Answer --basicly he is everywhere.

First Answer:

While the Genesis account tells of the beginning of the earth and humans, God's activities before he began creating the heavens and the earth are not known. God is considered the Alpha & the Omega. The beginning and the end. Meaning he had no beginning. This is virtually impossible for human minds to comprehend because we all had a beginning. Therefore we cannot understand completely the vastness of Eternity. Although, if we believe that God was creative enough to create the universe, heavens, and earth; it is not entirely irrational to believe that he was busy doing other things that we are not aware of. There is knowledge untold in the workings of God. God more than likely created other galaxies, planets, etc. Although The Bible doesn't state when he created the angels, any reasoning person could reason that he created them sometime before the earth since they "applauded and cried out with joy" when God's earthly creation was complete. God was in the heavens with His angels and jinns before creating the earth, planets and anything else. From planet Kolob According to the Mormons, God came from Planet Kolob New answer He was in the same place he is now. We won't know until we have reached his level. Gods kingdon is NEAR the planet Kolob. Kolob is the governing star and governs all of the other planets and stars. New answer Let's tell the truth. The "mormon god" was once a moral man in their doctrine who ASCENDED into a God-Like state. That totally goes against the HOLY BIBLE in Genesis 1:1 IN THE BEGINNING GOD. It didn't say in the beginning was "God's Parents". They worship a "minor deity" or a demon who claims to be GOD was is NOT THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. ONLY GOD HIMSELF WAS AND THERE WAS NO OTHER. God created all the other creatures of the universe and HEAVEN which is HIS CHOSEN DWELLING PLACE.

Scientific View:

The Bible states categorically that God is Eternal. This does not mean, however, that God has always existed and always will. 'Eternal' means and has always meant 'existing outside of time' and that is exactly what both the Bible and science (forget the so-called conflict - it doesnt really exist, honestly!) both state and teach us. In Genesis it states 'In the beginning' - in the Hebrew this means 'at the beginning of time' - God created the heavens and the earth. Not that the 'heavens' were created first i.e. the galaxies, stars in them, our sun and then the earth - just as science confirms. In the scientific explanation - the 'Big Bang' which, let's be frank, is no more than a scientific term for the moment of Creation, the universe came into being - not only the universe but also time and space (if you believe Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity and Hawking's work). So if time itself came in existence at the Big Bang/Creation then, just as the Bible states, there was no 'before' creation in our sense. No 'before' existed. God existed, though, because God is eternal and outside the concept of time.

This eternality of God is difficult to grasp, but if you own a torch (flashlight) and switch it on, then the beam of light from it is also eternal (what a fitting analogy - God and Light!). Einstein and subsequent physicists proved that as things approach the speed of light time slows down for them until time actually stops at the speed of light. So for light, it has no concept of time as we do and, like God, is, in a sense, eternal. The eternality of God explains many things; it explains His ability to answer millions of prayers instantly - no 'stacking up in an IN tray' for prayer as there would be in our time-constrained state! Miracles can and do happen by God's will - he is not subject to the laws of nature, nor in the laws of cause and effect (a direct result of being 'in time') as we are. Prophesy - especially how God can know the future as well as the past, is a result of his eternal nature as he can see the whole of time stretched out in front of Him. Furthermore, we are told that God made us in His image - not simply as flesh-and-blood animals but also as eternal spiritual beings who, one day, will be with him, if we accept what Jesus did for us on the Cross. In the meantime, we have to be content with being constrained on earth, in time. In fact, the eternality of God can explain a great deal about Him and his relationship with us!

So to say 'what was there before Creation?' is as meaningless as saying 'what letter comes before 'A' in the alphabet?' There isn't one, and nor was there ever a 'before'. And Thank God for that - for if there was a 'before' then God would be diminished from His eternal omnipotent state into a time-constrained entity just like us.

