The god of creationism is a devil-god, not the judeo-christian god.

Presumably one of the logical starting points for Creationist Thinking is like Newton's: Where there is evident order, there must have been SomeThing that put it in order: or Where there is a Clock, there must have been a ClockMaker...
Ye Olde Evidence from Design theory.
However this has nothing to do at all whatsoever with the clan god of the Jews who wants to exterminate all the Amalekites and who wants to genocide the Gigu#es because they were in the socalled Promised Land first and were...umm..in the way of the socalled Chosen People that we find in legendary mythological documents like "the Bible" who were written by persons who believed in a Flat Earth at the Center of a Domed Universe (remember the Dome (Heb. "Raqia'q" in Genesis chapter 1:3 which the King James Crew called the "Firmament"? Well, it doesn't exist any more than the Cheese on the Moon.
And the Creationist myths in Genesis (yes, there are at least TWO if you compare Gen 1:1 to 2:4a to Gen 2:4b through end of chapter 4, which by the way, DON'T MATCH EACH OTHER) are not Science in the modern sense but poetical imagery, probably of a liturgical nature like the ones (see Psalm 29) at the Fertility New Year Festivals in Canaan celebrating the 7 Peals of Baal creating the earth and the sky.
I mean, since when does VEGETATION come before the STARS the SUN and the MOON? Only in Genesis, it seems !!
But the idea of a Creator Mind to all the MultiVerses does not necessarily mean we have to drag the myths of the Jews into the discussion, just because Christians are unaware of other creation myths (more than 5000 of them) and alternate ways to explain what we see (or even remotely detect) around us.
To say that all the Multiverses (e.g. in String Theory) in existence were created out of a single Divine Mind Energy (like a big Bang etc.) is still logical enough----- just be careful not to confuse that idea with the two Hebrew Myths of Creation set forth by semi nomadic priestly groups who had a theological agenda to support and had to steal (or more politely, "borrow") their alphabet from the Phoenecians because they had no written language of their own....
