Humans tend to try to put human attributes on the Creator. This cannot be done. No one has ever seen a God or heard its voice (other than through the subconscious thought process - and even at that we are taking the word of some human being as truth). And no man can ever interpret the intentions of the creative processes that brought mankind into existence.
If a "God" (a single entity) even exists, that God cannot be petty enough to judge humans for human frailties. Nor, that any God, as depicted in any religious books, could have the slightest desire, or need, for exaltation, or self worship. If that be true then that 'entity' cannot be 'God' at all.
So, logic would dictate that mankind is the product of some creative force beyond the understanding of the simple minds of man.
A spirit that "creates" (brings about by evolutionary processes) a temporary transient ''physical" world could not possibly have any vested interest in punishing the spirit that temporarily dwells in the host bodies on this, or any other planet in the universe.
Every person will believe what they were 'taught' to believe without any logical rhyme or reason. And that is OK, but it is only OK for that individual who has no 'god given' capacity to forcing those beliefs onto others.
The only logic that we can accept as truth, is that there is a universal Oneness that we are ALL part of; and any portion of that Oneness cannot be "created", "punished", or "destroyed".
