Is God competent or incompetent?
First prove one must the existence, before to prove the competence one tries.

Considering that no such entity exists, God as claimed to be existing cannot be either. On the other hand, if all are made in the image of God and people can be incompetent, then God would also be incompetent.

Well said.

what would be the personality of Satan do you think?

Gnostic Christian Bishop.

As compared to Yahweh, Satan is God-like and Yahweh is Satan-like.

Do you want to be compared to Yahweh, a genocidal son murderer, or a Satan who does a lot less harm and even prevented A & E from remaining dumb and bling to their mental potential.

You cannot prove your first statement but no argument other than grammatical which I do not bother giving.

No argument on the rest.
