Yes, but God knew they would do this, therefore we, the people of today, are not.

The burden of proof rests on you. There is no physical evidence suggesting the existence of a God. Religion has made the claim that God exists for the past 2,000 years, has shown absolutely nothing to back up said claim, and then questions anyone who asserts that God doesn't exist with absolutely absurd questions about proving he doesn't. When you make a claim, you back it up. You don't ask other people to disprove it. It's like telling people "my dick is 10 inches long," then when they don't believe you, you tell them "well, prove that it isn't!"

I'm tired of religious people changing the definition of God to work around rational questions about his non-existence. Things like we can't understand the "mind of God," or that he works in "mysterious ways". That isn't proof of anything. This is a debate, goddamit.
I don't need proof that God exists in the way you think. You are correct, there is no proof in that way, and thats why its called a blind faith.

He's not angry though. Just a little misunderstood.

"The LORD is a jealous God, filled with vengeance and wrath. He takes revenge on all who oppose him and furiously destroys his enemies! The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished. He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm. The billowing clouds are the dust beneath his feet. At his command the oceans and rivers dry up, the lush pastures of Bashan and Carmel fade, and the green forests of Lebanon wilt. In his presence the mountains quake, and the hills melt away; the earth trembles, and its people are destroyed. Who can stand before his fierce anger? Who can survive his burning fury? His rage blazes forth like fire, and the mountains crumble to dust in his presence. The LORD is good. When trouble comes, he is a strong refuge. And he knows everyone who trusts in him. But he sweeps away his enemies in an overwhelming flood. He pursues his foes into the darkness of night. (Nahum 1:2-8)"
God does have anger that we understand here against his enemies in this quote. When I was talking before about how God's anger doesn't always appear the way we think. (I didn't write always then, but it is correct).
