Bill Gates=incompetent God?  
I'm reading the chapter in my philosophy book about arguments for and against the existence of God, and right now it's talking about how all the bad things in the world make it odd to conclude that there is a God who knows all, can do anything, and is infinitely caring. I was rather amused because one of the analogies the author uses is this: "Nobody ever inferred from the multiple infirmities of Windows that Bill Gates was infinitely benevolent, omniscient, and able to fix everything."

Lol. I've heard the same argument in my philosophy books. Maybe its a common analogy?

Yeah, maybe it is. My book is called Think, by Simon Blackburn.
