Words of Comfort: "Strong circumstantial evidence that there is no god..."

An atheist wrote: "Strong circumstantial evidence that there is no god. Number of god's creations who died horrible deaths from the following diseases: (or did they all die as martyrs?)

1. 300,000,000 approx. Smallpox 
2. 200,000,000? Measles
3. 100,000,000 approx. Black Death 
4. 80,000,000-250,000,000 Malaria 
5. 50,000,000-100,000,000 Spanish Flu 
6. 40,000,000-100,000,000 Plague of Justinian 
7. 40,000,000-100,000,000 Tuberculosis 
8. 30,000,000[13] AIDS pandemic 
9. 12,000,000 ? Third Pandemic of Bubonic Plague
10. 5,000,000 Antonine Plague 
11. 4,000,000 Asian Flu 
12. 250,000 or more annually Seasonal influenza."

Ray replied: The number of people who are now living that will eventually die. Every one of the seven billion. That's more than strong circumstantial evidence that God means what He says is His Word: "The souls that sins, it shall die," "It is appointed to man once to die. After this, the Judgment." Pain, suffering, disease and death are stark proofs that the Bible is the Word of God when it says we live in a "fallen" creation.
