The "I don't know" option was deliberately omitted. If you had to guess one of the options, which one would it be? Note that I am not just talking about our neck of the woods. I'm talking about everything that ever existed, in any "dimension." My intuition leads me to believe in an infinite regression of causes. Each event has a prior cause; each thing that was created was created by forces/things/events that precedeed it, and if something exists without having been created then it must have always existed. Personally, I think that the second option, in which God is said to have always existed, is essentially a special case of the third option, but I included it seperately because so many people have that specific belief. What do you think?
