If a person believes in “a” God, and (s)he does not believe that the universe is the creation of God, did God evolve from the cosmic dust too? Or was God a byproduct of “the big bang” and if so how sure could we be that only “one God” sprang forth from that event?

Let's define "God" first.

Here is how my dictionary defines Him :

"the supernatural being conceived as the perfect, eternal,omnipotent and omniscient originator and ruler of the universe and all things; the object of worship in monotheistic religions"

So, to say that you believe in God and say that (s)He did not create the universe is to redefine the word "God". Which is to say in Christian parlance -- you are creating God in your image.
