If God was all that existed back then, what disturbed the eternal equilibrium and compelled him to create? Was he bored? Was he lonely? God is supposed to be perfect. If something is perfect, it is complete--it needs nothing else. We humans engage in activities because we are pursuing that elusive perfection, because there is disequilibrium caused by a difference between what we are and what we want to be. If God is perfect, there can be no disequilibrium. There is nothing he needs, nothing he desires, and nothing he must or will do. A God who is perfect does nothing except exist. A perfect creator God is impossible.

I have to take issue with Leah's definition of eternity for this reason: If eternity has no beginning and no end, and there is a sinner who will not repent, therefore making him damned to spending eternity in hell, that eternity would have to have a beginning--the time of his death and/or judgement, right? Unless, of course, one still contends that time is merely a human concept, and it still stands that eternity is timeless and has no beginning or end. But that would then mean that the man had no choice whether to spend eternity in either heaven or hell, because, by the definition of eternity, if he spends his eternity in hell, he will have always been in hell. . . oh, my, but this gives me a headache.
