Like why would God let it evolve or straight up create it?

That's satan's tree. After God got mad at Satan with that whole tree of knowledge of good and evil thing, God felt bad for Satan, so He gave him his own tree.
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

A better question is why did God create pinky toes? It's like just hanging out there waiting to be knocked against something. I kicked my pink toe yesterday, screamed some expletives and today it's a little swollen and really "pink" and purple.

Perhaps God has a dark sense of humour? y:-? I guess if God's all good then he wouldn't be racist, so I guess that must be it.

I'm starting to think God IS racist, and doesn't like white people. Why else would He allow us to get sunburned so easily?

I thought you heard. God's a big black woman. It's true. Ask PaulS. :P

It'd probably also explain why you have a thing for the 3 stooges, no?

I don't think God would approve of anyone with a thing for the three stooges.

To give a serious response Kid, we know very little and assume much about the world, about reality, way in which things work, what is/isn't conscious.

Consider just this following tweak to your understanding of the nature of the world. If all of creation shared in a consciousness of sorts, animals, environment, nature, earth, rivers, oceans, trees, birds, etc -- would such change matters?
"Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13)

Maybe it used to work better and be less sticky, but when God cursed the ground in Genesis, it started killing things?

It's like asking why God created eye parasites or tape worms... we live in a fallen world.

God cursed the ground in the garden.

You have given the typical YEC response.

Because thorns only grow in Eden, correct? Women only have painful Childbirth in Eden?

At least my reply was scriptural and honest.. yours not so much.

Your reply is eisegesis.

The text doesn't say, but you assume that thorns didn't grow outside the garden before the fall.

The text doesn't say, but you assume that women other than Eve were punished for her sin.

Don't take my word for it. Read the text. Show me where it says that someone other than Eve would have painful childbirth. Show me where the text says that there were no thorns outside of the garden.
