Everyone seems to behoove the idea of god allowing harmful things to exist, but I've never seen a problem with it. Do we really expect Him to catch us every time we stumble and fall as a baby? To magically put protective pillows around our tiny knees and faces? How then would we develop the character traits to survive? Obviously we do need to get tougher.
I don't believe you. You must have thought more about it than this - we've been pushing this stuff in your face for years.
I've never figured out how the unbelievers will call Him a bloody bastard or a tyrant as if they have some better idea of how such a Deity *should* behave! But that's an argument we will never have any conclusions on.
It's certainly an argument that you will fail to understand because, I suspect, you just don't like it. To the rest of us it's blindingly bloody obvious.
