Because it's much simpler to assume that the world is eternal. The hypothesis of Creator explains nothing. It simply pushes the PROBLEM one floor upstairs! It's futile and redundant. Can God create Himself? He must. Because God is not just any creator. God, by definition, is an Absolute Creator. The Absolute Creator, who cannot create Himself, is a contradiction in terms. But that presents at once a thorny and unresolvable dilemma. Whether God can or cannot create Himself, a believer must land himself upon one of the two horns of this DILEMMA: God can create Himself out of NOTHING. Therefore, NOTHINGNESS is greater than Him. Or God cannot create Himself out of NOTHING. Therefore, He is not absolute. He is relative, weak, and completely redundant. In many respects, the idea of God is very similar to the idea of a little spot, which is completely black and completely white at the same time! Such a spot cannot exist as a real possibility, because it is self-contradictory. Every thing whose concept is contradictory does not exist. The concept of God is contradictory. Therefore, God does not exist. In short, the idea of God is self-contradictory, and logically unfounded. Accordingly, it's false. To do away with it, its self-contradiction is enough. No further disproof is required. So why do people claim from time to time that 'God' cannot be proved or disproved scientifically? The only explanation of such an obvious fallacy is that 'Homo sapiens' by nature is a social animal and always ready to do anything to please inmates and get along with them even on the expense of reason and logic. The last refuge for the folks of faith to save their 'Eternal God' from the ravages of logic and reason is to suppose that either He is timeless or He is living outside time all by Himself! Nice try! But it doesn't help them at all. To say that God is outside of time is logically equivalent to and the same as saying that He does not exist. moreover, getting rid of time is absolutely impossible. And even when you deny time in words, you affirm it logically in a big way. The reason for this absolute impossibility is that the flow of time forms a homogeneous continuum of all rates from the infinitely small to the infinitely large all at once. And each rate of time flow implies the rest as a necessary consequence. Take as an example the ordinary pendulum clock! It has three hands that run at different rates. These three hands of the clock are only a partial snapshot of the actual flow of time. The second hand implies on its side an infinite series of hands that run at faster and faster rates until end up with the moment hand where the rate of time flow is infinite. The hour hand of the clock, also, implies, on its side, an infinite series of hands which run at slower and slower rates and have as their limit the eternity hand which does not move at all. Thus there is no escape from time. And life of God outside time is meaningless. In fact, time is an essential attribute of God. No time; no God, but the reverse is not true. That is to say that there is always time whether there is God or not. Finally, we should not forget that 'God' is, also, an ideal. In other words, the idea of 'God' is the model and the blueprint according to which you would certainly construct yourself, if you were given the power to re-design and build yourself from scratch. In this sense, even though God has no basis in reality, as an ideal is absolutely perfect and useful and you should keep Him as a guiding star and blueprint for impoving yourself at all levels.
