By all accounts from Genesis, God is really a pretty boring guy, if not actually evil. All that power, and yet all he could muster was cold, hungry, naked savages who died at very early ages, most often by awful diseases. What an asshole! I’d have done one hell of a lot better than that.
Man himself, being far more benevolent and Good, has managed to do what God couldn’t or wouldn’t by curing lots of those awful diseases that kill children and put adults in early graves. In so doing, man, through his unGodly Goodness, has quadrupled his lifespan. Man: Good. God: a real asshole.
Anyway, because man is good, he continues to strive for progress in accomplishing what God can’t, or won’t.
