Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?

“There is nothing for that god to do.” I believe God can interact with His creation because He has the power to create time and space. What is your proof God can’t control spacetime?
I totally agree in evolution, but your subjective idea that God would be “cruel or indifferent” needs proof. I believe God can logically create quickly, slowly, directly, or intermediate; but His perception of time is completely different than our own. Suppose a billion years would be a second for Him or that He sees all of time (past, present, and future) all at once.
That appears to be a human perception of what you think God would act like (“inefficient, tinkering, and bungling”), but I don’t blame you because 13.8 billion years is a lot of time for us to comprehend. I think it’s a stretch to assign our own human perceptions to critique an all-powerful God’s actions.
To say human’s minds are “cognitively biased to believe in gods” says nothing about the existence of God. I would say this strengthens our belief in God who would have given us faculties to understand Him better. You again need to prove an all-powerful God (outside of our universe) cannot possibly interact with His creation if you make that claim.
