If you read the story of Adam and Eve you will notice that it seems that God wants mankind to be ignorant is this a valid assumption?
The point is not of a valid assumption. The story tells us that
sure God wants us to be ignorant, the point is in the matters that
will lead to his destruction. According to the story if everything
had went as God had planned then the world today would have been
free from all evils. Hence, it is better to be ignorant and happy
rather than being knowlegable and in misery. Jonab's thought: If
God wants man to be ignorance and happy He would have created
robots. But it seems that God doesn't want man to be ignorance. He
wants man to know good and evils and then choose good over evils.
If we have a choice to enter the army to fight for our country then
we can join the army because be love our country. Contrary if we
have no choice but to join the army then we join the army only out
of obligation. God wants us to know good and evils so we can choose
Him not out of obligation. Jonab's continues: you say: "if
everything had went as God had planned then the world today would
have been free from all evils". Do you understand the implication
of your statement? The implication is things did not go as God
planned and God made a mistake with His creation.
