Why would God create the need to eat.

If God is infinitely Benevolent, why would he create the fundamental needs like eating, drinking, breathing and sleeping? Why would he design a planet that is so inhospitable? Why would he give young men and women sexual urges? Why would he create Satan, greed, pestilence, war, pedophilia, rape, etc etc? Why?

The simple answer is that God is fictional and thus did not create anything.

This answer is indeed simple. The question is not a direct one, more a philosophical one.

How can you prove that God is fictional?

How can you prove that God isn't fictional?

The fact is...unless he show himself....He is neither/both.

Downvote.

The same reason he created love and hate, phobias and philes, laughter and crying, up and down, left and right, be and not be. Best of all he gave us a child's laughter. His greatest creation to date.

He fked up, and created the cow (when trying to make a shark, don't ask how). He liked the look of it, and so put it on earth with Adam. Adam had no need for the cow, the cow contributed nothing, so God made Adam have hunger... in order to fulfill the 'everything has a use' thing. He then promptly taught animal husbandry to Adam to make use of the milk, and gave Adam fire to make Steak. It is all very simple.

To create the circle of life and to make room for other creatures to live and grow because if nothing ate this world would be way to crowded

The circle of life was created when God took away the immortality from all the animals due to the eating of the forbidden fruit... it turns out I remember stuff from years ago I guess.

If we rely on this world then we'ld look after it better, for example if we didn't eat chances are no-one would bother growing plants or grass for livestock, causing several species to go extinct.

Grass, is one of the most successful plants on the planet, it will grow with or without man's help, plants of many varieties will continue to grow as they do. Livestock exist in their present form as they have been bred selectively from wild ancestors, so have food plants for that matter, these livestock animals would never have existed and therefore would be open to the same pressures as others. Anyway the point is that it seems unnecessary to need to eat, and to have to struggle to do so, with children dieing every second from lack of food and water due to geographical location.

"Grass, is one of the most successful plants on the planet, it will grow with or without man's help, plants of many varieties will continue to grow as they do"

Not if there are cities everywhere.

"Livestock exist in their present form as they have been bred selectively from wild ancestors, so have food plants for that matter, these livestock animals would never have existed and therefore would be open to the same pressures as others."

And all those animals would have been hunted and become extinct.

"Anyway the point is that it seems unnecessary to need to eat, and to have to struggle to do so, with children dieing every second from lack of food and water due to geographical location."

The only reason they die is because some countries are too selfish to help them, the main reason the human species is dominant is because we share our supplies.

Those are really Human instincts. And unless you believe in God you can't blame no one but yourself. i.e Human Beings. And, all those are essential needs for the Working of the system and the negatives are the reactions or the Side effects. And why it is so inhospitable? I really think instead of asking why God would do that? Or why do you have faith in God? Or lets all Dis belief... It's better off to find solutions. Cuz being an Atheist or an Agnostic will yield nothing for a solution.

This is a pondering question that I do not think anyone can provide the right answer.
