Firstly, you have misunderstood and mischaracterized God grossly.
Second, is your Dad 100% perfect and did you disown him? He is the only Dad you have right?
God is the only God around, whether you believe that or not, and there is only one game in town, like it or not.
You can disown God based on your own false understanding of who He is but you will only be throwing away a relationship with the only heavenly Father there is.
Why should a baby be born sick? The alternative is for God to obliterate the things that caused the sickness. That would be sin. For God to obliterate sin He would need to stop every person on earth from doing anything wrong. They would have no ability to make any wrong choice. They would have no free will. This is a greater wrong than permitting us to experience the consequences of our sins. Consequences that are here to teach us and promote spiritual growth so that we can live with God in heaven. Would you have us all be perfectly healthy and ignorant of our need to correct sin and then die forever? Or would you have us experience some pain in life as lesson so that we can live forever?
Worship of God is intended to be a relationship like a loving son to a loving father. Children who have poor relationships with their Fathers should seek a better relationship rather than maintaining a poor one that involves either rebellion or groveling.
worshiping a God like a Father is just like a Father. some are not deserving or Praise, Groveling, Monuments, or anything.
And I did not say there is no god, or that if there is god is as stated. I am saying I don't believe in a god who has us all action out parts in some grand plan to do what ever it wishes. I don't believe everything happens for a reason. I don't believe there is good and evil, in a Biblical sense, ( Right and Wrong yes) but no Devil making people do things that are bad, no evil spirits, and all that crap.
Personally I think the chances are there being a god are slim to almost none, but I don't rule it out. But I will be who I am, I try to do what I think is right most of the time, and in the end if that's not good enough, that god can suck it.
