fig leaves were used to cover adam and eve in all the stories.
and. . . come on now. genesis page one! "and i give you all herbs bearing seed and all trees bearing fruit; for you it shall be meat." or something along those lines translated to english.
and we are meant to have dominion over animals and treat them with love and care for them as brothers on this planet. they are like children to us. and incidentally, that's their level of intelligence too, is that of children -- they function at around a four year old's level according to intelligence tests i've heard of... it's our responsibility to care for and protect them. not to devour them and bury their tortured soul vessels in our colon to rot there and putrefy.
btw our colon is multiple times the length of our bodies - - which makes it very very difficult to digest flesh with no fiber! why would our beautiful creator of mercy and love ever! ever! create us with such an inherent problem if we were meant to consume dead flesh/"meat"
thanks for this! any more?
what more do you need? :o))
And I guess that God recommended intensive factory farming! This is the system under which the vast majority of the world's animals are raised.
I'm sure this was not part of God's vision - if it was then God is inherently cruel.
I'm not a believer and the statement 'animals are here for humans to use' is not being subject to 'critical thinking' by your religious friend.
"though shall not kill"
Exactly!! Nuff said hey Jesse!?!?
