Is God Evil?

In my eyes God is evil I say this because if God was truly good and was truly on our side then why would he let there be all this evil into the world? Evils like war and murder some of you might say that the devil is the one who created all these thing. Since God is all powerful and all knowing wouldn't he know that Lucifer would fall and become Satan? Also since he's all powerful wouldn't he be able to strike down Satan whenever he pleases? I mean since Lucifer was once one of God's angels created by God himself wouldn't make sense for him to be able to make it so he was never created in the first place? If he has this type of power being the creator of everything we know of, and being the protector of everything that is good wouldn't get rid of all the evil or not create it to begin with?
Even ignoring what I said above i still think God is evil. Why, because if God was good why would he let the rich get richer and let the poor suffer? Also why is it that just by confessing your sins to God and having a good relationship with him you would be able to go to heaven; but if you never do anything wrong and your as close to a perfect being as you can be but you don't have a good relationship with God your going to hell. Let me give you an example lets say that a person named Ryan goes around stealing and murdering people everyday, but every Sunday he goes to the church and confesses to everything he has done and then after a few years Ryan finally stopped killing and stealing. He would go to heaven, because apparently confessing to what you have done and then turning your life around for the better would make everything you did disappear. Maybe in God's eyes yes but what about the families that know have to replace what was stolen, or have live knowing that someone they love is dead and is never coming back because of what Ryan did. On the other hand you have Jake an honest kid who could never even hurt a fly and spread peace, love, and Joy where ever he went. However he never believed in God, because he has never had a reason to believe in God. So Jake is going to hell for the soul purpose that he had a reason to believe in God in the first place? To me that doesn't sound like a man who is truly good to me that sounds like someone who only wants to spread chaos, death, and despair across the universe. What if that it's not that God is evil, but the one's that write the bibles and controls the religion is evil or what if religion itself is evil, but for that would be for a later argument.

Actually according to the bible the world was made in seven days science has proven other wise yes God might of had a hand to play with it but then again why would he put so much time and effort into one little planet when he has an entire universe to look after. Also in today's day and age has God help us with any of our problems like war or corruption the answer is no. He might of helped us in the past just because he wants us to be aware that he is there and that's it. If that wasn't the case then why do we still have people that are in place like the Congo where they are being raped and murdered and in some cases kids are forced to eat their own parents. How many people do you think are praying for that type of chaos, suffering, and violence to stop how many? Has it stopped yet no the number of cases where this has happened has actually increased and it's spread to an even bigger area. If God really was good then why wouldn't he stop this from happening tell me why, because that doesn't sound like a protector of good to me. To me that sounds like a guy that just likes to watch humans tear each other apart and/or wants to see what would happen in the end for all we know we could be an experiment in a lab to better a extremely intelligent beings society.

Religion is actually a pretty terrible thing to have, because of religion millions of people have died because someone didn't agree with what someone else believes in. So i religion really such a good thing to have it our society considering how many people have died and are still dieing because of religion. Also have you read to entire bible because if you have you can't deny that God has murdered billions upon billions of people. He destroyed the tower of Babylon because he didn't agree with it. The bible is proof that he has do these things like in Egypt where he kills all of there first born sons or in the story of Noah's art where only two of everything is allowed to live in which doing so millions of things were murdered in the process? I don't that a God worth worshiping would do such things.

If God is evil , then why did he bother to create us at all . How come the concept of good and evil has come about ? Animals don't have it . I mean they kill , they do everything , they don't consider these evil , Neither does God . You people have a very shallow understanding of good and evil
