Try to guess how many people God killed in the Bible

You know, God killed a ton of people in the Bible. Know what they had in common? They all refused to believe in him, acknowledge him, or do what he said.

However don't get the idea that God is just a mean guy, he's more than a God of judgement and wrath. In the book of Jonah, it details how God spared an entire city that was full of sin and hateful in his sight. Why? Because they repented. Isn't God cool? All you gotta do is repent and he forgets... Sign me up for that!

I thought it might be interesting to see everyone's answers. When he killed the entire population of Earth during the great flood, how many people do you think that was? It's a shame they did not repent, but you can't dwell on the past.

Also, Do you think Satan has a higher body count than God? I would think since God is more powerful, he could kill way more people. Is that not a logical conclusion? Some of you may think this is sick, but my reasoning is since God made man, it's his right to unmake man. Thus, it was merciful of God to make the decision that he would allow humankind to continue via Noah. Do you understand what I'm saying?

I agree with you that the Abrahamic Bible is evil and absurd, but this is something that really should have stayed inside PbN Atheists...at least something this specific :/

Oh, and for my ballpark estimate,
God: 2,038,244
Satan: 10

Depends on your view.

Were the crusades the work of God or the devil?

Lots of people died. That's for sure.

They were the work of stupid humans who thought it would be good to make people conform to their beliefs. Not the first time nor will it be the last.

The Flood? Sodom and Gomorrah? Lot's Wife?

But was that the work of God or the devil?

He as an atheist does not believe in either and therefore is saying that it is the work of man and only man.

in my opinion, kingtas, it is the work of god. the reason is because without the crusades christianity would be so much more limited and not as widespread, it's an obvious act that even though there was violence, it was part of gods plan and needed to happen.

Haha. Erm. Not such a brilliant thing to say. Certainly doesn't reflect well on God. God requires violence to spread 'truth'? The omnipotent deity can't spread love and unity in less violent ways? Certainly suffering isn't a prerequisite for the expansion of faith.

No, Jesus suffered for us. But it was all part of his plan and he allowed them to crusade in order to spread his word.

That in no way, shape, or form, refuted my point.

Because the best way to win converts is to slaughter everyone in the city.
