    Beyond the beyond
    My father once asked me a question a long while ago. Essentially, we were talking about religion and some of the aspects of it. He's committed to his beliefs but this time, he posed a question that didn't sound like him and one I occasionally ponder.

    "If God created the world and God is in control of what we consider our immediate universe, the planets, Earth, time and space and our very beings, what created God? What's beyond what we know and what's beyond what we don't?"

    At that point, my mind truly went blank as it went through the variations of person to sky to space to universe to an entity to nothing. Knowledge ended there. I was 15 if I remember correctly. Today, this question has more knowledge attached to it, but I still have no answer.

    Very clever, young man, very clever, but it's just turtles all the way down!

    As far as I can figure, the person who wrote the Bible created God. But the problem with that is that Christianity was lifted straight from Egyptian astronomy.
