: ***Mosquitos hunt us for food. : If it is so easy for the world to become imperfect,(of miilibar of pressure) then how do you call this world perfect. : I guess the only perfect part is the range between just above sea level (with few exceptions) to say 16km above sea level, this hardly comprises the world, so it is a currently semi-perfect biosphere, not whole world. : It is foolish to think god would withhold the tree knowledge from his image of himself to begin with, you know how vain he is! : Furthermore, how could we have the free will to chose to/not to eat the fruit if the fruit contained the knowledge we needed to make that choice? So that would leave us as a creation that has learned its acceptable behavior but force? : My dog does not rebel against me because he knows I am more powerful, so how could we have done so if we had limited knowledge?
