All this discussion of God lacks a definition of God. I have my own analysis.

Physicists trace the origin of the universe to a single point of matter and energy that exploded to create the universe. That explosion was dubbed the Big Bang. Symmetrically, at the end of the universe, everything in the universe collapses into that point. Time is circular and has no beginning and no end. This view solves the quandary of what came before the Creation: There is no God because there is no unique moment when the universe was created. just as a circle has no starting point.
