Better than the sentence of living a life where you think your so perfect that you have to correct people on internet forums.

It looks like someone has control issues

yes, coming onto an atheist board to imply atheists just want to be cool and correct them is much better

"Your" should be "you're".

What pisses me off about theists is that they fail to understand what atheism is.

That's what's called a persecution complex and since you posted this on an atheism/agnosticism forum you're not likely to get many people agreeing with you.

Now you've just hammed up the quotes...give up while you're behind would be my advice.

As to the original question - if people can decide based on nothing more than a warm fuzzy feeling that there "just is" a god - I'm not sure how questioning why an omnipotent being who apparently exists out-with the laws of physics that govern our universe is happy to sit back and watch millions of innocents die could possibly be viewed as unreasonable?

If there is a super natural perhaps it's similar thinking.

It's also the same on the nature channels where humans try not to interfere with wildlife as it could upset the habitat.
That's an interesting way to look at it, although the obvious counter argument is sometimes humans do interfere with wildlife with positive results (wildlife reserves and the like).
Unfortunately, our attempts to "save" nature invariably result from previous interferences, both destructive and benevolent.
