And straight from the mouth of god (supposedly):

1 Samuel 15: 3 “Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.”

Ezekiel 5: 15 “...I shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes.”

Ezekiel 20: 13 “...I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.”

“Most of the Israelites did not come from outside Canaan - they emerged from within it. There was no mass Exodus from Egypt…no violent conquest of Canaan. The early Israelites were - irony of ironies - themselves originally Canaanites!

The conquest of Canaan by Joshua could not have happened [as] described in the Bible. Most of the towns…either weren’t inhabited, didn’t exist or were conquered at wildly different times.” —Finkelstein and Silberman

Genesis 6:17 - “And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.”

I belive that trouble begins when God can be seen as having any form of intent at all smile But yes, I agree with you, it’s worse when he’s a sociopath.
