Who Created God? Why Can't the Universe be inifinte
I would like to respond to Brian's and Kelly's Question to Krik and Ray on
Who Created God? and Why can't the universe be inifinte?
1st lest deal with Who Created God?
God by definition means -- a spirit worshiped as having power over nature,- the creator and ruler of the universe; the supreme being, uncaused.
Now of course I know you don't believe in the God of the bible, but understand this, No one created God, because God is the Creator. as Ray and Kirk said there can't be an on-going of who made God then who made that God then who made that God.. it would go on forever Plus it's not logical.

This Argument that I'm about to present also deals with why the Universe can't not be infinte.........
The Cosmological Argument
The Cosmological Argument attempts to prove that God exists by showing that there cannot be an infinite number of regressions of causes to things that exist. It states that there must be a final uncaused-cause of all things. This uncaused-cause is asserted to be God.
The Cosmological Argument takes several forms but is basically represented below.
- Things exist
- It is possible for those things to not exist.
- Whatever has the possibility of non existence, yet exists, has been caused to exist.
- Something cannot bring itself into existence since it must exist to bring itself into existence which is illogical.
- Because an infinite regression of causes ultimately has no initial cause which means there is no cause of existence.
Thomas Aquinas (1224-1274) had a version of the Cosmological Argument called the Argument from Motion. He stated that things in motion could not have brought themselves into motion but must be caused to move. There cannot be an infinite regression of movers. Therefore, there must be an Unmoved Mover. This Unmoved Mover is God.
With that said we can that the universe cannot be infinte because it has a possibility of being destroyed - therefore the universe is created. it is not infinite. God also by definition is infinte, Uncaused. That what God is and means. Therefore you can't say that something had to create God because its God, God exists, God is uncaused, God creates.

One of the weaknesses of the argument is that if all things need a cause to exist, then God Himself must also, by definition, need a cause to exist. But this only pushes causation back and implies that there must be an infinite number of causes which cannot be.
by definition, God is uncaused not the Universe
