Sounds like fictional superstition to me, but sometimes I have felt that I always open a book right where I need answers. Like on the exact page.

It could be said "The aim of the theist is to unite with the creator, whilst the aim of the Dhamma practitioner is to be freed from the creator."
O house-builder, you are seen!
You will not build this house again.
For your rafters are broken and your ridgepole shattered.
My mind has reached the Unconditioned;
I have attained the destruction of craving.

Don't be afraid to create new things despite all this beginngless nature. You are the one who can do anything you have ever wanted to do from the viewpoint of Buddhist Metta.

Various schools of Buddhism believe(d) in Eternal Buddha, appealing to the statement of Gautama Buddha that he is the embodiment of Dhamma and embodiment of Brahma. That would be basically God. Personally, I believe in Adi-Buddha and Adi-Mara, as the only explanation of existence and it's nature that I find reasonable.

Whatever you do, don't believe in adi-mara. Evil is temporary. This existence came from good and will return to good, and all this Samsara stuff is just temporary my dear friend. There was once a time where there wasn't a Samsara, and eventually there will be a time like that again, forever.
