Re: A simple answer to a complex question.

The sum total of this convergent infinite series can be taken to be god. Thus no contradiction or problem exists for the existence of a god that created the complex universe.
It is a contradiction for an infinite series of gods creating other gods to claim to be a single, "One True God". It would make more sense for such a being, many treated as one, to call itself "Legion".
Furthermore, the problem with an infinite chain of gods is not it existing within a finite period of time. Rather, the problem is there is nowhere for it to begin. Claiming an infinite series of gods created the universe is less reasonable than claiming an infinite series of universes lead to the creation of the present universe. Occam's Razor would tend to strip out the unnecessary god(s).
