One cannot rule out which god or goddess it would be. If accepted, this still leads to a question of what brought about that supernatural being? If one postulates that said supernatural being exists forever, that is an unsupported scientific explanation with as much value as saying the supernatural being really came from Ozzy Osbourne or Elvis Presley. In other words, you can claim it was a supernatural being but you cannot ascribe any qualities or characteristics to it because they have no value. Thus, the statement of "some supernatural being whose characteristics and qualities we don't know" isn't a scientific answer nor is it a good answer.
