Make Up Your Mind, Mr. Dawkins

A couple of quotes from Richard Dawkins:
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” ― Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion    

So?... What's your problem, Mr. Dawkins, because you also said...

The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.” Richard Dawkins, River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life (emphasis mine)
If you believe there is no evil, then what is the point of your first rant quoted above? If there is no evil, then your description of God is completely meaningless and irrelevant. All the adjectives you used in your description of Him are, at best, completely neutral, or, in your own wording, indifferent.
