PS. If there was a god and he/she created the universe, god would be utterly incompetent to create a race as volatile as humans..

I disagree man has a brain to make choices if one chooses to do wrong they do so by free will.

A sovereign power is in control, mere man cannot comprehend or accept this it is by their choice yet again.

True enough, although our will is not completely free - there are chemical constraints on it. Just how large those constraints are is a good question, but they do exist.

Either I'm reading the above sentence wrong or it contradicts itself...

Rubbish. Man has no choice over the world God creates by his actions. His so called free will is limited by what God intends and allows. And when God is unbelievably evil, as is his want on countless occasions, free will counts for nothing.

Hmm. Out of curiousity, are you being sarcastic, or are you a genuine mistheist?
