Honestly, there are two major things that I have issue with in that theory.
1) How is a consciousness created? How does it begin to manipulate the energy? It seems to me like there is no logical way to answer these questions and others like them using standard logic and science.
2) I am highly resistant to any thought that claims to put us as being a part of God or gods ourselves. Satanism is summed up in "Be your own god" or just do whatever you want. These types of thoughts lead to very selfish and proud worldviews and attitudes.
Just my opinion on that one though, obviously I would disagree with it due to my own monotheistic (specifically Christian) beliefs.

If God could create the universe, the He must be an infinite being. We cannot understand the infinite as our own understanding is finite. He could have told us these things, but it would be like trying to teach quantum physics to the average two year old.
However, if you don't believe in God, you could always say that he was "made up."
Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said ,
“Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things
ye are too Superstitious.
For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions,
I found an altar with this Inscription,
TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.
Whom therefore ye Ignorantly worship,
Him I declare unto you.
God that made the World and all things therein,
seeing that He is Lord of Heaven and Earth,
dwelleth Not in Temples made with hands;
Neither is worshipped with men’s hands,
as though He needs anything, seeing He giveth to All LIFE,
and breath, and ALL things;
And hath made of one blood All nations of men
For to dwell All the face of the Earth,
And hath determined the times before appointed,
And the bounds of their habitation;
That they should seek the Lord,
If haply (by chance) they might feel after Him,
and find Him, though He be Not far from everyone of us:
For in Him we Live and move, and have our being;
as certain also of your own poets have said,
for we are also His Offspring.
Forasmuch then as we are the Off Spring of God,
we ought Not to think the Godhead is like unto gold,
or silver, or stone, graven by art or man’s device.
And the times of this Ignorance God winked at;
but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:
Because He hath appointed a day,
in which He will judge the World in righteousness
by that man He hath ordained;
wherefore He hath given assurance unto All men,
in that He hath raised Him from the dead.
And when they heard of the Resurrection of the dead,
Some mocked: and other said,
“We will hear thee again of this matter.

Many of us on these threads debate how the universe and how it was made. I'm just curious though, if God (The Creator) made the universe, how did God come into existence. I'm not sure if anyone has asked this yet, but I just decided to throw it out there, please give me your thoughts, whether you believe God created the universe or not; I am interested in knowing what you think.

What a pile of nonsense.
The probability and evidence that the universe was created by:
Is exactly the same as if the universe was created by:

God is a creation of man, an idea not a reality.
Anyway, can't stop, it's prayer night in the Holy Church of the Crustacean. Catch you later!
