The implication being that yahweh is not in fact omniscient and has a tendency to fail to communicate with that which it is alleged to have
Seems like this god just cannot get it's creation to cooperate, wipe it out with a flood or try a different human form, nothing seems to work.
You explain /expect GOd to fill humanity's expectations, from a human perspective, since you have no other, herein lies the problem with religion.
Yeah, well, who says God is this or that, or perfect? Its something people choose to beleive as much as they choose to beleive he exist at all.
Dinosaurs had there shot, were successful (lived millions of years) in their time and life has moved on.
Were they meant to be perfect and exist forever? Are we?
Blaming God for what 'works' or dosent as far as we're concerned is a cop out. The natural world works fine, humanity is what it is, we will
continue or we will not, why attribute either outcome to god?
Are we like pet goldfish? Give little johnny a goldfish and if it lives 20 yrs, say, jhonny is wonderful, if it carkes it next week, say johnny is a

For him to prevent all the harm we do , limits the freedom he can allow us. If he limits our freedom, we are no more than biological automata, like
animals, unable to do anything including great good like saving tiny babies with surgery, just as much as being unable to do destructive things.
Life itself is not 'perfect', nobody said it was meant to be except those who would assume to understand the reason for life to exist at all. Bit
