According to your belief the creator is the one who created humanity's sinful and selfish nature. He gave us free will but not wisdom to use it properly -a perfect recipe for disaster, but then again your creator already knew that. By the way we do not have a free will, only the appearance of free will and a thinly veiled one at that.
About the analogy that we are here for a reason and that reason is to learn. I knew a guy once who when asked why he wouldn't go to school, he would smile and say that school is for those who are stupid.
As crude as this seems, if your god created us right in the first place there wouldn't be any reason for this "learning" world of yours.
Of course they don't know what they are missing, how could they,- they so stupiiid!
Oh those poor unbelievers, I feel so bad for them,
And these places and artifacts are still there if you want to go see them! Of course even seeing something isn't proof enough for some!
One will not have to live in a mundane world with no purpose,
One can achieve his/her fantasies,
One can change the world.

He didn't create our sinful nature, our free will did that.
Please explain how it is possible for the creator of "everything" to not have created something ?
Your statement would appear to preclude the omniscience of your god.
What the blazes are you talking about please clarify,

Keep on not believing in me. I'll make rush hour longer.
To a believer, no proof is necessary.
To an athiest, no proof is sufficient.
A god that can directly interfere with our lives.
If there is one, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. From zombies to cartoon super heroes. Our wildest fantasies can be brought to life if a "god" is willing to help.
We are bounded by our physical realities, I simply wish for a change.
Heck I'll sell my soul to the devil for the ability to fly butt naked.
