Mike, That reminds me of a philosophy class I took back in the 70's. Somehow we got off on the subject of God and creation, and the professor snapped his finger. He asked several of the more vocal class membesr when they though "the beginning" was. After fielding several answers, he said that everything started when he snapped his finger; there was nothing before that. When asked how he came to that conlusion and if he could prove it, he replied that we (humans) do it all the time in stories and movies. Any Creator that could come up with what is, has to be smart enough to provide everyone with a perfect background and memory, and a "stage" with all the "props" in a convincing format.
PS, I tried this answer once...........never again!!!!!
