We've got carnivorous animals that, if they were designed, were designed specifically to kill. For an example.
There are 2 problems with "The Fall" argument. The first being, that there's very different structures composed for herbivores and carnivores. They
weren't all designed for the same thing. The second thing, is that it implied God would inflict unnecessary animal suffering to deal with human
issues. Oh wait, that's not an issue, he did that many times throughout the old testament. Drowning all animals to death to kill a couple humans
being only the most notable example of that.
Still, the first point. Spiders with webs that catch flies. Snakes with horribly painful and paralyzing venom. Parasites that lay eggs inside other
animals that eat them alive from the inside. Fangs, Canide teeth, claws, all the agility. Poisonous animals.
There's so much that shows animals have the design to kill each other. It's not that they''re acting up after the fall, it's how they're hard
The God described in the old testament seemed to have very little value in the lives of animals. Maybe all that suffering they go through means
nothing to him.
You just can't question God's design, you're not as smart as him. He's smart enough to know that it's perfectly ok to create a system where
animals strive on suffering, you're a lesser minded human.
Natural Selection created them instead of any god. Natural Selection being neither loving or malevolent, ultimately creating creatures based off how
well they survive instead of creating "what's good".
A different God who isn't love created them, and a different religion is right.
