One more question of logic (or maybe non-logic)...
* animals have always died.
* animals, however, did not use tooth and claw to ever kill one another before the flood.
Why the hell not? They were certainly built for the job, made of tasty meat & such, and were going to die anyway?
If Cain never saw a lion or such kill a deer, how did he know what to do with that wimp brother of his?
OK, just one more -
Did animals also live the animal year equivalents of 900+ years like post - Eden humans? WT wisdom says the water canopy protected humans from the dangerous sun --- why wouldn't it also protect animals?
Can someone make any sense at all out of this whole thing?
