Still, which biblical passage did you quote? The only one that even comes close in any English translation of the Bible I've read is Ecclesiastes 3:21...but that refers to animal spirits and in any event the passage appears to be more about wondering out loud, not God declaring a fact.

Regardless, though, how does a later reward justify the unnecessary and terrifying deaths of all those animals? And why would you call anyone good who by definition could have avoided doing such a horrible thing yet didn't bother to? That's what bothers me.

Let me ask you this: If not ordering babies to be murdered, women to be raped, rape victims to marry their rapists, threatening to force people to cannibalize their own children, condoning slaves being beaten so badly they can't even stand for days...what acts WOULD God have to commit in order for you to consider him evil? Can you answer that question?
