Faith is the key word.
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?”

God is Omnipotentt;
- God made all the universe, stars, planets, animals and man
God is Omniscient
- God knows the present, the past and the future - everything is to His plan
God is Goodness
- God is and and good spirit
It is our nature that we will destroy forests, animals and ultimately the planet and my interpretation of a God knew this - but still set the wheels in motion for our own self destruction for His perverse pleasure.

The OP simply stumbled upon Epicurean philosophy naturally.
Epicurus realized that god is not real, and what he did was logically end the argument.
