Energy cannot be created or destroyed it only changes form. I think the problem is in the definition of the word. It simply means everything, at least according to a quarter of the world, Einstein called the universe God, so do Buddhists, if they believe in God at all, and Hindus, Confucianists, Taoists, and more. It is eternal, and I expect it just goes in an endless circle, or you would have the problem of causality, like what caused the big bang? I say the big crunch, and it could never have had a beginning. That's a hard thing to imagine, but even with a powerful, supernatural force being that energy, it still doesn't mean that it could have any knowledge of anything, with nothing to gain knowledge from.
