I am sure this topic has probably been discussed many times before but,......... I would like reassurance that I am not the only one who gagged every time I heard a JW pontificating on their fantasy version of what "Paradise" will be like. Particularly when it comes to the animals. More specifically, that the animals will all become vegetarians. Lions will graze on grass with antelope. Eagles will be using their talons to catch ripe fruit. Sharks will presumably begin eating seaweed and be very careful not to accidentally eat a seaweed crab or water insect in the process. Not only is this an utterly preposterous line of logic, it is totally unnecessary for Jehovah to change every single species on the planet and create an entirely new ecosystem simply to satisfy the moronic assumptions of some idiot JW's who cannot emotionally handle the idea that there are predators and prey in this world and no matter how hard they try to make figurative scriptures out to be literal, this one ain't happening!!
I once had an older elder, having been a "big wig" elder for many decades, after a book study tell me in no uncertain terms that not only will humans live forever in paradise but also Jehovah will make it so that none of the animals will ever die either. I AM NOT KIDDING!!!! He said it. I graciously asked him to reiterate it hoping he had misspoken. He said it again. I began to politely debate him. He got angry.
Another paradise assumption that I have heard several times over the years in Jdub-land: "The angels will prevent us from injuring ourselves in paradise."
