This is only a semi-serious question but unless it is handled properly it can completely discredit your authority.
There are only two possibilities, that the universe itself is eternal or there is something outside of the universe that is eternal. If you say to an atheist that by definition God is not created they respond with ‘by definition matter is not created’ and you are at an impasse.
However, if you get ahead of it, there has to be something that was eternal. We know that the universe is not eternal because the Big Bang shows that there was a beginning and the fact that the universe’s expansion is accelerating shows that there is no way that the universe could ever come back to a singularity.
Along with the Law of Entropy states that the universe will eventually run out of usable energy should be enough to show that there is no way that the universe is eternal.
So there had to be an origin point. Something caused the Big Bang, and an eternal all-powerful force makes a lot more sense than saying nothing caused it.

There is nothing semi serious about asking who created god unless you cannot answer it yourself.
Logically if you are going to use the Big Bang as evidence to support your theory you have to give up the foolish concept that the earth is only 4000 years old and this of course leads down the rabbit hole of acceptance for evolution. Speaking of evolution did Jesus die for the sins of all the other known hominids who have walked this earth for millions of years, what about their souls?
Sir, I am going to assume that you are Buddhist. Why do you desire to try and poke holes in my argument? It seems to me that that is not very conducive to the religion you follow. As to the question that you asked it is of no importance. So what if he did or didn’t. If they were human and sinful then He died for them, if they were not human and not sinful, then He did not die for them. Easy as pie, nice try.
So why do apologetics poke holes in others beliefs? Or is that another question of no importance. You should welcome such questions, is not the whole purpose of apologetics to try to defend the faith as logically and wisely as possible. It looks like a lost opportunity.
Secondly if there was a Big Bang then we are also not the only intelligent life in this vast universe. There are other beings who are highly conscious and understanding of all things. But maybe they have sinned? Did he die for their sins? If he did not why are we so special and deserving of salvation and the others are not?
Is there any evidence that there is life in other planets? No.
Dear Carl do you wish to discuss this in three different threads or all in one? Thank you for your willingness for dialogue.
Right now my only wish is to go to bed. Not gonna lie. Respond however you want and I will try to respond promptly.
