1) God created a physical universe.

2) God created Adam with free will and put all things physical under his authority.

3) Adam abdicated that authority to Satan and Satan corrupted everything.

Q.E.D. You can’t blame the existence of cancer, tornadoes, bot flies, and entropy on God unless you’re thereby affirming a preference for having been created without a will of your own.

More or less... there are some disputes over details but that’s the general thrust of the fall of the creation. The old earth and young earth creation theological camps probably won’t see eye to eye anytime sooner than the return of the Lord, but both perceive a metaphysical shift, rooted in a spiritual shift, that came with men accepting the sin of the rebellious angels. And one important point to note, as in the case of the man born blind that Jesus healed, is that not all suffering is due to one’s own personal sins. It is part of being in a battle zone.
