Do Buddhists believe in a God-creator and if not where does life come from?

A God-creator or a super being that designs, guides and manipulates this universe is not a Buddhist belief. The Buddha taught that there are multi-universes or multi-worlds and that all phenomena, including life, evolve and come to being when the right conditions surface and dissipate when such conditions subside. These events are inter-dependent and inter-reactive, a perpetual cycle with no beginning or end. The question of a creator, therefore, is a non-question in Buddhism. Creationism, however, stops asking "who then creates God"?
