You'all are missing the turning point in Beyond This Horizon, something that Heinlein put in all his novels.
Halfway through the book there's this odd 'out of body' musing by someone that's just plain bored ... and decides to change the rules.
God?

In descriptions of the world's governing body there's an elderly lady who sits and knits. No one minds, because everyone knows she can follow two trains of thought at once.
No one can ever remember her being wrong.
God?

At the beginning of Genesis there are an odd couple of paragraphs where God speaks to the 'others' and decides to create humanity so that God may know others.

I think the entire key and center of BTH is the odd pause in the midddle, after which eveything changes.
