Try again God?

I've considered many times that God could just fix it all right now. You know, send another flood or some other sort of earth sanitizing event and get rid of the pain, sickness, death, violence and what-not once and for all. But the book of Genesis (and the original flood) give us a glimps into God's thinking.

Genesis 6:5-8 (The Message)

God saw that human evil was out of control. People thought evil, imagined evil—evil, evil, evil from morning to night. God was sorry that he had made the human race in the first place; it broke his heart. God said, "I'll get rid of my ruined creation, make a clean sweep: people, animals, snakes and bugs, birds—the works. I'm sorry I made them." But Noah was different. God liked what he saw in Noah.

And I suspect there is something about you and me that he likes too. You see; (also from Genesis)

God spoke: "Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature. .... God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God's nature

That would be you and me too, and clearly, God must like what He sees...
