One thought on “Quick Challenge Question: Who Created God?”

  1. I think I can see where this is going, so I might be pre-empting some of what you’re saying. Theists often argue that there can’t be an infinite regress, and define God in such a way that God has no beginning – self-caused or eternal. However, if you make two categories – those things that can be eternal and those that can’t – there isn’t ever given a good way to figure out which things can possibly fall into those categories. Can minds fit in the eternal category without hitting the infinite regress problem? Perhaps only abstract things can, or perhaps only mindless things can. I don’t know – but I’m certain no one else knows either. Perhaps universes can be eternal? In which case, we don’t need the God concept to solve the infinite regress problem. To answer that you’d need to understand the physical models, down to quantum gravity, and we don’t have that understanding yet.
