Why is there evil in the world?

This is for the religous people out there. If your God is: a)omnipotent (all powerful) b)omniscient (all knowing) c)all loving (do you need and explanation??) how could there possibly be evil in the world. God would have know before he created the world that people would have wars with one another if he is omniscient, therefore if he is also all loving, he wouldn't want that to happen, and if he is all powerful, why can't he stop it. I would like to anticipate a response if I may and answer it before it comes up 'well, God wants us to learn from our mistakes' Ok, say you have a child, sure there comes a point where you have to let in go out on its on and learn, but if it's in the middle of the road, about to be knocked down you would drag it out of the road however long it's lived right? Well, the world is clearly at that point, we know the problems, but they are so big we are incapable of doing anything about them ourselves, so where is he?
