So now we are to praise the most wicked evil character in the bible? I'm talking about God, who is constantly either committing or ordering racism, sexism, cruelty and genocide throughout the book.

It's a good thing he doesn't exist.
It does seem pretty obvious that God is just a human creation rather than a real entity, but I'm thinking that Jesus the person probably existed, he just didn't have the superpowers ascribed to him by later authors.

You suspect Jesus faked his powers using advanced alien technology instead? Yes, that seems plausible.
