|God had no beginning. At least that is the traditional mantra. God is the prime mover, the first cause and only cause without a cause.|
That sounds reasonable... until you start to ask what happened before the universe was made, because then you have to deal with the absurdity of eternity.
Eternity isn't just a one way street. Sure, it will go on forever after us, but it has already gone on forever before us!
In the last frame, I cozied up close to the Young Earth Creationists' start date, because I think they have the most accurate date for the start of everything, Biblically speaking of course. But the absurdity is not lost even if we rejoin the more-progressive Christians who accept a Big-Bang beginning at roughly 13.77 billion years ago, because God would have existed long before that by definition, like forever.
Any way you look at it, we have existed for a trivially insignificant amount of time compared to God. It is the hubris of humanity to think that, if there is a god, we are the most important beings in that god's world. After all, what is the likelihood that throughout the eternity before us that we are the only ones?
Those who believe that aliens have visited this planet often cite the possibilities if another planet developed life a mere one million years before the earth did. Likewise, who is to say that a god who could create a universe from nothing didn't already create many universes long before the fuse was lit on our big banging ball?
