Violence serves only to enforce injustice; it has no place in a civilized world.
Justice is a construct of love and intelligence.
Evidently, Ba'al is not interested in civilized worlds. For several thousand years, through his worshipers, he has been attempting to construct a permanent injustice in the old man's name. He can do many things through them, but they obviously are unable to help him understand what it means to be god.
Buddy, the image of god is not that of a mass murderer desperately attempting to render a permanent, submissive, unresistant state in humankind. That is what you look like naked. Thankfully, in actuality no one is condemned to live a miserable role in an ugly story.
The old man does not create to possess. He is, however, eternally responsible.
Ba'al's Donkey Kong apparatus is not too big to fail, because humankind is. It will fail because it is intrinsically devoid of integrity. That is the directrix of the old man's parabola.
