    Him being all powerful and all ... he could have stopped it. But he didn't. He let us massacre each other, knowing what would happen

    Again if you go back to OP he's asking questions why, to Christians.
    According to the Bible God gives people free will.
    If there is a God, then I would imagine he would give his creations free will,
    otherwise we are nothing but pawns that he could move around on a chess board called earth,
    and that would become redundant after a while. Blaming God for not stopping wars is retarded.
    All of the years humans have lived with each other we still haven't learned to peacefully coexist.
    That has nothing to do with God.

    Not everyone has a mind capable of comprehending life without a higher being. The 95%(ish) that can't resort to religion...

    Well why did God give us a nature that leads us to contradict the very commandments he passed on to us?

    Hell if I know Alen, there are plenty of things that confuse me about the Bible..
    but if I were to take an educated guess, it would be so that people learn from their mistakes.
    Sure he would have all the answers, but so does your math teacher. You wouldn't learn much if the answers were just handed to you.
    Either way, I'm on the fence with the whole divine creator thing anyway.
    All I have to go by on this subject is whats provided in the Bible.
    It was actually Satan who introduced the Sin nature by tempting Eve,
    But God created him and as an all knowing all powerful being he would know that one of his angels would betray him before it happened..so why he created Satan in the first place is very perplexing..

    If he wanted us to learn, why forbid learning in the first place? His plan was to keep us ignorant forever (the whole Adam & Eve stuff, however you interpret it).

    Maybe dude I couldn't tell you.
    What I never understood, is that there are chapters in the Bible where God shows anger at his people.
    Well if he knew it was gonna happen already, then why would he get mad?
    It's just one of the many inconsistencies in the book that made me step away.
    Not only that, but the 3 major religions just tend to borrow off of their ancient predecessors a bit too much for me to find them credible.

    This is a question we all struggle with.
    Many, instead of asking why God lets bad stuff
    happen, ask why he permits suffering and evil.
    The argument that God does not exist because
    bad stuff (evil) happens is an old one—and it’s
    just as flawed today as it ever has been. If bad
    stuff only ever happened to humans and never
    to God, then we might have some reason to
    question God and if he really exists.
    But the truth is that God, in the person of
    Jesus, came to our world and personally experienced
    lots of “bad stuff.” Even though Jesus
    never did anything to hurt anyone, he was
    betrayed, misunderstood, hated and finally
    killed. He came to tell us that bad stuff won’t
    last forever. Even though bad stuff is still happening,
    it won’t be long before it’s all history.
    That’s why the ultimate meaning in life is
    found in him—his life, his death and his resurrection.

    God chooses not to intervene. We, as humans, create wars, violence, and other evils. Why should God have to amend them, when it is our creation? God allows evil to exist so that he can decide who goes to heaven and who goes to hell, to differ the good from the bad.
