^ I wonder that as well.

Of course, one does wonder how Noah managed to make it to Madagascar to pick up the animals there, and, of course, one does also wonder how he got them back to Madagascar.
What you do, is start with a really high sea level, and Noah residing on the top of a mountain, so he's on an Island. On that island, there are a few species of hog and goat. Noah moves the 10 animals into his boat, and then it rains a few more metres, and the top of the mountain is covered.
Then, the sea level drops 10000 metres, and exposes all the land bridges, so the goats and hogs can walk across to Australia, in the ensuing 1000 years. Then the water goes up again, to close all the land bridges off. The goats then evolve in to 100 species of Wallaby and Kangaroo in the next 6000 years. They are not discovered until Captain Cook landed in 1770. During this time, aboriginals faced many evolutions of megafauna, such as the 2000kg Diprotodon.
^^^Yep. Being smart doesn't mean we can't screw it all up. And often, we do not even know we are screwing things up until it is too late.
Remember, smoking was supposed to be good for you back in the 20's and 30's. And in the 60's we thought that disposable everything was the way of the future; just use it once and throw it away! Our dishes, clothes, everything would be made of paper, plastic and foil=disposable. I remember reading about the disposable homes of the 21st century future, (ie now) where everything inside and out would be thrown away.
The fossil fuels and high technology that have made modern life so comfortable and awesome may cause the next dinosaur-type extinction event-- only the dominant species to fall will be us this time!
How will the fossil fuels and high technology do that should it happen Nogods?

Like a child does not understand why their parents take it for vaccinations that hurt, but will save their life. 1)No parent who loves their child would choose a painful treatment if there were other non-painful ones that would do the job. 2) If the loving parent could explain to the baby why the painful shot had to be given in a way that they could understand, wouldn't they do that?
So, god is unable to explain why he inflicts suffering, unwilling to explain why he inflicts suffering, or he just does not give a damn what we think. Or someone else, like Satan, is in charge of our suffering and god can't or won't do anything about it. Or he is waiting for the perfect time to act, when, well you can fill in whatever you want from religious belief X.
Or he does not exist, and suffering is just part of the way life is.
The hype that surrounds America is kind of like the hype that surrounds an unreleased video game; the reality can never measure up.
However, America is, nonetheless, a very good country on the whole.
