Creation easy for God
Easy - God spoke
capable of great acts of altruism
But ultimately selfish people
God's plan from the beginning
'people sinned ... so God'

God's plan in place from Day 1

God wanted us to choose, using our free will, rather than pre-programming us
No sin, no death - stay in the garden
Easy to make brilliant creatures
Mix and wait 13.7 billion years
In a selfish world
We can only survive if we're selfish
