2) Along the lines of 1, why do certain species thrive only at the expense of other species?
3) Why in nature is there no built in allowance for the weak and misfortuned (natural selection says destroy them and get them out of the gene pool!).
It's not a compassionate universe/creation no matter how you slice or dice it. Conversely, it is a natural world of teeth, claws, fangs, venoms, barbs, thorns, poisons, etc. It is only us humans (and possible some animals) that are capable of any compassion, but it is not part of the ontological makeup which God supposedly made!

Your perceptions of the world are not the reality. You live in an illusion of your own making.
