What came before God? Don't give me the creationsist psycobable bullshit of God "always being there"....that Language Removed won't work with me. We live in a linear universe, which means there is always a before and after.

God had to be created somehow. If you tell me that he was there for all of eternity, I will know that you have now idea of the significance of eternity...if time is eternal in both directions, it wouldn't matter how much time has passed between the beginning of mankind until its end...there will always be an eternity before and after(think about it)...

So, There are two possiblities: (1) The universe is linear(there is such a thing as time) and God had to have started somewhere(or we would have been created an infinite amount of years ago(remember, eternity before us)); or (2) time does not exist and everytime(past and future) is actually the present...That is the most likely, but it is too difficult to explain(But it would mean that even God has a beginning)...I want you to pick between the possibilities.
