    If God had to make up energy and matter and time. Were was energy and matter and time before God made them?:confused: I am asking all religions at the same time what they think.

    What is God? Did God "make up" energy, matter, and time? Or are energy, matter, and time a manifestation (or illusion) of God?

    I believe that the Main Creator, God, actually made all that. God isn't limited by creation, in other words.

    Because the nature, of God, the Main Creator, in other words God has created other celestial beings, the Main Creator, is actually different from what we perceive, normally. What we normally perceive is surmised in a context, that God is partly separate from.

    The concept of self creation, I consider another matter, however is related to this. In other words, our normal perception is limited, because that is the nature, or construct, of the 'material universe'.

    This answer makes the most sense.
    The entire universe and everything in it is a manifestation of God.

    Everything in the universe manifests something about God.

    Every tree, every rock, every planet, every ray of sunshine, every amoeba, every bees knee.

    God is infinite, infinite can encompass quite a bit of stuff.

    Also, the universe is in God.

    They are one and the same. Culture and language makes "god" exist. People make sense of the world through culture and language. Outside of that, it's just energy, matter, and time.

    In my religion good things have always been... only satan was created (for a short time). All new thing must end... unless you can remain new in everafter as if you were always old if had existed forever before hand.

    God didn't have to make energy....he is energy.

    And from energy, comes all matter.
    And within matter, energy is harnessed in it's atomic structure.

    What makes it more confusing is God made time.But before he made time everything was at 0.I do not get how that works.:confused:

    What is the practical purpose of understanding these things?.. Maybe you are expecting too much of yourself.

    If anyone here has the literal correct answer, they would be a super famous genius.

    Time, like the existence of God Himself, is eternal, open-ended. The fact that massive amounts of energy may be converted into matter may be the key to the existence of our universe. The Big Bang could come from extreme energy being tossed into what then became our universe. All matter/energy resulted from that massive explosion.
