Who created God?

God >> Who created God?



An infinite regression of gods

It is now up to the Christian to answer the question: Who created God? "Surely, nothing as complex and intricate as a supernatural intelligence can be the result of mere “chance.” Therefore, there must be a super-designer who designed God. But a super-designer [God 1] would require a super-super designer [God 2], and so on ad infinitum … If an orderly universe requires an explanation, the positing of a god does not provide it." (Smith 1989, p.150)

"The reply that God is self-caused (somehow) ... raises the rebuttal: If something can be self-caused, why can’t the universe as a whole be the thing that is self-caused?" (Dennett 2006, p.242)
