Suffering is very real. Just because they're biochemical (like gravity is a natural force), doesn't mean that you neglect the cause, or effect (of suffering, or gravity), once you understand its constituency.
Only a heartless, inhumane person would seriously stand by the immoral comments you have made. Thankfully, you yourself say you don't believe them.
But you also say you believe in God who, after all, created suffering as part of a 'good' creation, so I'm not entirely sure that you are sincere in your disclaiming of suffering.
Yes, people have a nature that lends itself to the understanding of suffering, but, this nature is driven by natural needs, genetics and experience (the famous genotype/phenotype or nature & nature dichotomies).
For all your talk, you haven't actually provided any evidence or logical reason why a god would exist, could exist, or does exist. What, exactly, are you trying to prove?
