If God created the universe, who created God?

Editor:

I’m writing about Mathew Myrup’s thoughtful letter of Dec. 6, “Intelligent design is not scientific.” It seems to me that there are a lot more questions than answers regarding intelligent design.

If an intelligent designer created the universe, who or what created this intelligent designer? What did this intelligent designer do before it created the universe? Where did this intelligent designer get the material to create the universe?

Why can the universe not have existed forever if the creator of the universe can exist forever? Could it be that the “Big Bang” was not really the beginning, but rather just one cycle in a series of endless cycles?

There are about 200 billion stars in our medium-sized Milky Way galaxy, and there are about 400 billion galaxies in the known universe-plus or minus a few hundred trillion for the part we don’t know.

The earth is like one grain of sand upon all the beaches of the world. Was the universe created for one of the inhabitants of just one of those grains of sand?
