Let me introduce you to my little friend, I like to call him Burden of Proof
There is no such thing as evil or good, we assign these values to actions based on their effects, through our own sense of morality. Killing isn't intrinsically "evil", only when we analyze it do we determine that it's an evil act.

If the only reason you insist on living is because you believe in a God then your life really has no purpose. We define our own meaning for life, there is no objective universal meaning of life.

You failed right there. You assume because there is a God, that evil can't exist.
The Judeo-Christian god Yahweh is often given the attributes of omnipotence, omniscients, omnipresence and omnibenevolence. Now, an omnibenevolent God wouldn't want people to suffer, and omnipotent god would be able to make sure that no one suffers, and omniscient god would know that we would have issues with his contradictory nature.
An omnipotent god would destroy satan, destroy hell, rid us of all our "sins" and be done with it.
By the way, regarding this God person, I have to ask. Why? Why bother making the universe? Why bother with such futile endeavors? Does it entertain god, to watch us, brother kill brother, over different gods? Over different flags? Over different skin tones? Over natural resources?
So far the universe seems to operate in a way that is consistent with the behavior of a universe in which no god exists.
I'll be back tomorrow morning, I'm curious about how this discussion proceeds.
