I know what my Bible tells me:
Romans 9:20 "Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?"
Dude, your an atheist, why are you taking these guys' side? Anyway, deformities are a reminder of the curse, it's not like God wanted them to be deformed, it's simply a result of the curse. It's not a punishment.
