Creation is not evil; the Divine did not make a mistake to put us here.
Some mystical traditions of old believed the world is created by an evil God, a Demiurge. Some Christian mystics believed one can only be close to God away from creation, typically in the desert where no people, no animal, no being can defile one's superior awareness. Some people blaspheme, saying the Divine created evil and defiled beings (like pigs, dogs and women) and the spiritual seeker should refrain from association with those. Typically, when summer storms bring much needed rain and nutrition it is good but when they flood towns, kill people it is an act of God's retribution. Nowadays, too many people enjoy open windows only for a week in late Spring. They switch to air conditioning as soon as the furnace stops working. A fly in one's house can nowadays drive a family around the bend. Few people walk barefoot, most people have all but lost touch with reality.
