I take it from your statement

I take it from your statement that you concede that the old testament god is indeed cruel and interventionist. That is my point. If wiping out life on the planet with a giant flood isn't interventionist, I don't know what is. In general, all gods are interventionists. Mullen could make a better argument for nature being non-interventionist. God does not fit into that definition by any stretch of the imagination.
