Evil spirits and satan interacted with lowly humans (trash of people of every generation) and convinced them there is no go
Many myths explain how the world came into existence. The Dogon say that twin pairs of creator spirits or gods called Nummo hatched from a cosmic egg. Other groups also speak of the universe beginning with an egg. People in both southern and northern Africa believe that the world was formed from the body of an enormous snake, sometimes said to span the sky as a rainbow.
The Fon people of Benin tell of Gu, the oldest son of the creator twins Mawu (moon) and Lisa (sun). Gu came to earth in the form of an iron sword and then became a blacksmith. His task was to prepare the world for people. He taught humans how to make tools, which in turn enabled them to grow food and build shelters. The San people (Bushmen) of the south say that creation was the work of a spirit named Dxui, who was alternately a man and many other things, such as a flower, a bird, or a lizard.
Myths from across Africa tell how death came into the world. The supreme god meant for humans to be immortal, but through an unlucky mistake, they received death instead of eternal life. Some stories relate that the god told a cautious chameleon to carry the news of eternal life to earth, but a faster lizard with news of death arrived first. The Mende people of Sierra Leone say that a toad with the message "Death has come" overtakes a dog with the message "Life has come" because the dog stops to eat along the way.

Unless the universe always existed and just changes state every so often. Then it was never created at all.

And to they who do not believe in creationism, which I have no problem with though I happen to believe God or if you like an intelligent agency does exist as the universe is too elegant, you live at a time when the moon is just the right distance from the earth to appear the same size as the sun to our eye's at our perspective, If you take the circle of the earth and draw a box around it that perfectly fit's the circle of the earth within it then take the circle of moon and place the circle of the moon against the circle of earth (to relative scale of course) at one corner of the square the point of the corner is exactly at the center of the circle of the moon?.
Actually creationism is a valid view, It's interpretation though is often still open to debate and there is not one fixed view point over all.

So you can believe the universe always existed but
you refuse the same concept for a superior being.
How very biased?
