    In my line of building work. Insects ofted come in line with my diamond disc cutter.

    If I notice them . I knock them out of the way so they can live.

    If I dont notice them. they get killed.

    The way I see it. I dont have the right to take any life. We are all here to share the planet.

    If there is a god ,creator or whatever.we are not any more special then every other living thing on the planet.

    I am not a friek . Just an 18stone builder.

    Why is it, do you think, that if you don't notice a kid in the street and he gets killed by your truck, you get prosecuted? But when you don't notice the bug in the path of your lethal saw, the police don't get called in?

    Because people make the laws and not bugs. If bugs made the laws then I'm sure things would be very different.

    Why don't bugs make the laws?

    A noble sentiment, not killing a bug. I don't think so, it is a bug,
    and within the world of bugs they rip each other to pieces, eat
    whatever they want, be it each other our homes, our gardens,
    our trees whatever, they simply are what they are, bugs. I don't
    believe for a moment that the life of a bug is on par or equal to a
    human, any human, I don't think millions of bugs are equally as
    valuable as any human either. I find them in or around my home,
    they die, by the hundreds, the thousands, whatever number I
    happen to run across them. If they are not bothering me or
    anything I care about, I leave them alone, I will not go out of my
    way to do anything for, or against them, they are but bugs to me.

    What does the Bible say about killing bugs? Is it not wrong to kill an animal, except to eat its meat and use its skin?

    It says nothing about bugs that I can think of, nothing comes to mind
    anyway. While animals there are rules in the OT, mainly on eating,
    cooking, and so on. Within the NT we are to be kind and good
    stewards of what God has given us, so being cruel for the joy of it is
    not something I would say God wants out of us. There are bugs I'd
    leave alone, like lady bugs in a garden since they kill things that I do
    not want in my garden.

    humans do worst to each other. does it make it right to kill humans as well?


    ---

    I guess that is kind of an unfair question... Would it make it right for another race or species to kill humans^^?


    or, would that be neither right or wrong..

    Not true...God made man in His image, not animals nor insects.

    The rest of creation was intended to serve us or for our use. And yes, we are commanded to be good stewards, not cruel.
