This is kind of a response to "If not for creation..." Is it that hard to admit that religion is not science? I am not saying that there is anything wrong with religion, but rather that religion is not science. It is religion.
From a Christians point of view, we believe God always existed. I believe as humans we can't really get a grip on such a concept. It would be like me asking you if the universe ends at a brick wall, or how far is up. Neither religion or science could provide such an answer.

Religion is not science. But science becomes a religion when we believe that all the answers can be found in science or having scientific proof. If we push science to explain what it cannot test, like the past. If we accept what scientists say verbatum with no basis in science about where we came from... Then that science is a religion.

God invented matter, time and space. All we see, and touch was made of matter invented by Him. He already existed.
