He was with the Father before the world began (as the Word and not Jesus) and the world was created in the beginning. It clearly says at John 1 in the beginning was the Word and not Jesus. I am reading it perfectly and not inferring it with my biased opinion of what it means.LOL! Your post does a nice job of deliberately avoiding the honest reading and understanding of John 1:1-3.
As for "the other thing" - LOL! Your posts continue to show either a glaring dishonesty or an extremely sad inability when it comes to reading comprehension. I am very content to let readers come to their own idea as to which. Anyone who has ever honestly studied the Prologue of the Gospel of John understands that A) It is about Jesus Christ, and B) the phrase "In the Beginning" shows that the Word, who is Jesus Christ was already with God when all things began. Your idea that "there was no documented Son of God until the Word became flesh" reflects (again) either deliberate dishonesty or pitiful inability in terms of reading comprehension. The Apostle John himself, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, wrote and documented that the Word/Christ most certainly and most definitely existed with the Father LONG before He became Incarnate. He was already with the Father before the world ever began.
