What if god messed up?
What if the eternal, infinite, omnipotent, omniscient creator of the universe messed up when he created this universe?
After all, there are atheists in this universe - clearly there wouldn't be atheists if God were omnipotent.
There have been thousands of conceptions of God - Odin, Zeus, Allah, Yahweh, Shiva, Flying Spaghetti Monster ... That's needless unless there's no God, or unless God screwed up.
Would an omniscient God have allowed the Edsel to go into production? Or put nipples on men? Or allowed the release of the movie Ishtar? Or given Pat Robertson a microphone? These things are inconceivable with an omniscient, omnipotent God at the helm. Would God allow the existence of the leisure suit? No way.
Or maybe he screwed up?
What other answer could there be?