Additional Comments:

Nowhere. Now, here. "(S)He" just is. Never comes nor goes.Just Is. Earth was never created. Nothis has been created. Creation would presume an objective time, an absolute time which God would be subjected to too. So, in that case God would not be Infinite anymore. Also, to really be infinite, Creator and Creation must be the SAME thing. If God (creator) is not the creation, in this case God is not infinite, as there is something which is not included in God. God came from people's mind.. I think people created him because they had the need to feel loved and protected by a superior being. Did God have a beginning?

Another Answer:

Ps. 90:2: �Before the mountains themselves were born, or you proceeded to bring forth as with labor pains the earth and the productive land, even from time indefinite to time indefinite you are God.� Is that reasonable? Our minds cannot fully comprehend it. But that is not a sound reason for rejecting it. Consider examples: (1) Time. No one can point to a certain moment as the beginning of time. And it is a fact that, even though our lives end, time does not. We do not reject the idea of time because there are aspects of it that we do not fully comprehend. Rather, we regulate our lives by it. (2) Space. Astronomers find no beginning or end to space. The farther they probe into the universe, the more there is. They do not reject what the evidence shows; many refer to space as being infinite. The same principle applies to the existence of God.

Other examples: (1) Astronomers tell us that the heat of the sun at its core is 27,000,000 degrees Fahrenheit (15,000,000� C.). Do we reject that idea because we cannot fully comprehend such intense heat? (2) They tell us that the size of our Milky Way is so great that a beam of light traveling at over 186,000 miles per second (300,000 km/sec) would require 100,000 years to cross it. Do our minds really comprehend such a distance? Yet we accept it because scientific evidence supports it. Which is more reasonable�that the universe is the product of a living, intelligent Creator? or that it must have arisen simply by chance from a nonliving source without intelligent direction? Some persons adopt the latter viewpoint because to believe otherwise would mean that they would have to acknowledge the existence of a Creator whose qualities they cannot fully comprehend. But it is well known that scientists do not fully comprehend the functioning of the genes that are within living cells and that determine how these cells will grow. Nor do they fully understand the functioning of the human brain. Yet, who would deny that these exist? Should we really expect to understand everything about a Person who is so great that he could bring into existence the universe, with all its intricate design and stupendous size? God doesn't exist as anything but a character in mythology. We also didn't come from nothing, it's called a singularity. Perhaps a relevant quote (approximated): "If people are willing to believe god has always existed or spontaneously came into existence and then created the universe, why can't they conceive of the universe always existing or spontaneously comming into existence? Why not just cut god out of the equation?

Another Answer:

From my research I am convinced that God was a creation of man. I believe that God came from the imagination of the inquisitive minds of leaders who were searching for answers to the challenging questions of their subjects. God therefore was created in the image and likeness of the political/religious leaders. The reason why some people don't believe in God is mainly because of all the inconsistencies and falsehoods of religious scriptures. Religious leaders have used their dogma to oppress, victimize and terrorize those who refuse to subscribe to their particular brand of bigotry.

Another Comment:

Jesus and John the Baptist were classic victims of tyrannical bigotry from greedy selfish religious charlatans.

Every single Nano particle of this universe has intelligence and as a result they can be manipulated. Whenever you can find the secrete to manipulating these particles then you can find the secrete to the universe and to the reality if the entity called GOD. There is no real/tangible proof that there is such an entity as God, who resembles a man and has the same emotional characteristics and prejudices. There is absolutely no tangible proof that there is such an entity as Satan either. There is absolutely no tangible evidence that there is a Heaven or Hell.

Science can prove that the Earth and the other planets orbits around the Sun and not as some religious scriptures testified that the Sun and Moon orbits the Earth. Science can prove that the earth is round and not flat as some religions testified. Through the practicality of science we can see far off galaxies but no imaginary place called Heaven or Hell.

If you want to see Hell then just look at some of the socially depraved countries of the world. There is no Hell at the center of the earth either just molten rocks (Magma/lava). The idea of Hell probably came from the vision of underground pits of Lava.

