    If i knew beforehand that my children would misbehave and do wrong, would I then abort them? Got three kids and five grandkids, so I geuss that wasn't the issue. Why else would we be created. Look outside the box, and with a modern eye.

    Because he loved them an wanted to give them a chance and i also agree that he knew that Christ would redeem them.

    Maybe to create a balance between good and evil. I don't really know actually I am not a religious person.

    You know that your own child will not be perfect. Why would YOU create one?
    The joy of parenting.

    I'm thinking he was bored that day and wanted to amuse himself with a pleasant diversion.

    Because God did not make creatures autonomous, but gave free will, it was always a choice one created could make. So he set boundaries, those that free will would have to decide what was right and what was wrong. God did not forordain the outcome.

    God's knowledge is nothing similar to man's knowledge and there is no such a thing as sin against God, devil or hell!

    Because he wanted to have people, but he didn't want to control them so he gave them a choice. He has a plan for everything we just don't know what it is.

    It's because He's got a terrible sense of humour. He's like the kid that lived down the street from you who used to burn bugs with a magnifying glass and then progressed from there and then his parents sent him upstate somewhere and now never talk about him.

    The whole premise of your question that God is having a war with evil is wrong.
    The premise that Satan, if he exists, is bright and cunning, but yet is dumb enough to challenge or go against God's interest is also false and illogical.
    No one can challenge God. Anyone who thinks they can is definitely not bright.

    Everything, even evil needs God's approval and power to exist. God is the only power that sustains everything there is

    In order for God to experience his Supreme Godhead, he allowed evil to exist for this holy purpose.
    Without experiencing evil one cannot know or fully experience Goodness of God. This is true for man and God.
    Therefore the existence of evil is no accident. God is perfect and makes no accidents.

    In order experience his Goodness, he came up with a perfect plan which include the creation imperfect beings. And so he created both the physical and spiritual universe.
    God knew in advance before the creation of imperfect man that our early parent would chose path of knowledge or some see this as eating a fruit from the tree of knowledge.
    This was choice was given to man out of God's own free will and should not be considered as a sin as most religions originating in the Middle-East claim. Actually this choice fits well with God's perfect plan.

    You have a good question that challenges the Judea-Christian-Muslim theology. They believe that God is having a battle with evil.  Actually God has no battles. If God does not like something it will cease to exist now, in the past, and and forever.

    Great question. It could be broader, however. You can also ask why God would create a world in which all sorts of horrific things are possible and even inevitable. Not all suffering, after all, can be attributed to human sin. Natural disasters, disease, and other acts of God have nothing to do with human behavior.

    Personally, I don't know why anyone or anything exists. I do agree somewhat with the argument that a God who wanted a relationship with His creatures would not create obedient automatons. I don't know why, however, the world has to have viruses, earthquakes, tsunamis, mosquitoes, dung, and all sorts of other junk. I'll leave that question to the theologians.

    Is this another 'Why is There Evil in The World' question?

    If God is all things then that would include evil - yes?

    "In the beginning there was no differentiation, it was a uniform unity of the universe. A potential for evil by God was the cause of creation and not a by product of it." -

    It is a lesson that we need to learn before we live in paradise.

    One has to be satisfied of what one's possess and one will not be seduced by Satan.

    because it's just a story. it's like why did noah live to be 700 years old, because the story teller decided to make him that age.

    I don't believe He created them in the way that the bible says and Satan is just an excuse for being bad and evil.
