Who Created God

One day I asked a religious person:
Who created God?
Predictably, the answer was: no one.
It is generally assumed that “God”
must of necessity precede creation
since the title of “Creator”
is also ascribed to this entity.

Everything comes from something else.
That is how it is with nature.
If “God” exists entirely outside nature,
what kind of being is that?
How can it know anything about life
if it manifests outside of life?
Are we just toys or trinkets
in the hands of some cosmic child?
Are we mindless automatons
that some creators made to serve them?

Yes, I know what religious books say,
and I know what preachers add to it all.
And I also know what the results of their thoughts
have been on this world.
I have experienced the love of religion
and that’s an “ouch!”
I have had “friends” who insisted
I needed to be “saved”
and have my sins forgiven –
but discovered my “sins” were less evil
than the collective ways of any Saviours.

Obviously – this is no big trick to know –
“God” is the “Big Stick”
invented by psychopaths to beat up
on people they are not able to outsmart
in the real world.

I so totally agree with this! My take on it has been a little different, but I can completely agree with this. To me it has always seemed that the "Gods" of most organized religions that claim that they are the only way to eternal peace, and you MUST abide by THEIR set ways of life are just bullies on ant hills with magnifying glasses. And we're the ants.

I do not know the workings of God but I do believe faith in Him is a gift.  It is difficult to take that jump into the unknown.  But it can be rewarding.
