The 3 Possibilities Of Universe Creation

1. The universe is created out of the blue.

2. God is created out of the blue and he in turn creates the universe.

3. Nothing gets created out of the blue. I.e. The 'family tree' of all objects goes on infinitely.

Number 2 is very similar to number 1. The only difference most religous people would claim would be that god is non-detectable by humans and is therefore not really in this universe with us. They would also argue that god controls most or all objects in the universe.

But if this god was created out of the blue, why can't we just forget him and accept number 1? If you're religous and you choose number 3, why can't you accept that god is not needed in the equation.

Pls focus specifically on one of these two questions in any response, thankyou.
