No!  It is the opposite of wishful thinking isn't it?  This is just what 
the theist want you to say, in their completely twisted and lying way.  
Never give them this!  If there is truly already a God that is so 
impotent against overcoming evil, and just hides from it all, then we 
must be condemned to the same eternal impotent damnable full of evil and 
isolation hell even if we become as powerful!  I hope to soon be much 
more than such an impotent God in hell is is the God described in the Bible.

Atheists are the ones with truly "wishful thinking" and true faith and 
hope aren't they!?  We believe evil isn't all that hard to overcome, and 
we are the only ones that can hope that we will soon have the power to 
completely overcome much of it right?  It also just so happens that our 
beliefs are much more than "wishful thinking" and futile faith or hope
