RE: Why did God create Evil?
In order to give some kind of answer to this hypothetical question, I'll assume that a god exists.
I consider evil to be the willful cause of excessive harm and suffering upon others.

The god of the bible is evil. A god would create evil because he is evil. Simple as that really.

One creates what one desires to create.
This evil god desired to create life that has to kill and consume other life in order to nourish itself. That's evil.

As for why a god is evil ? That's easy. People are evil and people created this god.

Nuff said

I am uncertain if someone already mentioned it, because I have not read beyond the original post, but the above that I have quoted is a contradiction.

If there was nothing before your god created it all, then it was his choice to create evil. There was no need for him to create evil, so why did he?

RE: Why did God create Evil?
A few words on the whole "without evil there can be no good", as if evil is necessary.

A warm shower is good because it's pleasing to the touch.
I do not have to be scalded with very hot water to appreciate how good a warm shower feels.

I feel like I could go on and on about this topic, but I did say a few words.

RE: Why did God create Evil?
"All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players."

Personally, I'm of the school of thought that we may be living in an ancestor simulation. That being said, this presupposes a creator or engineer who has had billions of years to perfect his creation.

In this play, good and evil are required to maintain the action. No story proceeds without rises and falls in the storyline. Evil is simply a method to advance the plot.

Once one accepts that we have no control over our lives, that something bigger dictates the action, life is suddenly much simpler. Anyone who thinks they control the direction of their lives is deluded.

Number One rule of the cosmos: order to disorder.

When we try to restore order out of chaos we only delay the inevitable: the return to chaos.

Our core drive is to destroy, which makes us inherently evil.

One who has admitted to being deluded does not qualify to claim that others are deluded.
