I appreciate religion took us through the dark ancient times when we didn't know better so instead people wasting time wonder about various things it was attributed to God and the bullies and psychos were told that they would be punished eternally if they mistreated people but know we know much more we have governments, constitution. We now need to move on.... As the Bible said,.in corinthians "11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. "
Human beings run , own , dominate this planet. That will never change.
Animals are lesser beings, just as we are lesser beings in the eyes of the Heavenly Hosts.
When you die, you go back to the ground. But the spirit returns to The Owner.
