2 - many animals consent to same sex sexual acts, bonobos being one example. if to your mind same sex saxual acts between animals is not the same as humans doing it, what would you say makes if different?
3 - beef may not be ...[text shortened]... d them about the correct diet they would need to eat to make sure they got the correct vitamins?
1.It appears to me not only to answer it but as to give a reason why, we are no
longer living in a physical paradise.
2. absolute nonsense, there is no evidence that animals commit consensual sex and
as i have demonstrated its utter folly to attempt to make animal and human sexual
behaviour synonymous, citing examples of cohabitation is equally absurd, are my
tropical fish all homos because they share the same aquarium, no? what about my
rabbits, no, well, your clutching at straws. Typical materialistic bilge. Why dont you
try multiple sexual partners, let us notice how it affects your relationship with your
wife if animal sexual behaviour is no different from human. What about my rabbits,
they are brother and sister and would have engaged in an incestuous sexual
relationship had the wee man not had his goolies lopped off by the Vet. Is incest
acceptable for humans also? Clearly not.
3. that beefs tastes good to humanity is an appeal to popular opinion and proves
4. You are not reading what i have written or failing to comprehend it, the Bible
states animals ARE souls, do you know the difference between possessing
something and being something.
5. What are you talking about? God himself gave them the mandate, you think he
might produce the necessary diet to comply with the physical needs of their bodies,
(Genesis 1:29) And God went on to say: “Here I have given to you all vegetation
bearing seed which is on the surface of the whole earth and every tree on which
there is the fruit of a tree bearing seed. To you let it serve as food.
are not all essential vitamins contained within fruit and vegetables? hmmm? all
essential amino acids contained in honey? hmmm? ever seen a rhinoceros go to the
gym to build muscle? what about a bull? No neither have I.
