A famous literary expression of misotheistic sentiment is Goethe's Prometheus, composed in the 1770s.

A related concept is dystheism (Ancient Greek: "bad god"), the belief that a god is not wholly good, and is possibly evil.

Misotheism is the "hatred of God" or "hatred of the gods" (from the Greek adjective μισόθεος "hating the gods", a compound of μῖσος "hatred" and θεός "god").

In some varieties of polytheism, it was considered possible to inflict punishment on gods by ceasing to worship them.

Because if you're dealing with somebody who has the sort of mentality which likes leaving hats on the pavement with bricks under them you know perfectly well they won't give up. There are various examples of arguable dystheism in the Bible, sometimes cited as arguments for atheism (e.g.Thus, in spite and because of his sovereignty, this God is everlastingly guilty and the degrees run from gross negligence to mass murder...To the extent that [people] are born with the potential and power to [do evil things], credit for that fact belongs elsewhere. The deus deceptor (French dieu trompeur) "deceptive god" is a concept of Cartesianism. Jacques Triglandius and Jacobus Revius, theologians at Leiden University, made similar accusations in 1647, accusing Descartes of "hold[ing] God to be a deceiver", a position that they stated to be "contrary to the glory of God".Descartes was threatened with having his views condemned by a synod, but this was prevented by the intercession of the Prince of Orange (at the request of the French Ambassador Servien).The accusations referenced a passage in the First Meditation where Descartes stated that he supposed not an optimal God but rather an evil demon "summe potens & callidus" ( "most highly powerful and cunning").
