This may be related to a previous question about the first god who began eternal progression. This is something I've really been wondering for a while.
If the Almighty God began life as a man, he must have been part of this universe. As part of this universe, it would've been impossible to create the universe--since that requires a deity that it outside the universe.
Do Mormons believe that the universe existed before God? Or that God existed as God before the universe began (and therefore is one who didn't ascend to godhead, but was always a deity)?
In essence, either the universe always was and there was a first god who created everything (related to this question) or there is a god who existed, as god, before the universe. Yet the Mormons teach that God was once a man. So, who created the universe?
