I didn't use the word "persecute". You did. I used the word "insult". Was your quote above not an insult? If not, what exactly did you mean by that?

I read everything you wrote to me.

What is supposed to be the moral in the myth of the flood? That god will just murder everyone? I'll never understand the people who tell this story to others as if the genocide of man was a good thing.

Did you NOT notice the bolded? I didn't feel persecuted, but I did believe you intended to insult me. Am I wrong?

The message is, God is patient, but judgment is coming!

Judgment? Do you think that the people described in genesis 6 had a fair trial? The flood killed every man, woman, child, baby and unborn being on the planet a century after he decided that he regretted having made man.

One would think that such an omniscient deity would have known what was going to happen before he started. Poor observation and forward planning eh?

More than fair. They had hundreds of years of warnings, but continued their evil lifestyles.
