A Mindbruising Question #2

Standard

universe

The age old question:

If there’s a grand architect of the universe, then who created him?

When you ask that question you create a paradox. If somebody created God than who created him? If something did, then who created that god? You then end up with an infinite number of gods that created each other and it becomes an endless circle.

The way modern religions relieve themselves of this is to propose an omnipotent god. That also is a paradox in itself. The omnipotence paradox aka the stone paradox goes like this:

“Could an omnipotent being create a stone so heavy that even that being could not lift it?”

If the being could create such a stone than it would no longer be omnipotent since being unable to lift the stone. If not, then it seems the being was not omnipotent after all.
