I made the entire universe for the sake of one subset of one species on one planet on one of

100 billion galaxies. Yep. Makes total sense.

At least in so far as you chose such a sorry ass subset!

2. Who's to say he didn't create multiple "Earths"?

He may not have told us about the others.

But, I actually agree with the tweet.

4. Well, it's easy to get confused after all them year of smokin that there hoochy cooch, y'know:

I get up sometimes in the dark and stagger through the damn acid-flash trails and starbursts on my way to go pee, and then when I'm washin my hands I'll look up and there might be this old crazy-lookin dude starin at me from across the sink, something familiar about him, y'know, like he's somebody ya met before, and his name is right on the tip of my tongue, That's ... uh ... that's ... aw, hell! I seen that fella before! and then I stumble back to bed, and while I'm tryin to go to sleep, I might lie there, listenin for aliens landin on my roof or such, and it'll hit me: Hey! Maybe that dude is god! but I'm always to tired to go back into the bathroom to ask him

5. At least get the count approximately correct.

The Earth is one of eight planets (and a multitude of minor planets) in a solar system amongst up to 200 billion forming a galaxy in a universe of 400 billion others.

Indeed, there may be even more than 400 billion galaxies. We just don't know. But that's generally the number cited. It could be more; it's not likely to be much less.

7. It's not that the state of the world has gotten worse,

it's that your ability to perceive how bad it is has gotten better.

9. The Old Testament was written from perhaps 1400 B.C. to 400 B.C. ...

by an obscure tribe of people who attempted to document their encounters with a Supreme Being or possibly aliens from another solar system.

They had very little scientific knowledge therefore it is not surprising that by our standards today their beliefs are out dated. While we are far more advanced we still have a long ways to go before we can answer the questions, "How did we come to be?", "Why are we here?" and "Where do we do when we die?"

One thousand years from now, if our species still exists, our views today will be be obsolete and ridiculed. Even then we may not know the answers to those simple universal questions.

Hopefully by that time we will have journeyed to the stars and found other intelligent life forms. To some of those we might be viewed as gods if we chose to interact with them. We may also encounter civilizations far more advanced then we are. In such cases we can only hope that the contact is peaceful.
