If "God" was an ever evolving spiritual force of "goodness" would it help alleviate some of the free will problems?

Omnipotence means having the power to do anything he chooses to do. If God is omnipotent he can make creatures with free will if he chooses to do so.

The information in ancient libraries came from real minds of real people. The far more complex information in cells came from the far more intelligent mind of God.

No, He cannot. God cannot deny His omnipotence.

Giving up your omnipotence and subjugating yourself to freewill denies omnipotence.

Pretty much this. If God was able to create a being of free will then he'd would cease to be omniscient. Which brings into question his omnipotence..

If God is omnipotent, can he create a boulder he can't lift? Paradox ftw.
