God is not the opposite of evil. The opposite of evil is good. Defining God as wholly good does not make God the whole of good. It is not necessary for God to exist for evil to exist.
God cannot be both good and omnipotent. The desiderata are mutually incompatible.
You've already been given explanations about what are subjective morals. You just disagree with them based on your subjective opinion. I'm done here because this thread was finished on page 1.
Why does God need to exist for evil to exist... unless said god is the author of evil?
You simply make statements you aren't giving any reason to believe what you are saying is true.
Certain things are necessary for evil to actually exists. One of those things being some agent with intrinsic value rather than instrumental value.
Okay give me reasons to believe this?
Because evil requires the existence of Good, but Good does not require the existence of evil.
Evil is the lack of something that is. For example fairness and unfairness. You can have fairness without unfairness. Modesty and immodesty. Honest and dishonest.
one can not exist without the other in all your examples... You can not have fairness without unfairness, both exist as a possibility, but only one is practiced at one time
