I would like to start by saying I do beleive in God but in more of a Tao as opposed to God as presented in the Judeo-Christian sense.  The problems I have with that God are many.  But for those who do beleive in him (and it does seem to be a 'he' specifically which poses a problem right away) what are your thoughts on the following...

If God is loving... why did he create us dependant on killing and devouring other creatures?  Ok, so we sinned and got kicked out of the garden... what exactly did the animals do that was so bad?  If we were the 'bad' guys, why is it that we aren't on the bottom of the food chain?  God being perfect... why wouldn't he create us so that we didn't need anything to eat... or air to breathe for that matter... why do we have to breathe?  

There are a number of things that just don't fit for me...but I'lll start here.
