Some of you shock me with the weirdness of your questions on religion, sorry to say. Why would the Bible have to say God was better or best? In comparison to what would he be better than? What in the world are you talking about the category of four? There are about 100 different words that are synonyms for "good", is the bible suppose to list them all? No one can be better than God, but some might say you can be equal.

Another point to add, sorry Mabus, I was agreeing with you until now.
Lucifer was cast into hell because he tried to be better than God. So, God did kind of make it clear who was best and better. There are a ton of other things you can easily use as contradictions to the bible though. I mean, it kind of produces its own hypocritical contradictions that you can just use. You don't even have to have originality, the bible fights itself.
Isa 14:4 you shall lift up this proverb against the king of Babylon (means confusion, not an individual i.e. "he let's confusion run his life"), and say: How the exacter, the gold (life) gatherer, has ceased!
Isa 14:5 Jehovah has broken the rod of the wicked, the staff of rulers (chiefs meaning: Last descendant, Heir)
Isa 14:6 who struck the peoples in wrath, a blow without turning away, ruling the nations in anger, dealing out persecution without restraint.
Isa 14:7 All the earth is at rest, quiet; they break forth into singing.
Isa 14:8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice over you; the cedars of Lebanon say, Since you have lain down, no one hewing will come up against us.
Isa 14:9 Sheol from below is stirred for you, to meet you at your coming; it stirs up the departed spirits for you, all the he goats (scape-goat=bear the sin in the wilderness=outside the body) of the earth. It has raised all the kings of the nations from their thrones.
Isa 14:10 All of them shall answer and say to you, Are you also made as weak as we? Are you likened to us?
Isa 14:11 Your majesty is lowered into Sheol; the noise of your harps. The maggot is spread under you; yea, the worms cover you.
Isa 14:12 Oh shining star, son of the morning, how you have fallen from the heavens (Haw-vah=to exist)! You weakening the nations (nations means kin=family), you are cut down to the ground.
Isa 14:13 For you have said In your heart, I will go up to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit in the mount of meeting, in the sides of the north.
Isa 14:14 I will rise over the heights of the clouds; I will be compared to the Most High.
Isa 14:15 Yet you shall go down to Sheol, to the sides of the Pit.
Isa 14:16 They that see you shall stare and closely watch you, saying, Is this the man who made the earth tremble, shaking kingdoms,
Isa 14:17 making the world like a wilderness, and who tore down its cities; he did not open a house for his prisoners?
Isa 14:18 All kings of nations, all of them lie in glory, each man in his house.
Isa 14:19 But you are thrown from your grave like a despised branch, like the covering of the slain, those pierced by the sword, those who go down into the stones of the Pit, like a dead body trampled under foot.
Isa 14:20 You shall not be united with them in burial, because you ruined your land; you have slain your people; the seed of evildoers shall never be named.
Isa 14:21 Prepare for the slaughter of his sons, for the iniquity of their fathers; that they may not rise and possess the land and fill the face of the earth with cities.
Isa 14:22 For I will rise against them, says Jehovah of Hosts, and I will cut off the name and remnant, the son and grandson, from Babylon, declares Jehovah.
Isa 14:23 Also I will make it a possession of the hedgehog and pools of water; and I will sweep it with the broom of ruin, says Jehovah of Hosts.
Isa 14:24 Jehovah of Hosts has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so it shall be; and as I have purposed, it shall rise up;
Isa 14:25 to break Assyria in My land, and trample him on My mountains. Then his yoke shall depart from them, and his burden shall depart from his shoulders.

Satan overcame because his name was written in the book of life since says the fact he was given a new name away from Lucifer. Jesus gives a new name to who overcome, remember? See:
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it."
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name."

The damned firstly who bare witness of me are already in the lake of fire, watching through their human graves which shall not frankly tell the hellish person is already in the lake of fire and has no control over what the human grave says or does.
I have judged no man. My works let any walk into no naming mentionings with defined shakings.
Besides all this, those who are damned are not a man. They are abominations far from man. The unnamed are the damned who bare witness.
