God is, has always been, and will always be, for he is the "I Am." Answer
Since God is the creator of all things, before creation there was only God.
Before God and Creation were invented, there were thousands of other gods, beliefs and religions.
Before God there were no "other gods,beliefs and religions" there was Just God and creation by the way creation and GOd was not invented God is the alpha and the omega the begining and the end.
Answer in Genesis 1 verse 26
26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, [a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
The keywords are "Let us and our". This proves God was not alone in existence, there were others in His court.

There are 2 biblical sources of information on the creation of the world in Genesis.
- In Genesis 1:1 to 2:4a ( up to first sentence of 2:4) there was a pre-existing watery chaos. The ocean was already present and a wind moved across the surface. The seas rested on the dry land, which appeared on day 3 when God gathered the waters together.
- Genesis 2:4b to 2:15 is actually the older account in the
Judaic religion and says that there was pre-existing dry land, but
Yahweh had yet to make it rain for plants to grow. A spring arose
and God took some moist clay and made Adam. In both creation
stories, the basics were already there - the waters, the dry land,
the wind and therefore the air. Many experts in Hebrew have
carefully examined the texts and confirm that this is what they
say. The biblical creations were not ex nihilo.
Of course, science now gives us an alternative explanation for the origins of the world, which does not require a Creator, but still leaves open the option to believe in God. For more information, please visit: http://christianity.answers.com/theology/the-story-of-creation
