    Consider dj2becker. Why would God make such an ignorant and simple-minded person?

    1Corinthians 1:27-29: "But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence."

    To give the rest of us something to laugh at prior to our miserable and painful deaths and eternal damnation.

    Well, you see—

    After the tzimtzum, when the or ein sof was blasted into the vessels of creation, they were unable to withstand the impact and shattered, which event is called the shevirah. Since the shevirah, the sparks (otiot) of holiness from the or ein sof that did not return to Ein Sof him/her/itself, became trapped in material husks called kellipot. It is our task to release these sparks so that they might return to their source...

    —so it really all stems from an error after all, an error at the very point where Ein Sof decided to emanate from within him/her/itself a world.

    That should make it all crystal clear...

    I think even Master Yoda would have problems deciphering this.

    George Lucas should have a look at this. Might be a good start for another interesting story.

    Could be God trying to reach ever more ignorant and simple-minded people through him.

    It could be.

    Putting aside the implied insult of your question and addressing the meat of it:


    God has made all kinds of people. If He only loved the very intelligent He would not be a great God.

    If you have ever been a parent of many children would you not love them all? I have a friend who was a graduate from Yale and very smart. Fortune had it that one of his children was mentally retarded. You should ask him if he loved that child less than his other children.

    Besides, you should not assume that brilliant intelligence of mind is the only way to fellowship with God. There is something in man deeper than that which can contact God and fellowship with God as a loving Father.

    I don't think God made any errors, that is if he has everything predestined.
