    According to Christian or Muslim doctrine, no he doesn't. That's the one thing for which there is no forgiveness.

    God mustn't be unloving as it is both good and evil.

    I would say so. Considering that we live, move, work and have our being within the Soul of GOD, are nourished moment by moment by the Breath of God, are enlightened with the Life of God - whether we consider ourselves saints or sinners, friends or adversaries to the One.

    The impartial beneficent treatment of all Creatures - I consider that Divine Love.

    Why would the creator of the universe care if an insignificant life-form on an insignificant planet in an insignificant galaxy among billions of other galaxies failed to worship him?

    How can God have an enemy?

    OK, but what evidence do you have that an 'owner' exists at all?

    According to the teaches of those who worship that god, some say yes, some say no, some say there is no way to know because their god is a mystery. Pick whatever story is in accord with your tradition and run with it, I guess. For my part, I don't worship that god nor do I much care what that god does or doesn't think of me.

    Is ignorance knowable, and if so, then how so?

    Ok :)

    Love it is.

    Using this, and replacing it above:

    Does Love still love those who turn away? Yes by definition.

    It's a very sweet sentiment.

    it isn't a sweet sentiment. it's science. love is a fundamental need seen in most animal reproduction and growth. that love may not last indefinitely but in the primary stages it's vital. even mother crocodiles, alligators, caimans will guard their young.
