Bertrand Russell said that earlier he believed in God but then he thought that if everything is created by God then who created God? When He couldn’t reach to a conclusion then he stopped believing in God.
Guess what was his amended belief about how everything was created?
He later believed that the basis for whole universe is matter.
Interesting. Isn’t?? Earlier he stopped believing God because of the question as to who created God and when asked from where matter came into existence? He said matter was always there.
That’s what we believe about God that He was there always.
Why Bertrand Russell didn’t believe in the ever living God and he believed in ages old dead and dumb matter?

I agree that if we start thinking that since when God is there, we get confused. The answer that God was always there is not satisfying to our logic. But I think that this is something beyond human mind to digest. Like our fastest computer processors go in hang state when struck in infinite loop.
