|E. Mankind chose NOT to do God's will very early on (just as all young children choose not to do parents' will), thus prompting God to institute a system for persuading humans to admit their folly and begin doing His will, for "redeeming" humans who choose this path, and for reminding humans that the present physical world is only a "proving ground" or "training camp" for the next world which will be created at a definite point in the future. These events are commonly called the Fall and the Curse by Christian Theologians.|
Kind of odd behaviour for an entity who is supposed to be omipotent. Are we expected to believe that God (as defined by most Christians anyway) needed a "Plan B"? (Actually, if you assume the flood actually happened, he had to use a Plan C as well).
