That is an interesting response, as I can see some obvious problems with Absalom Station being created before or after the Gap.
Before: That would imply that somebody is capable of creating Absalom Station in the "now" of the Pathfinder universe.
It's thousands of years in the future. The only thing the AI god is known to have given mortals as a gift is hyperspace travel. Everything else (space ships, space stations, high tech weapons, etc.) has to be presumed to be native tech developed naturally. I have no problem seeing Absalom Station as a huge mortal built project that happened to sit directly above the original Absalom, connected by a space elevator. After Golarion disappeared the gods cut the tether and let it float loose, maybe with a few former Golarion inhabitants teleported aboard.
