The constant refrain from atheists is that God is a murderer, condemning millions to their death. Before one makes accusation of murder, do
1. Is an artist a 'murderer', if he destroys his own works? No. Like an artist, our Creator made us and gave us free will, with far more
capabilities than an art work, yet we disappointed him time and time again with the misuse of free will.
2. We this modern generation, espacially in these modern times, many have NO ideas on how our ancestors lived. It was barbaric and a time where law of
the jungles ruled. The most recent time we can recall of such barbarity is during the 19th century Papau New Guinea.
When a New Guinean invite you to dinner, he LITERALLY meant you are the main course. And that's only mild compared to what our ancient ancestors had
done. Would you prefer to live in those times, where you and your loved ones are dinner? Where serving mankind is LITERALLY meant?
I doubt so. It had been an act of mercy to destroy those ancestors whom had misused free will as well as the innocents then, or the sufferings would
Today, there are countries that allow euthanesia. I value human life, but if I am incapicitated, and have no hope for life, or as a vegetable on life
support, I would want to terminate my own life. No because I wish to, for I will fight all the way to live, but with the cost of medicine, I would
never want to saddle my loved ones and society with debts to keep me alive as a vegetable. Euthanesia, or death, would be a mercy for all.
Similarly so if I had lived during the barbaric ages. Death would be a mercy if the majority indulges in wild abandoned barbarism. A final form of

3. There is no need to believe what the insignificant and nobody me wrote here. I know I have no power to convince anyone, let alone deep seated
atheist, nor wish to. But I would suggest one to read the bible a few times to comprehend what it is all about.
Then cross reference with historical, anthropological, archeological, palentropological records of other civilisations that existed during those
times. They were certainly not like modern times and will never justify using our current standards against our barbarian ancestors.
And only then will you too get tired of the 'God is a murderer' refrain, like a tired old worn out tape recorder, and finally comprehend why it had
to be done. Ignorance may be bliss, but when the truth is finally revealed to you, it will be so painful and the worst hell on Earth you can ever
imagine, over wasted opportunities to grow but instead banging one's head on the wall consistantly to support lies and delusions.
