Ok, so I come in here from time to time and, for the most part, all I ever hear about is the God of the Bible/Koran/Torah vs. no god at all. So my question is why can't it be possible for an "evil" God to exist? Why is it that all I ever hear about is an omni-benevolent God, followed by reasons trying to justify why there are natural disasters, famine, innocent victims, etc. Why does no one ever bring up the possibility that "God" isn't omni-benevolent, or (gasp), just doesn't care? An apathetic God, or one who created us simply for his pleasure, for his enjoyment? How is that any more ridiculous than the idea of an omni-benevolent God who allows for tornados and tsunamis to exist? If anything, I would argue that this concept may even be more plausible.
