Does God even care if we exist? [Spirituality & Religion]

Doesn't seem like it.
So why do we care if God exists?

No biblical references please. Only hard evidence.

Let's look at it from a completely logical perspective;
the Judeo-Christian god, the Abrahamic god, Jehovah, Yahweh, Allah, whatever you want to call him, is generally described by his followers as omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), omnibenevolent (all-good), as well as perfect.
Therefore, assuming he existed, he would know about everything that's going on in the world. In fact, he knew about it before he had created anything to begin with. And because he, again, assuming he existed, created us, he did so fully aware of how we would turn out in the Christian canon: sinful and imperfect.
And so it starts seeming weird how a supposedly all-good and perfect being would create us in this specific way, only to have a reason for punishing us by default unless we submit to him.
And so my conclusion is the following; the Judeo-Christian god cannot be all-powerful and all-good simultaneously. He is either impotent or evil, no matter how much the religious or apologists will try to twist it; it's one or the other.
But because that specific deity is, once again, generally described as both, it's safe to say that [b][u]he does not exist[/u][/b].
If there is [i]a[/i] god, or gods, they're either not willing to stop evil, disasters, etc. going on in the world, making them evil, or not able to, making them impotent.

@Qwerty14 I did answer. My answer is [b][u]he does not exist[/u][/b], so of course he doesn't care that we exist; he can't because he's not real.

@Emosaur I think something exists otherwise nothing would exist but I'm thinking we're just not that important or whatever it was that set this in motion is totally unaware of what's happening.

@Tastyfrzz Well, it's fine to believe that. It would only be immature to jump to the conclusion that that "something" has to be a specific deity. That's by the way also a point at which religious people/theists fail to make a valid argument for their god(s); it only ever comes down to them talking about the existence of "a creator", not further specifying who or what that "creator" is. So if anything, they make arguments for [u]deism[/u], not theism. And especially not [u]their[/u] kind of theism.
Na I doubt he cares [i]if[/i] we exist. I think he cares [i]how[/i] we exist.

Well he’s cared for me for over 50 years so that’s a pretty good track record.

@Speedyman Pride goeth before a fall.

Being blessed isn’t pride as we’ve done nothing to deserve his blessing @Tastyfrzz

It's curious to see the unbeliever ask for something they're certain not to be there, like hard evidence of a supernatural being.
He must care a little bit he sent this wonderful virus to wipe half of us out

@ExperienceDLT I think it's mostly geared towards the Trump supporters. I've painted my door frame in sheep's blood and am staying inside.
