“If god desires that we know, love, and fear him, why does he not show himself? . . . If he is omniscient, why bother him with private affairs and prayers? If he is omnipresent, why build him churches? If he is omnipotent, how can he permit that we blaspheme? If he is just, why the supposition that man, whom he created full of faults, shall be punished? If we do good only by the grace of god, why should we be rewarded? If god is inconceivable, why should we occupy ourselves with him?”

–Johann Most, The God Pestilence
