Opening Speech (Ragu Ram):

The hypothesis of that an omnipotent and omniscient being created this world is a poor hypothesis that creates as much questions as it answers.

1. It leads to an infinite regress-for who then created God?If that question does not arise,then hypothesising a creator is an arbitrary hypothesis-not one that fits the problem situation .

2.It does not make any predictions of a new kind-every good theory uses laws to explain and also gives us predictions of a new kind.

3. Finally,the most obvious-it is does not give any angle to criticise. The basic characteristic of a rational/scientific explanation is that it is arguable and critisisable.It leads back to my point no.1:it is simply chosen ad hoc-plucked out of thin air -a take it or leave it thing( of course,it doesn't end there-if you don't believe you'd go to hell-how the hell else do irrationalists winj adherents-but with fear,calling names,emotive statements,etc?? )

It's pointless to debate you-you deny rational standards.Though I doubt,you'd forget to pour petrol for your car though"Every man uses the scientific method for a great many things and only ceases to do so where he does not know how" C.S.Peirce . Of course,in your case you simply don't want anybody applying scientific standards to analyse your God Delusion. Just saying.
