Well, pete,the angry/callous/uncaring God, if there is a God, is an unassailable fact. All that death, disease, pain, fear, predation, starvation and waste of life in the struggle for existence condemn him immediately. After all, he's all-powerful so he didn't have to organise things that way. On the other hand, his grace and forgiveness can be no more than a speculation. When are we going to see it, and, when we do, will he be able to tell us why he's so partial in the way he doles it out?
