Why oh why must the animals in Eden be vegetarians? Tell us, please, oh Watchtower of light and Truth?
What does it imply were it not so?
Well, for one thing - it would imply (if animals ate meat in the Garden of Eden) that God was not stupid enough to create meat-eaters and then try to make them eat cantaloups. Another strange point (never, as far as I know, explained by the Watchtower) was whether there were animals OUTSIDE the Garden of Eden before Adam and Eve were thrown out. They seem to imply that all the animals were inside the Garden and thrown out with the humans in God's Wrath - but I could never understand exactly what the animals did wrong; really, not even the snake.
