Nobody made the world. It wasn't a 'person' or a 'being' or even a 'divine power'. The world was made by natural processes over billions of years. Why? is a very unanswerable question. Why are there stars? Why are there planets? Why is there a universe? Why are we here? Because we are part of the natural universe, that's why.
Your assumption was that there was a maker to the universe.
The answer is simple depending on your religious beliefs - either there was a maker or there wasn't. If you follow religious precepts then you'll say the god of your choice (or the creation myth of your choice).
If you're like most people, however, you'll accept that the Earth was a result of the big bang theory in a universe that is constantly expanding from it.
It is my belief. I believe that God created us people and made the world for us to live in, including all that is on the universe. There are so many questions on how we exist and I believe that God only has the answer to these questions.
Did you consider the second part of the question? Why God? Why do you believe he/she/it is eternal? Why is there a god? and just Why in general would he make a small planet in a small solar system that supports small humans?
The Jatravartid people of Viltvodle Six firmly believe that the entire Universe was, in fact, sneezed out of the nose of a being called the Great Green Arkleseizure. They live in fear of the time they call ‘The Coming of the Great While Handkerchief"

If the Christian god is omnipotent then why would it need to order the murder of it's son so that it can forgive? No Christian can answer this because it is utter nonsense. But I challenge any christian to give it a try.
