If God afflicts us with diseases to test our patience

If God afflicts us with diseases to test our patience and our faith, then why do animals, insects, and plants also encounter diseases?

About Mike

Hello, I am an atheist because of reason and personal experience. I am a father of THREE lovely living kids and two dead embryos, married to a lovely Christian Catholic devoted woman. Yes, black and white can coexist as long as there is respect and love, which is something abstracted from any belief or religion. I do not claim absolute truth and not 100% sure that a God does not exist somewhere out there. The scientific method is what I use to connect to reality. If there is something I don't understand, then it is because i don't understand, not because god exists. In case you haven't noticed, I am a native Arab, and English is my third language (yes there is second language). I like reading the Bible and the Quran and the critics of both of them. I also love watching documentaries especially astronomy, cosmology, Quantum Physics, and new discoveries in science in general, and Physics in particular.

      So you believe that everything was “created” for the human being? Don’t you think it is so egoistic to think of it this way?

      Also the mistake of one and only one couple doomed the whole humanity! God could have punished those two and kept the others in paradise!

      You might say, “there were no others”, and I’ll tell you that God’s masterpiece, aka the humans, screwed everything from the very beginning! Call that a masterpiece! God doesn’t even know how to invent something, because his best invention screwed up everything from the very first beginning! And since it is the beginning, why didn’t he reset his creation to make it better and error proof? He didn’t do any of that and kicked his creation from his kingdom to the doom! Very merciful indeed!
