In my experience, the people who are so sure they know God are the people with IQs under 70.

***The whole universe, including us, was perfect in the beginning! It was only untill sin was introduced that we became imperfect.***

Aaron, we've been through this. If God can see the future, he knew sin would be introduced. And if he designed us, he designed us with foreknowledge that we would sin. That is, he purposefully, indirectly introduced sin to the world.

***This is what makes God so perfect: HE GIVES YOU A CHOICE***

I am absolutely awestruck that you don't get how a divine plan and free will are mutually exclusive. If God knows that I will murder someone in 12 years, how can I POSSIBLY avoid that fate? If it's physically impossible for me to NOT murder that person, my will is NOT free. And again, if God designed me, he designed me for the expressed purpose of killing that person.

***6 day is much more direct than the 10-15 billion year method.***

Assuming an anthropomorphic God. An actual omnipotent being would have no biases against waiting longer. Time would be essentially meaningless to it.

***We are the most precious because we were created prehaps for one of the few things God might call a need, companionship.***

Companionship? Jeez, some companion. If he exists, he has left humanity completely to its own devices for its entire history. If he really wants companions, why not come down and say hi?
