God always was, always is, and will always be. He was not created, he just is.

But God is the creator of everything and the foundation of existence. Then either he willed himself to be, or he had no control over his always being here.

If he willed himself to be, this presents the obvious paradox.

If he had no control then he had no say so in his coming to be, sorta how I had no say so in my own birth. This presents at least one situation in which God had no control over, hence he is not the foundation of existence. This would imply there is something deeper ... more fundamental than God. But whatever this "deeper principle or spirit"... it in itself takes on the role of creator. Well then this is actualy God. But then this post loops back on itself to the very first sentence.
