Maybe I am not supposed to ask this question but I am very interested in what people have to say about this issue. This planet is less than desirable place to live according to my evaluation, too much pain and suffering. If God is really in charge an could fix the situation or at least make it better, don't you think God should get punished for allowing such turmoil?

If your viewpoint is that of child of God, instead of ego, you become invulnerable and suffering cannot touch you. I've been there, briefly. Now, I'm working on getting rid of ego so I can fully reawaken and make that state permanent
I think you guys have good answers. Since humans have free will it would be unfair to blame God for our predicament. However, if God does have a plan, it would be nice if he sent us an email so we could have a clue.
ok but God has the power to rule the world. Why does God not help out more? Some days I equate God to a CEO who lets the inmates run the prison. :). That CEO would get punished right?
I like this answer. Taking responsibility for our actions, yes, this sounds good to me.
