Whenever a christian tries to prostelytize (sp?) I ask them this question and havent yet gotten a good answer. If your god is supposed to be all-knowing, just and merciful why did he put two fallible humans in a booby trapped garden of eden? If he is indeed all knowing then he knew that the result of the booby trap he set would be thousands of years of suffering and agony. If he was ok with that then he couldnt be just and merciful. Explain please.
