Why is it that almost universally, if people believe in God, it is the Creator God, some Great Other that made the cosmos, watches over us,
and is in charge of everything? Isn't this idea of God a bit suspect given it is how children relate to their parents in terms of being taken care of,

I am not questioning that the Divine is Truth, but is such a one the creator of all of this? Like you said, why would such a one allow killing, not to
mention the thousands of men, women, and children that die every day for any number of reasons. I have to this day never heard an acceptable
justification from anyone trying to explain such actions by such a Creator God.
