Do you remember being with a group of witnesses looking at some cute little animal and everyone saying, "Oooh! Isn't Jehovah sooo wooooonderful!!!" Of course, most other Christians are just as prone to utter such insipid, sugary and idiotic expressions.
The cats and dogs that we often dote on are the result of hundreds of years of breeding out undesirable traits, but their original ancestors survived by catching and tearing to pieces cute, cuddly little animals who are stricken with terror as they are hunted. Even our domestic cats, if uncontrolled, are responsible for wiping out entire species of cute cuddly little animals, who themselves are often carnivores and who exist by catching and eating other terror-stricken cute cuddly little animals.
I was thinking of this the other day when I had occasion to read Psalm 104, particularly verse 21:
"The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God."
So, according to YHWH's inspired word, YHWH gives them their food, the cute, cuddly animals that christians coo about, and tell each other "Isn't YHWH (or Jesus, depending on the Christians's particular brand loyalty.
And, btw, the "inspired" record is in error in the reason it gives for lions roaring. They are not roaring after their prey. They roar as a way of marking their territory.
Quote: "Lions roar to tell other lions where they are, to show how big they are and to warn lions from other prides to keep away from their home territory. They do this mostly just before sunrise and sunset when they are most active."
African Lion and Environmental Research:
If ever you want to think that Psalm 104 reflects anything wonderful about YHWH or his little mate, Jesus, then just recall how he gives 'food' to lions
and even to the ancestors of you faithful fido, who is usually (but not always) friendly to humans, because their innate savagery has been bred out of them over thousands of years.
So why does anyone give any credence to this stupid book.
