What makes you think we're not slaves already?

Thanks and I do appreciate your measured and informed response but this is where my interpretation differs from yours. I cannot believe in a God who has created everything...the whole Universe...and then chose the Earth as a special place for life. It does not make sense to me.
Another race from off-planet arriving here, possibly terraforming the planet and then creating subservient beings for whatever reason, I can cope with that. They may have even used the existing stock of the planet and modified to suit their purposes. For what it is worth, I believe that humankind will itself have that capability in the distant future and may do the exact same thing on some other planet.
That I find more believable than an all-seeing, omnipotent being lording it over all creation.
