    He didn't come from nowhere, He has forever been.

    Our puny minds can't grasp something with no beginning or no end.

    Very good illustration of God being outside of time.

    Having agreed with the links about creation and and the failings of the doctrines of evolutionism -

    I did not see "God created time in Joh 38".

    Time allows there to be "sequence" and by extension "action".

    You can not "take an action" and still have a "time" BEFORE you took that action if there is no time. Neither can your action "change anything" because CHANGE requires two states in time.

    By definition alone - nothing can "happen" if there is no time - regardless of the power or the intellect required to make the thing "happen". That means "no deciding something" and no "choosing to do something".

    So the best you can is a "God came before time and space" or "time and.." something. Using the something like string theory you might propose that our Universe - the dimensions that we live in were created by God. But still in ALL universes - time has to exist for things to "happen".
