But there are no benefits to natural disasters and the like, and
that's what we are talking about.  How handy that you've deleted
the context above, so that fact would get lost.  Your god CHOSE
to make a world full of pain and sorrow with no appreciable
benefits.  He's an asshole.  So, quit changing the context in order
to make him appear to be otherwise.

You're changing the context again.  That's dishonest.  Does your
god approve of you lying for his sake?  My standards are apparently
higher than your god's, because I DON'T approve of your lying.  Not
for a minute.

I am not talking about MY choices; I'm talking about the choice
HE made.  He's an asshole, and so are you.
