God the Creator
I find it very difficult to believe in the existence of God as a literal Creator of cosmos.
The title of Demiurge has been given as a name for the Maker or Creator of the world in Platonism. In some Gnostic texts, the Demiurge is conceived of as a being subordinate to the Supreme Being, and sometimes as the author of evil.
I can accept the existence of God at the root of my consciousness - That which is experienced as the Source of Being: the Supreme Being in other words. However, the idea of God as a literal Creator of all "external things" as well as myself, existing "out there", I find very hard to accept and believe in.
How can I convince myself that such an Entity (or Non- or Super- Entity philosophically speaking) exists?
[If God "exists" then presumably He is not "God".]
