Why did God design life in such a way that to survive you must kill another life form?
Hi Highland Terrier,
God designed all of them given equal opportunity and given different way to live. It may his calculation to keep the balance of birth and death ratio. But unfortunately it become the over powering of the healthy one on the unhealthy one. Kill another one in the name of nation, language, color, money, wealth, sex etc. Even in the name of God, one killing another. I wander if one fine morning God himself appeared and question all this, what will happen!. Some time we will try to kill God
I cannot agree that all were given equal opportunity, too many animal are extinct or near extinction to make this believeable. As for man (made in Gods imagine)killing so freely is alarming.
Death brings new life. Our religion in Christianity is based upon death bringing new life in following Christ. The life cycle is dependent upon death so that a rebirth and continuation of all life may be sustained. Can you imagine what life might be like on this planet, if there was no death and all species continued to die only in a way that requires living to the end of their life cycle, be it minutes, hours, years? Life would be so abundant and over crowded in this world, everything would be consumed and waters gone, so that there would be nothing to sustain life and provide for new life. Life was meant to be as a big revolving wheel, even in the birth of the cosmos, itself, with stars being born and later exploding into fragments that create planets, moons and galaxies. There has to be death, in order to promote new life. It is a constant and need that the Creator of all understands, and we should try to understand. Answers are often beyond our minds grasp and all we can do is continue to think, ponder upon, and use imaginations at times, in trying to find reasonable solutions.
But God is said to have made the world and all in it, so why did he not design it better. Why did he make a system like that?
What is perfection to you and can the creatures in his world continue to survive in it as you see it. Perhaps a perfect picture of the universe would be stars with planets spinning about them and never expanding with no shooting meteors, no changes.
The definition of Death is probably the biggest misconception known to man...
He's a god of love. He didn't want us to have to do without rack of lamb.
1. God designed life as perfect as it could be.
2. Giving us freewill allows us to do whatever we want.
3. With life comes death, so at some point you will be killed by something, and there is always a way to link it, indirectly or not, to some other life form.
This is all through a veil of theism that the question assumes, mind you.
To 1. How can we know?
To 2. I have always considered free will a cop out excuse for Gods inaction.
To 3. The question remains, why this system. I would not create life like this, unless I had no choice.
God has created life in a manner which is most appropriate. Life needs death to move on. Without death, life has no value. Its not that one needs to kill another human to live on. But in the process if we see, we kill many small animals for our food and even plant life to survive. So its a cycle of life to go through death to origin new lives ahead.
Good question, Highland terrier.
Life as we know and understand it needs death. But does God not know more than us.
I was just thinking about this today ..when the lion run after the deer for food they deer is not going to lay itself in front of lion to let lion feats on it but runs for its dear life just to live for an another day..and God designed it in such a way whether you like it or not you will taken and that too in pain...but i always keep this way all the good things created by God and all the flaws are devils intervention..so we don't have to blame God for everything.
This is one of my problems; if God is the creator why did he create Satan and evil.
I find it all very confusing
I do not think that God creates our lives to be such.
It is through transformation of different stages of our lives we get to learn more about survival. It does not necessary means that we need to kill in order to survive. There are many ways we can do without killing.
It is all depend on yourself and what you think that you want to do in order to be satisfied. One of the commandment is Thou shall not kill.
Isn't god meant to be flawed, as we were created in his image, with, you know, flaws. As a matter of fact, life would be very boring if everything was perfect. We have been conditioned to fear sadness. It's all an experience and I would not change one thing that has happened to me, either good or bad.
If you watch movies, play video games, play board games or enjoy any kind of anything really, you know that without enemies, challenges, negatives and hills, life would be a steaming pile of cabbage.
For example. I am a civil servant. I'm Irish too. I work my A off to try to disprove the stereotype, but you still hate me? Right? I also put up with my lazy coworkers all day and pull their weight and then I meet someone like you who spits at me for serving the public. Would I change you? No, I wouldn't. Because we all have flaws and the experience I obtain from people treating me that way, it drives me on and makes me work even harder, thus making my work and my life even more worthwhile.
Why did God design life in such a way that to survive you must kill another life form? Because, we are all in this game for something, and it's a huge cycle. We are born, and we must die. If we aren't feeding a dinosaur, we are feeding the soil. Then plants are born and die.
P.S Love the dog.