Another View:

The concept of God's Mysterious ways is a convenient excuse of religious fanatics for creating Fairytales. It is no different from parents who make up stories in response to their children's questions about the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus. The fairy-tale regarding the birth of Jesus was copied from Greek Mythology where Hercules was the son of a mortal woman and the God Zeus. It is as sad as finding out that there really is no Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. It demonstrates that people are growing up to the scientific realities of life and leaving the Fairy Tales and Fantasies to the moviemakers. Absolutely no individual involved in organized religion has a conclusive answer to the question of proving the existence of God! Many religious zealots will venture to market their particular brand of theology in an attempt to create a convincing argument that their dogma contains the only credible proof that the God-Fantasy is true.

Another Answer;

If something exists then it can be realized/experienced and proven. For something to be discovered it has to exist. Why not ask God ?

Additional Comments:

All conjectures, no proofs. Quick definitions (conjecture)noun: reasoning that involves the formation of conclusions from incomplete evidence

God has always exsisted, so that ? doesn't make sense. He was, and is, and will always be. He is eternal. There are ?'s and misteries we will never understand now, but the day will come where everything will be cleared. That's the point God is God.We are the created ones, not Him.Don't question more than what is possibly to be known. In the beginning there was no God. Like all human inventions, SHE was created some 10,000 years ago ( relatively quite recent when compared to the age of our planet) to meet human necessity! SHE is one the greatest, if not the greatest, human creations. Even if true, every reason that has been given for the existence of God could just as equally apply to Ahura Mazda, Brahma, P'an Ku, Nut or any other creator god. So, if we ever found proof that there was a creator god, we would still have to find a way to decide which god it was.

Another View:

He was in space, but not the conventional space as you know it. Before creation there was a roughly spherical light form out in infinite nothingness which was the essence of what you call God. This essence created all that is because, let's face it, who wants to be alone in empty space for an eternity. He has since manifested himself on Earth in multiple forms. God, most literally, refers to one being at first, who has since manifested himself in multiple beings all derived from this original source of light, including Jesus of Nazareth. So, Creator = God = Light. This makes sense because in many creation stories, God is said to have created the Heavens and the Earth in the beginning. What existed before the beginning? Nothing. Nothing and God. What existed before God? This is a difficult question for humans to grasp because it implies an infinite regress, but the most frequently cited conventional religious answer is that nobody created God.

Answer also: Jehovah God, who is a Spirit has always existed. Jehovah is fittingly and uniquely called the Creator and he was alone before creation had a beginning. Genesis 1:1, which says : "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." (Psalms 90:1,2) Jehovah's first creation was his only-begotten Son. (John 3:16), the beginning of the creation by God." (Revelatiom 3:14) This one, "the firstborn of all creation," was used by Jehovah in creating all other things, those in the heavens and those upon the earth, the things visible and the things invisible." (Coll 1:15-17) See Jehovah's Witnesses official website for more information.

AnswerThis can be answered from the perspective of belief. If you believe that God created heaven and earth, then man could not have been here before that time. But if you believe that God created heaven and earth just a few thousand years ago, then most certainly humans were here long before then. So, it is a matter of what you wish to believe.

The Bible says God created Adam and Eve from the earth. This indicates that they were not spirits in heaven before they were on earth.

Yes, he was. He was the creator of all mankind, and was thus alive before anyone else. For he created the Earth, people, animals, and everything on this Earth. God is the only mighty god!

Jehovah God did not 'discover' earth. According to the Bible, He 'created' it. He created it in what the Bible calls: "in the beginning" (Gen 1:1) Of course God existed BEFORE the beginning. God is 'eternal', meaning he has no beginning. Therefore God has no Creator. God creates various 'beginnings'. The very first thing God ever created, was 'things like himself'. God is a spirit, and he created 'spirit-beings' like himself. They're called 'angels'. Even they were created before the 'heaven and earth'. They were created before there was anything 'physical'. God and the angels exist 'seperate' and 'outside' the physical Universe. They are not dependent on light, nor heat. God created these things from himself.

According to the Bible the second (2nd) thing God created was the earth. However God had created several things before the actual accounts of the bible. He, God, may have created the angels after he created the son of God (Christ Jesus).
