All living creatures must kill to survive, whether they kill another animal or they kill a plant ( that is also alive of course), they must kill and have done so since the first living organism came to be.
To my mind, it is the presence of the nature of predators that destroys the "loving God" nonsense.
Any Creator who could invent herbivores has demonstrated the lack of necessity for carnivores.
DEATH for humans is a tragedy for humans. Give one rational argument why it isn't a tragedy for animals?
Animals can be loved by humans. Why are they not loved by the supposed originator of LOVE, God himself?
Humans imagine God wants to rescue them--but, their faith includes HUMAN SACRIFICE and drinking blood into the ritual of salvation!
Is there nothing shocking about this?
The scriptures give no answer except a shrug: "Whom shall we go away to, Lord, you have the sayings of life?"
The principle issue is not debated--it is only acknowledged. Very telling, indeed.
Blood rituals are beastly and so are the religions which incorporate DEATH into a sacrament.
