So by your logic God created fire, contraception, wheels, penacilin, medicine, clothes, electricity, female rights, etc etc ?
God is pretty dumb aye.
It sounds to me like you don't understand what disease is or what penicillin is.
God created all life on earth right? Bacteria and other microorganisms cause disease in humans and god created them so it seems pretty fair to blame him.
Penicillin is a chemical derived from a fungus that evolved a mechanism to kill bacteria that were in competition for nutrients it required. Once again it was a natural process. (albeit one that humans now purify etc.)
When you compare organisms that god supposedly created and their byproducts to abstract concepts that humans came up with like women's rights (funny choice considering how sexist religion tends to be) you just make yourself look ridiculous.

I said that all FROM MY OWN LOGICAL VIEW AND BELIEF. I have no idea why he really made diseases and "bad" things, but there is obviously a reason for it.
Just because it is your belief doesn't make it logical. You can claim it all you want though.
As for "discovering" things, doesn't it make you feel good when you figure out a solution to a problem? Maybe, we are SUPPOSED to learn something on the Earth before we die? There's lot's of things that something could be.
If we are supposed to figure out certain things doesn't that mean that god has a specific plan for us? If there is such a thing as destiny i don't understand how we are supposed to have free will at the same time...
This is an opinionated thread btw, calling someone "dumb" just shows everyone how ignorant you are of other people's beliefs and an unwillingness to accept someone's opinion as their own.
"You are entitled to your own opinion, not your own facts."
Having an opinion does not automatically make it valid. If your opinion isn't informed based on fact (whether that be out of deliberate ignorance or a lack of evidence) then it simply isn't logical or valid.
