    1. The beings with power in the universe are uncaring (Galactus, Eternity, Celestials, Watchers)



    Quote:
    2. I don't see how (a caring) God works if the multiverse is real. If every possible collection of possibilities is reflected in it's own universe then our choices can't matter to God. (unless God is universe specific I guess. Maybe every Universe God reports to Multiverse God. But that's just crazy talk)



    Quote:

    I mean ok maybe I couldn't be a straight up atheist and would have to like acknowledge The One Above All is real...but I definitely wouldn't give that thing my devotion.


That's why we need a new word. It would denote people who are agnostic as to God's existence but think it's nevertheless obvious that God doesn't care about human welfare and therefore they hold no reverence toward any God who might exist. I think a position like that would be tenable in the Marvel Universe.

Even so, if I lived in the Marvel Universe, I would think it obvious that God was protecting the Earth. Maybe not protecting you or me but definitely the Earth. There is no way in the Marvel Universe that the Earth should be anything but (a) a cinder or (b) swept clean of humans and ruled instead by some other species. I mean, sure, we have Reed Richards and Doctor Strange, but seriously, how many evil empires and hungry space gods can these two guys realistically hold at bay?
