The World Would Be Boring If We Were All the Same, Right?

I knew it was just a matter of time for someone to jump all over this eating insect stuff to think it was unethical. Letter: Eating animals, including insects, isn’t ethical.

The part that gets me is when people use any means to justify the end like I’m going to do right now!

Now just strictly taking what the Bible says:

King James Bible – Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

When God gave humanity dominion over the animals, it was in order to care for, tend to, and use those animals to their fullest potential in a just manner. At the time that God gave mankind dominion over the animals, humans did not eat meat (Genesis 1:29). Eating meat did not begin until after the Flood (Genesis 9:1-3), and it was at that time that animals started to fear humans. However, although God changed the way we interact with animals, in that they are now “meat,” we still bear a responsibility to care for or treat animals humanely. Human “rule” over animals does not mean we have the right to mistreat or misuse those animals.

There are about 7 billion people on the planet and sooner or later there isn’t going to be enough food. Now I will tell you if I didn’t have access to the type of food I’ve always had – I would eat whatever I could get my hands on, period. Now I’m fine with you if you what to be a vegetarian but frankly I’m never going to be and nothing, nothing you say will ever change that fact.
