In the CTMU (www.ctmu.org), God is the universe and the universe is a self-creating entity. This is from some one of Chris Langan's posts:

"...when it comes to explaining the origin and evolution of the universe, there are just the following possibilities:

1. The universe was not created; it simply always was and always will be.
2. The universe arose randomly, but despite its random nature, somehow manages to hold itself together across vast reaches of time and space.
3. The universe is just one universe among countless universes floating around in a "multiverse", from one of which it may initially have "budded".
4. The universe was created by an external Maker.
5. The universe is self-creating.

1, 2, 3 and 4, which come alone and in various combinations, explain nothing. In fact, 1 and 2 can be proven logically absurd, while 3 and 4 merely push the problem of existence back a step without solving it. 5 is the only one that *even has a chance* of explaining *anything*. Since science is about explanation, 5 is the only scientifically valid choice."
