I feel like I have to explain this too often. God knows the hearts of everyone. He killed all of those people because they were evil, because the earth had come to something God did not want it to be, and he preserved Adam's lineage because they were the only ones living the way they were supposed to live.

"But babies aren't evil!"

They can be from a biblical perspective, as all humans are born with the burden of the original sin. God may give life and take it away, because he gave it in the first place. We can't because we didn't.

What's that free will thing good for anyway.

God knew these people would be wicked before they came to be, and yet he created them anyways. Not only that, but killing people for wickdness runs directly counter to the ideal of free will, since he restricted their free will by killing them. He also took away any chance of redemption those people would have had if they continued living.

omnipotent would imply that he will see what will happen in advance, thus he knows everything that will happen and is basically creating evil and then smiting it, hes a dick

‘God may give life and take it away, because he gave it in the first place. We can't because we didn't.’

So it's cool if I kill my children then?

You cannot give your children life. You could have a child that dies in the womb and you have no control over that. Life as it is understood biblically is more than a biological process, and humans are not capable of "giving" live at all, we may merely lay a path for it.

Why did God create evil babies. Don't give me that free will crap because it only contradicts the whole 'God has a plan' thing

Not sure if you're trolling or not, but I'll explain this to you anyway.
God didn't create those people as evil. As time progressed after the population grew on earth, people began to stray from the path of God's teachings. They had wars and conflicts, greed was common, and very few people still followed in the footsteps of god.

And yet He created Adam and Eve with full knowledge of what humanity would become (being omniscient and all).

Sure, but that's the price of free will. Allowing people the choice to be evil is what grants meaning to a love of God. If humans could not help but love God, if we couldn't choose evil and we were only capable of being good, that love wouldn't be worth much at all. It would be like writing yourself a fan letter.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that we have the free will to find God, and that is essentially his plan.
