Painful adaptation to the environment that leads to a useful mutation is the only redeemable trait so far that can be utilized ironically to explain the purpose of suffering and its questionable necessity.

Like the Democrats and Republicans switching sides for "arbitrary" reasons, God puts the advantages on the opposite aisle for both contenders in the faith v. science debate. Science has the evidence but faith has the...the...hope for a utopia. Amusing...as if God expects both sides to work together....

The payoff for the suffering is worth it to biologists, or is it?

Useful mutation? Ironic?

Avoiding the theoretical. and concentrating on the theological, how is suffering necessary?

Are they really so dissimilar? That is the Democrats and Republicans as well as the faithful and science minded?
