A Maltheist is someone who believes that a God or gods exist, and that they are evil, malicious, incompetent, or otherwise causing the suffering of humanity.

  • Gnostics are semi-Maltheistic, as they believe the material world was created by an imperfect, evil sub-god named Ialdabaoth.
  • The Church of the SubGenius often has a strong maltheistic streak to its deities.
  • The fictional writings of Howard Phillips Lovecraft were maltheistic, in that the godlike alien beings he depicted were, at best, indifferent to humanity--and drawing their attention could be catastrophic.
