A bit about Oscar Wilde ...

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (October 16, 1854 November 30, 1900) was an Anglo-Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and short story writer. One of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day, known for his barbed and clever wit, he suffered a dramatic downfall and was imprisoned after being convicted in a famous trial of "gross indecency" for homosexual acts.

At least Oscar got the part right about God designing man. God did create man, but He didn't make any mistakes in the process. We are just as He planned and created us to be. What we do after that is our fault. We are the ones that bring about our problems and our mostly poor response to them.
