Hello and welcome to the adventures of your everyday atheist! I stand for social justice and am completely pro-equality, but I strongly disagree with the tumblr-type social justice warrior bullshit. Also, my ask box is always open. No but really, it is open to anything and everything.
For a blog with less of a point, I have a personal account: thelifeandtimesof-amanda.tumblr.com
I was told by my Rabbi that people had only committed minor sins, but that these sins became so commonplace that the people eventually failed to recognize them as sins. Thus God felt the need to destroy them all because they could not distinguish between good and evil. I fail to see why God could not have simply educated them on the evil of their ways instead of punishing them all, let alone drowning them all. Also there is no Mosaic law at this point, so I don’t see how the people could have known any better.
In the story, God killed many innocent people, for surely, not everyone on the entire planet was committing whatever crime it was that God thinks should be punishable by death. In fact, everyone except Noah (and his wife?) were drowned, along with so many innocent animals. To me, this seems unnecessary and exceedingly violent.
