God kills babies...
I'm sure you have heard of the story of Noah's ark and the great flood. This is the first time in the Bible where God killed every single baby on earth. Every single tiny baby just drowned to death. What did that baby do wrong?
A little, tiny, helpless, defenseless baby is incapable of doing anything on their own. If you set a baby on the ground, they just sit there and wiggle and coo and do #babystuff. They are neither good nor bad. They are the most pure and innocent being out there. Babies of almost any species are innocent.
If you raise a human baby in a household where everyone cheers for the Dallas cowboys, that baby is going to grow up to be a fan of the Dallas cowboys.
If you raise a baby in a household that speaks english, that baby is going to grow up speaking english. If you raise a baby in a household that practices christianity, again, that baby will just adapt to his upbringing.
A baby is just a blank canvas. An empty sponge.
A baby is neither good nor evil. A baby is just pure innocence.
God just killed all those babies like they were nothing. He killed them because he saw evil in the hearts of the people. Isn't killing little, tiny, helpless, defenseless babies evil? If you did that in today's day and age, you would either be shot down where you stand or sent to jail. As a society, we see killing babies as a bad thing. But also, due to the brainwashing of the cult of christianity, people see killing babies as a good and necessary thing. I have never found a situation where it was required or necessary or helpful to kill a baby.
And with the flood, god also killed all the expectant mothers and the unborn fetuses as well. God kills babies and is a mass abortionist. That is, according to the bible.
When we move forward in the stories of the bible, we come across stories like Sodom and Gomorrah. Again, God was mad at the adults so he killed all these tiny, helpless babies who were just trying to do #babystuff.
Venturing on in the bible, we come to another story where God was mad at one specific person so he kills babies. God was mad at the pharaoh of egypt. The Pharaoh is much like the mayor or the governor or the president of an area. God was mad at the pharaoh so he killed other people's babies. He didn't kill the pharaoh. God killed other people's babies. That would be like God being mad at the president and killing our babies as a result. Well a lot of people don't agree with the president. A lot of people wish they had a different president or could live somewhere else. But most of us are stuck in our environments. So why does my innocent child have to die because this guy over here is mad at that guy over there?
That's a tad bit irrational, don't you think?
Let's take a moment now and do another thought experiment. What could God have done other than kill babies? Let's go back to the flood and use that as our example. God said that the hearts of men were evil so he had to flood the earth.
God designed and created man. A man can't fly and a tree can't walk. We can only do what we are designed to do. If I turn on the stove and then burn my hand on it, do I get mad at the stove for being hot?
Many Christians will say that we have free will so that we are able to choose between good and evil. What about the babies that got killed? Do they have free will? God killed them before they were able to even say their first words.
So what could God have done differently? Maybe God could have made an appearance. He appears in different ways to his people in many stories throughout the bible. Why couldn't he have just done that instead of killing all these little babies?
If the hearts of man were truly unchangeable at this point, then why not have Noah and his crew save the babies? Babies, along with the rest of humanity, are just disposable pawns in God's narcissistic game of getting as many people to worship him as possible.
When we look at the story of the pharaoh, God was trying to get the pharaoh to let his people go. What else could God have done instead of killing babies if he truly was a good god?
Again, he could have made an appearance to the pharaoh. He sent two of his followers with some parlor tricks to try and convince the pharaoh. God could have made an appearance himself. God could have wiped out the pharaoh's guards. God could have put the Pharaoh in excruciating pain until the pharaoh abided with God's demands. God could have lined up the Pharaoh and his people one at a time, asked them if they would follow God's demands and have them drop dead if they said no and then move on to the next person. If no one was left, then God's people could rule egypt.
What other ideas do you have that God could have done instead of killing tiny, little, defenseless, helpless babies?
The same goes for Sodom and Gomorrah. God has appeared in different ways to many of his people. Why couldn't he just appear to those people instead of killing all of those babies?
As bonus reading, look into the story of lot fleeing the city of sodom. It starts with lot offering his daughters up to the townspeople to be raped and the story ends with his daughters getting lot so drunk that he didn't know what was going on and his daughter's raped him.
Caution! The Bible should not be read around young innocent people.
