And if you say that robots build the robots, then who builds the robots that build the robots?

Well, obviously, people make the first one.

And it's close...check out RepRap, the 3D printer that makes a kit of itself.

Robot God created the robots, in it's own image.

"Robot's Return" (1938) by Robert Moore Williams involves a team of robots searching the galaxy for the home world of their original builders. They find Earth and discover their original builders were organic and not robot. It's only available in the huge anthology "Adventures in Time and Space" by McComas and Healy. Lots of used copies are available at Amazon.
