Question: I was chatting with a friend when she asked, ‘If there is no God, where do we come from?’ How should I answer?

Answer: For the Buddhist perspective, you can answer in this way – ‘If we came from a God, where did that God come from? If there can be a God who did not come from some other creator, why must we come from some creator other than ourselves?‘ Here are more useful links to share:
