"By definition ... an Immortal Creator is a cruel god because he, never having to face the fear of death, creates innumerable creatures who do. Why should He do that? If He's "omniscient" he could be kinder and create immortals secure from the danger of death. Instead He sets about creating a universe in which at least many parts of it, and perhaps the universe itself, dies. There is a clear imperative in Western religion that humans must remain small and mortal creatures. Why ... it's a little like the rich imposing poverty on the poor and then asking to be loved because of it." ...... Carl Sagan
