I just read this now:
Pain and suffering in this world, according to you is for a greater good, however, it isnt the ideal method of getting to the product. It is flawed. And also...i will add that often this pain doesnt lead to learning, it just leads to pain without benefit and ultimately death.
For dumb creatures, apart from instinct, pain is all that can deter them.
For intelligent humans, scripture, moral advice and religious guidance are there to teach in a kind manner - as well as the gift of intellect.
And there is pain, when the kind counsel is ignored.
