Further questions

Two thought /outrage provoking questions for today:
  1. If there was a 'god', who was omnipotent and could control all things, why would this 'god' only ever have one son? Why not send other offspring, since by many religions' stances we do not seem to be getting the message?

  2. If there is such a thing as 'hell', where 'god' sends us to be punished, why does 'god' need to punish us with such maladies as disease and natural disasters while we are alive? And why punish people who follow the word of 'god' as laid out in the bible (the fact that 'god' didn't actually write the bible notwithstanding)?
