But you are side-stepping my entire point.<quoted text>
We grow from our trials. We learn and move on and try not to repeat the same mistakes (in most cases). Even non-believers acknowledge this.
We are being prepared for much more than you know now.
I have openly said that I have faith.
The point is god - being a perfect creator - has no reason to go through this elaborate ruse. He has no reason to create such flawed beings in the first place. It is logically flawed, and god is a logical being according to virtually all Christian theology.
You have constructed an argument that is immune to all criticism because you allow for all explanations to be conveniently beyond our immediate grasp. And the basis is faith alone.
At least admit that your position is irrational.
