Interesting thoughts Mr De Smidt.
Would you also hold that a competent God would not make a human being that is by nature greedy? If a God did create mankind that is by nature greedy then does it follow that God is not all benevolent..and just plain mean?
Could one hold that God created mankind..and other animals that have a built in urge to reproduce because it is too important to leave such a necessary trait to chance..in others words God wanted a continuing world?
Could a God have created mankind that is essentially greedy because such a greed is required to keep mankind active and progressive?
Has God created mankind with the tendency to do wrong so that mankind must struggle to against his nature? Has mankind been created knowing within his being the difference between right and wrong?
