    5 After the Flood, mankind started anew with just eight souls. In a declaration applying to all humans, God revealed more about his evaluation of life and blood. He said that humans could eat animal flesh, but he set this restriction: “Every moving animal that is alive may serve as food for you. As in the case of green vegetation, I do give it all to you. Only flesh with its soul—its blood—you must not eat.” (Genesis 9:3, 4) Some Jews interpret that to mean that humans were not to eat flesh or blood of an animal that was still alive. But time would clearly show that what God was here prohibiting was the consuming of blood to sustain life. Moreover, God’s decree through Noah was a major step forward in working out His elevated purpose involving blood—a purpose that would allow humans to gain everlasting life.

    Is this article trying to prove that Genesis 9:4 is NOT speaking of eating an animal still alive by jumping ahead to the Mosaic law?

    Yes, but only the amount removed by slaughter--about half--not the Jewish idea of removing as much as you can which, ironically, the JWs leaders call fanatic.
