Where do nasty creatures come from?

Recommended Posts

All things dull and ugly - Monty Python:

All things dull and ugly,
All creatures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot.
Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their brutish venom.
He made their horrid wings.
All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.
Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid
Who made the spikey urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did!
All things scabbed and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small,
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.
 
I'm trying to remember if I've ever heard a reason for the nasty creatures, from parasites to giant carnivores, that god created... There does seem to be some people who say god made everything good, then original sin corrupted everything. That just gives me a mental image of Eve biting the apple and a blast of black magic shoots out, engulfing the teddy bears and causing them to sprout fangs and claws, and I guess a whole digestive system to go along with it. 
Even worse for young earth creationists who have to say the T-rex was using his massive jaws to brutalise cabbages, then overnight began mauling zebras. 
Is there any apologetics that cover this? Any way to make it fit with a loving god?

Mainly, the only answer I've ever recieved is "the fall". Not a good answer,  but there it is.

I am still wanting to know what's happened to the unicorn, did it get left off the ark?

Speak for yourself. These other creatures are only nasty in your limited opinion.

 

Sea urchins find each other quite sexy, and view us humans as ugly gelatinous blobs of meat.
