Consider how vain, how puffed-up these mortals be when they declare that nothing less than the One Infinite Power--the Absolute Itself--deliberately incarnated as man to help them.
Surely if it had such intent it would act more in accord with its own laws of progressive development and send here another mortal but a more advanced one.
Such a man could be found on a more advanced planet.
And this is what happened.
Jesus came here from a higher planet.
There was no need for God to intervene directly.
