Why? Do you believe that Gene Wolfe pictures God like this?

God, the real one, the omniscient and omnipotent one, intends for
everybody to die.

Why should he not, now and again, intend for a whole bunch of people to
die at about the same time?

In fact, he does, as geological history and traditional story both show.

Promises in Genesis and so on to not do this and that can easily be taken
for the wishful thinking of the humans who wrote the book, or wrote it
