* In the bible the word slaughter appears 56 times, slay appears 118 times, slew shows up 171 times, and smote is written 226 times. These numbers do not include destroy, smoteth, slayeth, die, etc. It would be interesting

* Over the course of the Bible, "loving god" Yahweh personally kills at least 2.3 million people. This ONLY includes times the bible gives an exact number of people killed so does not include the flood that killed everyone on the planet save for one family, Sodom and Gamorah, the first born children of Egypt, the Midianites, or COUNTLESS others. For a frame of reference, 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. God kills almost half that many just in the few situations where the bible tells us exactly how many he killed. The true number is likely over 50 million. For a list of all the numbers and the verses that give them go here: http://dwindlinginunbelief.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-many-has-god-killed-revised.html

*Several times in the bible, Yahweh condones or even orders women to be raped, in Deuteronomy he commands that rape victims should be killed. Ref: Judges 21:10-24, Numbers 31:7-18, Deuteronomy 20:10-14, Deuteronomy 22:28-29, Deuteronomy 22:23-24, 2 Samuel 12:11-14, Deuteronomy 21:10-14, Judges 5:30, Zechariah 14:1-2

*God is pro-life? Really, because in Hosea 9:11-16, Numbers 5:11-21, Numbers 31:17, Hosea 13:16, and 2 Kings 15:16 he essentially performs thousands of abortions himself.

* While not pro-life, our "loving God" IS, apparently pro-cannibalism as shown in Leviticus 26:29, Deuteronomy 28:53, Jeremish 19:9, and Ezekial 5:8-10. 4 separate times he mentions forcing parents to eat their children or vice versa.

* Examples of Yahweh's sadism - Numbers 15:32-36 (orders a man stoned to death for gathering sticks on the sabbath), Numbers 25:4 (orders Moses to hang decapitated heads in the sun to satisfy his anger), Joshua 7:19-26 (for stealing, not only is the thief stoned and then burned to death so are his children, oxen, sheep, and donkeys.)

* Throughout the bible Yahweh displays genocidal tendencies that put Adolf Hitler to shame, particularly in Joshua - one of the sickest, most sadistic bits of fiction ever written. Under command (and sometimes with the help) of God, Joshua:
1) Kills all men, women, children, and animals in the city of Jericho (Joshua 6:21-27),
2) kills 12,000 men and women of Ai (Joshua 8:22-25),
3) Yahweh decided to actually pitch in and help as Joshua destroyed all the people of Gibeon (Joshua 10:10-27)
4) kills all the people of Makkedah (Joshua 10:28)
5) and the Libnahites (Joshua 10:30)
6) and the people of Lachish... (Joshua 10:32-33)
7) and the Eglonites (Joshua 10:32-33)
8) and the Ebronites (Joshua 10:36-37)
9) and the Debirites (Joshua 10:38-39)
These genocidal tendencies continue into Judges and Samuel, but I'll stop here. I think my point is made.

* The inevitable fundie response to the last fact is that god kills all to stop the spread of evil... well, almost everyone. Judges 21:1-14 - Yahweh send 12,000 men from Israel to Jabesh Gilead where they are ordered to kill all men, children, and ALMOST all women - but not the virgins. The virgins are given as sex slaves to the Benjamites.
