Why should a just and loving God eliminate suffering? Nobody can ever answer that question.
Given ambiguity, I choose to have faith in what brings the most peace of mind. For me personally, I find less suffering through chalking it all up to probability and statistics, just nature.
Would you rather:
a) be attacked by your parent/teacher/best friend
b) be attacked by a stranger with mental health issues / desperate circumstances
I choose b. There is less suffering if it isn't personally malicious. There is less suffering if there is no personal God setting it all up.
