There is a supreme creator. Self creation is an impossibility on any molecular level. Things are simply shifted around in the universe we see. What comes after death? I don't know. Nobody does. But there is something.
God is known intuitively by all of us. Although revealed through Judao-Christian history, his divine moral law is written in our conciouses. It's all about striving to be perfected by allowing God's church/teachings cultivate us into more worthy souls. So that we can work for the eternal order of things.
Churches don't teach God's wisdom. They are simply places for some people to inject their personal inferences on others for money and power. Look at how many wars started by churches in the history. God taught us to love, not to kill.
