That is simple.  If god is a hands off God, he is just watching his experiment evolve.  Wars, dissease, murder, pain, suffering are all just interesting things to watch.  just like a scientist watching ants go to war all the deaths are just datapoints.  And as a side note the scientist being a god like creature to ants probably could care less if the ants worshiped him.

I once speculated in a post a while back that, if you assume a deist god, the universe could well be to him/her like a sand pendulum is to a human being.  And when human beings play with a sand pendulum, they certainly don't worry about whether the pendulum moving the sand around is causing any pain to the grains of sand or anything.

I'm starting to lean more toward the hands off god idea...
