To answer your second question.
He gave humans a mind of their own.
God did not pollute the world, humans did.
God did not murder millions of people in wars, humans did.
No matter how delusional in their understanding.

A lot of the suffering we face is there as a result of our own actions. It's very easy to blame everything on God. Yes, God knew you were going to screw up, but he gave us free will to screw things up. Why? Because when we screw things up, we turn to God for help and forgiveness. God LOVES when you turn back to him after you screw something up. Believers are most close to God in times of hardship. If only good existed in this world, a lot of us would've neglected God.
