God and a Cruel universe

If there is God, why does Evil exist ? Why " bad" things happen to innocent people ? Is there really " Justice" ?

My friend Jug ( he doesn't know it, yet :- )  ) tries to put it ============== So why seek this elusive faith that you don’t believe in, that you don’t have faith in, in the first place?  You only seek faith when in desperation  you are driven to faith by the opposite of faith, which is despair.  Despair is like a bad attack of spiritual sciatica, an unbearably painful condition brought on by an overwhelming sense that not…
