    If the All Powerful God is the alpha and omega plus gave us free will then

    did God know before hand that Adam & Eve would eat the apple before even giving life to humans?

    One would presume so.

    The answer to the question you're asking is yes.  It seems what you're really asking though is, why would God create us knowing that we would fall?  The answer to THAT question is because he loves us, and our return of his love has to be a choice.  Forced love is no love at all.  He wanted us to exist even though he knew we would disobey him.

    Yes, it is all part of His master plan, only partly understandable to us in this lifetime.

    First off: No human has "Free Will". To have this power one would only have to think something to move and it would move. Only God has this power.

    As for your question about Adam and Eve. Yes God already knew the result of His test, but hoped it might change. After all God is all knowing. If He weren't He wouldn't be God.

    If the story of Adam and Eve is true, God stacked the deck and set us up to fail from the start.

    Could it be possible that God intended Adam and Eve to "Fall?" If that is the case then why would they need to "Fall?"

    I believe He did.  I believe he had in mind the whole time that Jesus would be sacrificed as the perfect lamb of God to cover the many sins of the flesh.  He created us so he knew our weaknesses before we did.  I don't for one second believe that God created this world and mankind and then just played it by ear.  Too many prophecies in the OT point to Jesus and the coming of the Saviour.  When he toldl Abraham to sacrifice his only son Isaac on the alter and Abraham was prepared to obey Him, God provided a ram for that blood sacrifice instead.  There are many more indications in the OT as well but that, to me, is the most vivid right now.
