Arent you contradicting yourself here? First you say God had specific reasons for setting up the universe the way he did..then you do on to say we dont know why He did it...you might say "believing" and "knowing" are two different things..you are right...but just as you "believe" God had specific reasons, the OP does not believe that God had any specific reasons (apart from for what he says later on) ohh and can you provide the logic/reasoning process that leads you to believe that God had any "specific" reasons??
You believe parents are taking advantage of their children's weakness by teaching them manners? Read similar arguments in a couple of other comments...parents trying to teach their children manners is not the same as God requiring His followers to worship Him. According to Christianity, God requires Christians to attend mass at least once a week..Sunday (not a Christian but assuming this is true) According to Islam, God requires all of His followers to worship Him five times a week...i dont think parents want their children to worship them once a week or five times a day? So clearly your argument to that specific point is not at all logical.
