So I think along that theory that our God must have been created by a bigger God.
And that God was created by an even bigger God ... and so forth in creationism to infinity.
So our God was waiting to be created by a bigger God.
He didn't just evolve or appear - God was created too.
Then he created our universe, which has infinite cycles.
It explodes from a tiny point and reduces back to that eventually, and then it repeats.
That's some scientific theory I saw.
They said the big bang was a hit and miss between two dimensions, like two waving sheets that happen to collide every few billion years.
When they do collide it all expands, and eventually it all contracts.
Then it rests and starts again.
In Hindu thought this is not so strange.
Everything in the material universe is a cycle.
The God-head is the creator and destroyer of worlds and universes.

The theory you give about the cyclical nature of all creation, Gods of those regions and their 'pecking order' makes perfect sense to me, and is
exactly how it is explained according to the philosophy or science of the soul which I follow.
Everything that is has been. Millions of times. And will be again.
Where you say (in one of your later posts) something in the line of, "we will laugh at ourselves when we realise how very little understanding we
have about the entire God situation" it sounds to me like one of the statements closest to the truth made in this thread. We are utterly ignorant of
it all. Even though scientists and religions claim to be so advanced, they truly have but a grain of knowledge... if that.
Surely we cannot expect to use intellect which is totally bound to this material world to try and reason about something that is of a totally
different nature (spirit). How typical of man, to want to view Him as if though He Himself is a man, confined to laws, rules and limits! Sitting
there, waiting, contemplating, as if though he is a man on a chair with a watch on his arm.
It is also interesting that every region is but a bad/coarse reflection of the one that precedes it, loosing depth and beauty as one descends to the
level below. Based on this theory the Gods of the different regions are also ever more splendid as one ascends and finally.... Utter Infinite
Perfection.... incomprehensible to us.
While many do not seem to see the purpose of this topic and post, it must be said that man's fascination with his existence is a sure sign of a
spirit that wants to seek, grow, love, live, find, and dance. One that is intrigued by his circumstance in the big picture of it all will surely
advance at some point to where he finds that hidden treasure which lies within him.
