It’s a showdown!
Who is responsible for the most?
According to the Bible (yes, YOUR king James Bible)
this is number of God vs Satan deaths that the two main deities are responsible for.
GOD 2.27 million+, Satan 10(not million, just 10)
- This list does not include the deaths in the flood, first born males during Passover or Sodom & Gomorrah as there is no accurate count on these.
- That is a lot of God vs Satan deaths in the Bible.
Satan killed only 10;
the seven sons and three daughters of Job (he did that as part of a bet with Job).
And you put your faith in whom?I’m just asking.

That’s all in the Bible (that I know of) about God vs Satan deaths.
My final thoughts.
Since God doesn’t actually exist most of these God vs Satan deaths were probably due to natural events (disease, disasters, men being A-holes to each other) it’s fun to compare the numbers.
