Anyway you examine the A and E story, the buck stops with god.
God made the garden. God put the trouble-tree there. He made A and E. He gave them the desire to eat fruit from any and all trees. He made the serpent with the ability to talk, and to lie. God could have intervened at any point along the way and changed the outcome, but he did not.
Instead, he sat back and watched the results unfold, like Auntie Entity in Mad Max Thunderdome.
And then he jumps in after everything goes pear-shaped, or apple-shaped, acting all surprised and offended.
He is not really very powerful, since he can't stop the snake. And he's not really very smart, since he put a tree there with delicious-looking but evidently poisonous fruit. And told them not to eat from that one, see, that one right there? Do not under any circumstances eat that luscious, sweet, juicy yellow fruit from that tree right there. Yeah. That's the one. Not to eat from. That one right there.
And given all the above, he is certainly not very nice. Especially when he reacted like Tony Soprano finding out that an underling (who he set up as a test) really was holding out on him. Not at all like a kind, patient, loving dad whose disobedient toddler ate cookies before dinner.
God in this story does not act like an omnipotent, omniscient, all-benevolent being at all. He doesn't even pass the smell test for an ordinary 21st century human parent. The one time they disobey a rule, and a fairly innocuous one at that, do you abandon your minor children to the street and write them off? Very godly behavior.
