    Let us assume that the Abrahamic God exists. He's defined as being a permanent entity. So, if the Universe were to have come into existence in 4004 BC or 13.72 billion years, what was he doing ALL this time before. In fact, this time is protracted ad infinitum because God has lived for infinity?

    It's merely a question, not some form of berating of religion.

    He's omniscient, therefore he is aware of everything since the primordial broth of the dawn of time. He wouldn't need any ideas, he knows all in accordance to the Abrahamic creed.

    I know. Nevertheless, it's galvanising to hear people's opinions are they are manifold.

    He spent all his time holding it in, until finally, The Big Bang?

    Dubious because the topic was alluding to the concept that there may be other civilisations/species God has created who are/were similar/more powerful that humans. They too could be/have been humans.
