In response to your question, "Anyway, this is probably the wrong place to ask questions like this, but I'm wondering whether people have brought this argument up with creationists before and, if so, what the response was. Is there a "standard" response to this question, or does it simply get ignored and/or glossed over?"

Believe it not, I've heard this response--that before Adam and Eve ate that damned apple and committed the Original Sin, none of those nasty things were going on in nature--there weren't even carnivores or omnivores and everything had a care-free, long life. Or maybe everything lived forever, I don't know what else got said. I kinda lost interest and wandered off somewhere in a daze.

Wow!
