← Intelligent Design and the cruelty of nature

@Schrodinger's Cat: Let me try again, a little more succinctly....

The question as to "why is nature so cruel" only makes sense when asked in response to an assertion by theists that nature was created by a loving and omnipotent god. Without the assertion that there is a loving god who created everything and designed it to be exactly the way it is, nobody would need to "make a moral judgement that the world is 'bad.'" The world would just be the way it was, with no value judgment attached to it.
