I guess I'd take the Book of Job over the Book of Numbers: God is one mean bastard, and everyone thinks everyone else deserves what they get. None of us do, and that's one of the real nuggets of wisdom in the Bible.
Of course, that's Old Testament, which is Jewish.
Besides, most mathematicians I've met have been a decent sort, so that shows your slander right there.
