To 1. How can we know?
To 2. I have always considered free will a cop out excuse for Gods inaction.
To 3. The question remains, why this system. I would not create life like this, unless I had no choice.
Life as we know and understand it needs death. But does God not know more than us.
But God is said to have made the world and all in it, so why did he not design it better. Why did he make a system like that?
What is perfection to you and can the creatures in his world continue to survive in it as you see it. Perhaps a perfect picture of the universe would be stars with planets spinning about them and never expanding with no shooting meteors, no changes.
This is one of my problems; if God is the creator why did he create Satan and evil.
I find it all very confusing
The proper translation of that commandment is that we are not to commit murder. Killing covers a lot more ground than that. Even vegans kill. A cabbage is a life form.
I cannot agree that all were given equal opportunity, too many animal are extinct or near extinction to make this believeable. As for man (made in Gods imagine)killing so freely is alarming.
