It makes me laugh when people defend god's killing of all these people for being wicked since he knew that they were going to be wicked before he created them. He knew they wouldn't meet his high standards, and he knew he would kill them, and yet he created the people anyways, even the infants that had had zero chance to engage in said wickedness. The quote, "Kill one man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill them all, and you are a god." is extremely relevant here.

Same thing goes for the story of Adam and Eve: people say that it was a test to see if Adam and Eve loved him willingly or because they had no other options, but it wasn't a test. God knew exactly what was going to happen before he ever created Adam and Eve, he knew Original Sin would come into being, and yet he ******* did it anyways. God strikes me as a sociopath.

Of course, you can claim that these stories are all figurative stories that are meant to teach life lessons and morals, but how do you determine what's figurative and what's literal? It seems like things stop being taken literally once they're either shown to be scientifically impossible or no longer in vogue with society.
