5. "God does not pick a group" - tribal gods do.

 

Read your bible. The Torah specifically.

Universal gods also "pick a group" - for example in christianity generally those who submit to the god are "chosen" while those that don't are "damned".

Historically both Islam and Christianity have used violence to enforce obedience to their religions. Both have used lethal force to eliminate non-believers.

Despite all your protestations, your argument is yet again another no true scotsman argument that self-servingly defines out of a data set those elements that disprove whatever assertion is being made.
