  • "Some" of them weren't evil...the vast majority of them were evil and had evil thoughts. I agree that it stinks for the innocents though

  • God shall giveth and God shall taketh.
    Because of human sin, we are all born sinful. God did give people a chance to save themselves from the flood, hence Noah and his family.
    How can you not think God is great? Just look at the what He has made/done for us sinners... He made the sunrise & sunset, the ocean, green grass, human life and His most gracious gift, sent us His Son to die for our sins. God is Great!!!

  • S*** Why bother creating people at all when he knew we would turn against him?? If man was evil from the start whose fault would that have been?? HMMMM Let's not forget that the flood accomplished nothing thus the need to destroy with fire. (Sodom and Gamorah)

  • Let's face it, god is sloppy, sloppy, sloppy! There were evil people before Noah's flood...and there were evil people after the flood. It accomplished exactly NOTHING. There were evil people before...and AFTER the fire and brimstone fell on Sodom and Gomorrah. Those murders accomplished, again, ZILCH. There are evil people today. Yahweh just couldn't get ANYTHING right!!! Typical man!!

  • "God is sloppy" - Wow... God is amazing! Take a look around you... who could make what he has made, the earth, day & night, the sky, ocean and people to just name a few.
    Yes, there were sinners "evil people" before Noah. But, God did not make sinful people - He made Adam and Eve in His own image - perfect. It was Adam & Eve who chose to sin. God always has given us a choice. God gave Adam and Eve one rule - to not eat from one tree. It was Satan who tempted them, not God and it was man's choice to listen or break the rules. It was man (Adam & Eve) who messed up, not God. If you want to blame someone for sin, blame man, not God, for man was originally created perfect.
    The flood did accomplish something - It shows us that God is all powerful.
    And... God is not a "typical man", he is not a man at all, for Jesus his Son is man, not God.
