I appreciate your sentiment, the question I would ask is whether the earth also is as it was created. See, I see the whole matter this way.
God made Earth, God made Man to tend the Earth, Man rebelled against God, God stepped back and let things occur without his hand in it, in order that man may exercise his charge that Man does not need God..
The Earth and Man have currently been left untended for a long time, supported in little by God outside of a long term restoration plan. This is why neither man nor the earth operate as they should, suffering is a breaking down of the body, natural disasters are caused by a breaking down of nature, the earth and its atmosphere.
So if death is to be done away with, then the breaking down of the body must also, Jesus supposed life for instance showed that he had power over sickness, death and the elements. If of course the story were to be believed. In the Eden story, so it was told, there was a tree from which if Adam were to eat, he would not die. If this was the case, then Gods plan for Adam would not have involved death.
