Proof that God has ever killed anyone?

Can an atheist provide proof that God has ever killed anyone?

As far as I'm aware of, they can't - whereas all the evidence actually indicates that science has killed millions, if not billions such as:

*Nuclear warfare
*Gas chambers
*Gun violence
*Pollution and man-made global warming
*Given terrorist's the bombs and airplanes they needed to blow up buildings.
*Tools used for racial and sexual discrimination (e.x. IQ tests used to discriminate against black people and women)

So all the evidence shows that science, not God, is responsible for most of the deaths and violence in world history. What can an atheist do, other than deny this?

Here's a more useful question, & one that can be answered:

How many people throughout history have died in religious wars, or of attacks due to differences of religion?

Invoking legal (or logical) proof is amusing - didn't you just spend scads of time & effort in all those other threads proving that science, reason, thought, legal jurisprudence, justice et al. are all mere vaporings of would-be elites, hankering for the good old days when Whatever was, was right?

The Bible says God has slaughtered thousands if not millions. Some of them innocent children. So the Bible is a total fake ? The stories are all lies ? If so, why should anyone put even the slightest bit of faith in it ? Why would anyone believe a book so filled with lies ?

If that’s the case then your entire religion is based on lies.

None.

No one goes to war to force you into their church. Wars are all fought for the same thing, which is power and loot.

The Crusades are a golden example as they pillaged the Holy Land for Gold and other valuables. When they returned, kings feared them because they were more wealthy than they, so the state tried to confiscate the loot, but to no avail.

No one knows where all their loot actually ended up.

But nice try, again, religion is used as a tool for the power hungry, but not ever the reason.

The trap there - presumably - is that an atheist can't invoke the Bibles as proof.

If God slaughtered them, then they weren't innocent, now were they?

War is war, read up on the history of it and what the standards of warfare are, and have been historically, so that we can be spared your histrionics.

If your argument is "killing people is wrong" - which is a given, and that's where your logic or understanding of warfare stops, whether current or present, then it's not really worthy of a serious debate - laws against killing or murder, for example, don't apply to warfare or police - the standards are different in those types of violent situations.

Correct, for gold - so for secular reasons, not Godly ones - proving my point.

First off, God doesn't exist so I guess technically you are correct. But pretend you believe God created the world and everything in it

* BActeria and viruses kills billions- god made those
* Most fertilized embryos don't implant into the uterus or even begin to develop, god killed them
* every natural disaster that has killed billions
* every child who didn't survive birth or for long becuase of genetic mutations
* animals that kill humans

All those are natural things that kill, and if you believe god
