Hottip cleanup
Many Atheists and Agnostics believe that if God did exist, he wouldn't actually play an active role in human affairs. There is something to say for that viewpoint, considering the lack of fate or control present in our day-to-day lives, and how feasibly a morally good, benevolent person wouldn't just sit and watch while the people he/she cares about suffer. Or one could argue that God doesn't intervene with humanity because ''it''[[hottip:*: God doesn't have a physical form, so God can't have a gender.]][[hottip:*:Unless you are mormon.]] [[hottip:*:Or a member of practically any of the three great monotheistic religions in the civilized world, Judaism included, since we are talking about the Abrahamic God. Furthermore, according to one of those religions, ''He did take a physical form once and it was male...'']] believes that free will is more important for the human race.

Renamed trope
Dr. Manhattan [[SuperpowerLottery is an omnipotent being]] with the power to destroy entire armies by simply waving his blue hands, and yet [[SomebodyElsesProblem he is apathetic towards the human race]]. He has the power to make the world a better place, but this power has caused him to lose his humanity and become more and more detached from the human race. For most of the series, he no longer cares about humans; even after he rediscovers the miracle of human life, [[BlueAndOrangeMorality he sees life more in a predictable/unpredictable manner rather than in a good/evil manner,]] and isn't really invested in humanity from a moral viewpoint.

Given Alan Moore's spirituality, he may believe in spiritual forces in our world, but it's highly unlikely that he belives in an authoritarian God that actively controls what we say and do. And his portrayal of Dr. Manhattan doesn't dispute this.
