Why did God create viruses?

I mean seriously, creepy looking microscopic mockeries of life that can survive for decades without a host patiently waiting to infect anyone who comes near, highjacking your vary cells to produce millions of copies of themselves until the cell itself explodes, spilling the viruses onto the surrounding cells and restarting the process, corrupting and destroying the very structure of your being from the inside out. Many of them can mutate to be immune to the latest vaccine faster than we can produce it, and no other medicine can stop them. And what constructive purpose do they serve? None whatsoever. They're vile little packages of pure malice that quite literally exist only to destroy.

What sort of disturbed, sadistic bastard god would deliberately create such a thing?

Update:

@Daniel@ Technically speaking, they actually are invincible. Or nigh invisible anyhow.

Update 2:

@Daniel@ Also, there's a strain of cancer (not a virus, I know, but similar in behavior) called HeLa that's literally immortal.

    Only a sadistic person would create such cruel system indeed. Life is full of cruelty, humankind is more ethical and kind than the system itself. animals that can't survive only on eating other animals, animals that are too weak. mothers (animals) that eat their children. children that get sick. disasters, plagues, viruses, deformation, defects, lots of rain over the ocean and none over some inhabited place and much more.

    but of course no one created this universe. and god was created by ancient men. at that time they didn't know there are viruses and bacteria. they thought diseases and disasters are punishments of god for having gay sex or not accepting the claim of a monk. you can excuse their ignorance. but there is no excuse today that people continue to believe in these myths.

    Because God the Beneficient the Merciful did not created things to remain forever on this very earth . So by different mean ,not only all kind of decease that he created ,but also all kind of natural disasters that human have to encounter in everyday life . If someone do not believe in God ,The supreme Creater ,then they witness by themselves saying that filthy words to God . But those who believe in Him praise Him on all His creation whether it is positive or negative to their lives .Funny enough your last sentence you admit that God created such a thing that you dislike . So to ask ,is there any thing that you like being created by The GOD.?

    Those were his awkward teen years. Back then he was into Edgar Allen Poe, swiped his hair to the side, colored it black, and listened to loud depressing music while writing poems about how nobody in high school understood him. Those were dark times for God.

    What we experience today has absolutely nothing to do with God....Did you know that pestilence (sickness, viruses, diseases) was foretold hundreds of years ago as a sign of the end times? True, in the bible at (Mt 24:3, 21; Lu 21:10, 11, 31, 32), Revelation 6:1-8 pointed to a future time of sword, famine, and “deadly plague.”

    So why is this world in such a state, not only with viruses and diseases but also famine, wars and violence?

    Let me explain from the bible why...

    Most of us know the basic reason why life is this way which is directly due to Adam and Eve's choice to listen to Satan at the start of Mankind's history, but there is much more and the bible explains. When Satan led Adam and Eve into disobeying God, an important question was raised. Satan did not call into question God’s power. Even Satan knows that there is no limit to God’s power. Rather, Satan questioned God’s right to rule. By calling God a liar who withholds good from his subjects, Satan charged that God is a bad ruler. (Genesis 3:2-5) Satan implied that mankind would be better off without God’s rulership. This was an attack on God’s sovereignty, his right to rule.

    Additionally, Satan made Eve believe she would be free and independent of God, becoming like God. By this means this wicked spirit creature raised himself higher than God in Eve’s eyes, and Satan became her god, even though Eve, at the time, apparently did not know the identity of the one misleading her. By his action he brought man and woman under his leadership and control, standing up as a rival god in opposition to God.—Ge 3:1-7.

    It can it be no wonder our world is in such a state because it's current invisible ruler Satan (1 John 5:19) "We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one" This is the very reason why we need our spiritual suit of armour. With billions of angels and all creation watching on, Satan has been allowed to guide mankind under his rulership to settle the issue and that is why this world is in crisis.

    But note what the bible says here:

    (Revelation 12:9-12) So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! . . . . On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.”

    This Bible prophesy shows us that time is running out (2 Tim 3:1-5; Matthew 24) for Satan and he knows it. God through his kingdom has made a way out. God didn't have to but he did. At Armageddon, Jesus and his angels will remove Satan and his hoards and throw him in the Abyss then God's Kingdom (Daniel 2:44) with Jesus as King and those who have gone to heaven that "will rule as kings and priests over the earth" (revelation 5:10). Those who are not of the heavenly calling will live on the earth (Ps 37:11,29, Matthew 5:5). It is only going to get worse before it can get better. But these are the promises of the changes that will take place.

    The bible says:

    Wickedness, warfare, crime, and violence will be gone. “The wicked one will be no more . . . But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth.” (Psalm 37:10, 11)

    (Psalm 37:29) The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it.

    “The eyes of the blind ones will be opened.”—Isaiah 35:5

    “No resident will say: ’I am sick.‘”—Isaiah 33:24

    “There will come to be plenty of grain on the earth.”—Psalm 72:16

    There will be peace between humans and animals. Wild and domestic animals will feed together. Even a little child will have nothing to fear from animals that are now dangerous.—Isaiah 11:6-9; 65:25.

    The whole earth will become a paradise. Lovely new homes and gardens will occupy land that had once been ruined by sinful humans. (Isaiah 65:21-24; Revelation 11:18)

    This may make you wonder when will it come to an end?
