Why leave out some of God's creatures?

    One thing I've noticed in the WT paradise pics is that they leave out many of God's wonderful creatures. Why aren't there more pictures of children petting cockroaches, tickling the bellies of snails and letting scorpions sit on their shoulders? If every animal is made by God, why be biased and leave some out?

    Spiders catching stray leaves in their webs, skunks letting off pleasing smells, mosquitoes eating grass, people having picnics next to ants nests...

    Why do they discriminate?

    Because it doesn't fit into the limited picture they've drawn in their mind, like serpents are obviously bad. It is the nature of us-against-them thinking to exclude the "others."

    -Just imagine going for a swim, and petting a great white shark as it nibbles on some sea weed (and if it's lucky, some roots from a tree), while smelling the water lilies (instead of blood, like now) from several hundred yards away. Beautiful.

    Not to be the serious guy, but if we're gonna go there peace amongst all creatures would clearly require evolution. But since we're not going to have that, guess we'll just leave them out. Not in MY world! (picture a JW bumper sticker to that effect)

    If it's always warm and sunny, will there still be penguins?

    Oh, yes, in paradise, we'll all be swimming around the mangroves with these deadly lovelies, wrapping their delicate tentacles lovingly around us: http://www.jurgenfreund.com/box_jellyfish_story/content/index.html
