Time and space are not discrete. They are extremes of the same phenomenon. Space is a function of the distribution of matter. The more dense the
matter, the more the space time continuum is distorted, which acts on less massive objects to draw them toward the more massvie object by because the
approacing object is drawn by the distortion of space and time. Time is a function of motion because without motion there would be no time. Time as
a concept is the means by which calibrate the inteval between events, just as the distance traveled is a function of space.
When we measure time, we do not do so directly, in the way that we measure space in terms of distance, which is a direct measurement. Time however
being a function of motion must be measured by calibrating motion. It may be a pendulum, a mainspring, the action of gravity on sand in an hour
glass, the rotation of the earth, the orbit of the earth, and the vibration of certain atoms when heated.
Clocks do not measure time anymore that does a merrygoround, the only difference between a clock and a merrygoround is the calibration.
So God did create time, but the time it took him to do so, is immaterial and non-sensical, because God is eternal and does not inhabit directly the
realms of space and time.
Your perception of time is highly subjective, and is not shared by all cultures. Time is what it is and although it is relative, the relativity we
perceive is more a matter of culture and personal experience.
