it? Or were the density and heat were later added to the mass? When did the first explosion occur? Why did it happen at that particular moment only, and not before or after? When did the sun and the moon split, which was a single mass? Why did this split happen at a particular moment, and neither before nor after it? The materialists have not answered all these questions. It is impossible to give an answer.
Everybody admits that this universe is quite systematic and in proper order. Precision, harmony and rhythm are obvious in the structure of this universe. It is an everlasting sign of clear reason and perfect planning. Today there are approximately 600 crore human beings in the world. They breathe the same air and drink the same water. Their food is almost the same. Yet the faces of these 600 crore people are different from one another. No face is identical with another one. How small the human thumb is. Yet nowhere in the world among the 600 crore people, can we see identical fingers. Add to this number the millions that lived before us and the millions to live after us. This is also the case of hair. There are billions of hair on the heads of the 600 crore people, all different from one person to another. A DNA test can identify the hair of a particular person. Blood flows through the arteries of these 600 crore people, and the drops of blood too are different from person to person. Each human body has a distinct odour, which is different from the others. If human body is so wonderful, and its functioning is so systematic and planned, then it is unwise and irrational to say that it was mere coincidence, and it is the result of mere evolution of matter and motion. Unless one is blind with pride, he knows that the claim is utter foolishness. It is rational to admit and believe that these 600 crore people with distinctive faces, fingers, smells, hair and distinctive blood were created by an omnipotent, omniscient and rational power. And that power is the God, the creator of this universe.
The materialists say that nothing is new in the universe. If there is anything new, the question naturally arises is 'who created it?' However about 600 crore people who live on earth have their intelligence, consciousness, knowledge as well as reason. Where were the intelligences, consciousness, knowledge as well as reason? Had the original mass before the explosion contained all these? Then the mass must have contained boundless intelligence, consciousness, knowledge and reason? Inanimate mass could be much omniscient and rational?
So it is reasonable and right to believe that God, whose knowledge, consciousness, and reason are boundless, gave some of these qualities to the 600 crore human beings. This is the only truthful and discrete approach.
Everybody acknowledges the existence of the time immemorial and it must be. The materialists argue this force to be the inanimate matter, and the religionists believe it to be the omnipotent and omniscient God. If the force is timeless without a beginning, questions like who created it and how it came into being are irrelevant. The same is equally applicable to those who ask questions like who created God, who himself is timeless.
Anything which is matter-based will not be without a creator. Hence the universe that is made of matter must undoubtedly have a creator. However the laws and systems applicable to the matter based are not applicable to what is beyond matter. God is beyond matter. So based on the laws and criteria of a matter based universe cannot ask the question as who created God, who is beyond matter. Such questions are irrelevant.
It is undeniable and universally agreed that there must be something which is timeless, without a beginning, and which should be forever. And this force is the omnipotent God, the creator and sustainer of the universe.
