God or gods are real. What they want, who knows? Religions speculate a lot on the subject. I believe in the Jewish/Christian/Islamic god. That does not make me right, I just real it does. The existence of a god is incontestable.
St Thomas Aquinas in his 5 proofs of god described it well, either the universe has always existed, came from something else, or was created. If you accept the first, fine. If you accept the second, it just pushes the question backwards and is essentially a version of the first, so fine. If you accept the third you are accepting the existence of a god. The same arguments to be assigned to where god came from only all three point to a god so for that it is cyclic logic and therefore invalid.
The reason I consider Aquinas's arguments as valid is not where the world/universe came from but rather where did life come from. I wrote a response discussing life elsewhere on blurt it (philosophy-religion.blurtit.com/4411070/why-do-people-believ).
The steady state theory of the universe, that is to say the theory the universe has always existed has been universally abandoned by all scientific theories. This means life could not have always existed. Even if you accept the universe came from something else and can be pushed back infinity in time such that the matter/energy that makes up the universe has always existed, with the universe coming into existence especially as described by the Big Bang theory, life did not exist at that moment. Therefore life came about within the universe. As described in my referenced article, life is not unlikely even given the trillions or more of astronomical bodies, it is not improbable, it is not near impossible, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to occur naturally. It required a deliberate act.
Please note that the article does not even begin to indicate the actual odds against life. There are literally hundreds of major biochemical systems within even the simplest of living organisms. The computations were for just one part of one system. And as I said randomly it might be possible for any single DNA strand or RNA strand or polypeptide or any lipid or other component to be created by natural means but for all the components to be created all in the same place and at the same time in the exact ratios needed and to be enclosed and segregated such that the biochemical chain of reactions we call life could take place is impossible.
Oh and I have read the theories that life started as a short chain retro virus. Possibly. But a retro virus can not reproduce. It does not have any metabolic pathways. It depends solely upon the pathways of what ever LIVING cell it enters. That requires some other complete system. Maybe the retro virus did come first, but it was not alive (depending on your definition of living, it is not alive as it cannot reproduce) until the living cell was subsequently appeared. Under natural circumstances a single retro virus without any form of host will eventually be broken down.
There is a god or gods. They may or may not care about us. They may or may not even know we exist, life itself may be some unnoticed side affect of something they did eons ago. If life on the earth is deliberate, we may actually be nothing more than a petri dish for making a vaccine or biological weapon. As to whether any god desires worship, we cannot really know only think and/or believe. As to whether any god has established rules for our lives, the same.
I choose to believe that a least one god "created" us deliberately and that it cares what happens to us. How you choose to view the gods is your choice, but I consider you are probably ignorant of biology and biochemistry if you consider life as occurring completely naturally.
