Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 09, Text 10

We may find Krishna’s pastimes of magically killing demonsfantastic.
Yes, they are fantastic, in the sense that they demonstrate his capacities to effortlessly accomplish feats that would be impossible for us humans. Krishna’s deeds may be fantastic, but they are not fantasy. They are not figments of a mythological imagination on the riot; they are the demonstrations of a fundamental philosophical reality. If Krishna’s deeds seem incredible, that’s how they are meant to be. After all, he’s God; he’s the supreme controller and is absolutely free to do what he likes.

If we find this simple logic of God’s omnipotence questionable, that’s because our intellects have been subconsciously taken hostage by the currently fashionable worldview of naturalism. This worldview grants God only a token existence; its worshipable supreme deity is nature and its laws. It allows God to exist, subject to the inviolable condition that he behave himself properly, meaning that he not violate the laws of nature. If he dares to transgress the sacred laws of nature, he is at once banished into the Siberia of mythology.
