“After billions and billions of years, the indefectible God of Intelligent Design may have evolved into the on-second-thought Jehovah who used a flood to get rid of those He regarded as unintelligently designed. . . .”—General Theosophy
The Lord can pass an elephant through the eye of a needle. He can do whatever He likes.
The 1 thing that existed first, the source, the beginning, the truth, God, by whatever word or name we care to assign it, is a determined thing.
This is a tough concept to grasp, we think of whatever it is that created us as some all powerful thing (and it is), but, it has no awareness, it has no intention, it has no feeling.

"All waters are brooded over by Nârâyana, but every kind of water is not fit for drink. Similarly, though it is true that the Almighty dwells in every place, yet every place is not fit to be visited by man. As one kind of water may be used for washing our feet, another may serve the purpose of ablution, and others may be drunk, and others again may not be touched at all; so there are different kinds of places. We may approach some, we can enter into the inside of others, others we must…Continue
