  1. Numbers 31:18:

    >Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man by lying with him. But all the young girls who have not known man by lying with him keep alive for yourselves.

  2. The “god of love” orders you to execute disobedient children:

    If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death.
    –Deuteronomy 21:18

    Not the ONLY time Yahweh showed an inordinate interest in killing children, either.

  3. Eve wasn’t Adams first wife.

    Lilith was first but made the same way as Adam so she was equal. Adam wanted a more subservient mate so God used Adams rib to make Eve.

    Alot of stories ended up on the cutting room floor.

  4. Some versions of the Bible describe Yahweh creating man twice. But that has been scrubbed out of other editions, presumably to avoid confusing the rubes.
