God's Death Toll


People and cities slaughtered by God or on his orders.


And NO! I don't hate god because he killed a bunch of people. Do you hate Jason Vorhees because he
killed a bunch of people? You cannot hate things which do not exist.

The number dead if stated is listed to the left. I have starred my personal favorite "acts of God,"
as far as
meanness and utter disregard for innocence or guilt. Anyone who thinks TV is violent should read
book. The random unjustified slaughter is amazing.

Grand Total:

more than 399,933 people killed by "God"

...going only on the numbers listed (not counting, oh, say, the entire population of the world at
the time
of Noah, 3 cities, and other such things that were not enumerated in the Bible).

more than 2,017,956 people killed by followers of God

...not even counting the 65 cities they destroyed without seeing fit to give any numbers.


Oh, and we don't want to forget...

? -- Satan killed Job's children after God told him that he could.

Whew!... what a bad guy in comparison with our just and merciful Lord God.
