Therefore, any god postulated must also have a cause for it's existence, another greater god, maybe? In the end its turtles, all the way down. Unless you want to employ special pleading.

catholic scientist writes:

You could postulate a god that always existed and therefore did not begin to exist. Just sayin'.

Special pleading again. Everything, except a god....

However, you could postulate that matter and energy always existed. We have evidence for the existence of matter and energy. Nothing for the existence of a god.
