Everyone is Equal
Note: Whatever I have written below are my thoughts and my understandings on this verse and the things I have heard from my friends. Please clarify if I am wrong.
I have never ever written something about religion in my blog but this time the need arises. When I am talking with some of the friends who follow Christianity used to say that the human race is superior to all the other living beings and the same was mentioned in Bible. I couldn’t believe that. How a god whom we believe that responsible for this whole universe can be partial. But when I have seen this verse in Bones post from the Bible I am shocked.
“Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” – Genesis 1 King James Bible
I will tell you, Human is one of the weakest animal surviving on this Earth. If at all god wanted them to rule the world why God didn’t created him/her as strong as Elephant, made his/her legs as strong as leopard so that he/she to run as fast as like it or give the wings and fins to fly and swim by anytime. God didn’t do anything like that.
He has given the special capability of thinking to the humans and to analyze the things just like he has given the ability to swim for fishes, flying to fishes and so on. I never heard anything like this being said or done by god’s son Jesus Christ. He loved every living being on this planet more than that he loved this Earth.
According to me, humans are the deadliest of all the creatures ever created by god. No other creature on this earth spoiled this planet this much with the ability given to it. We ourselves termed us Homo sapiens and defined us as ‘Wise man’ or ‘Knowing man’ (here too you could see the men chauvinism).
- No animal killed other one for joy. We have done that.
- No animal killed other one on the basis of its race and made a decision to extinct it from world. We have done that.
- No animal enjoys torturing other animal… we tortured animals and fellow humans.
I can say umpteen things like this…
The ability to think is given to us for greater good and we have done worse things than good ones over all the years we survived on this Earth.
We have no reason to say ourselves a dominant one over other species… Like the others creatures we are also one living being born on this Earth and we have the rights what an insect or an animal have on this Earth.
PS: From the above post don’t consider that I am against all the things said in Bible. I respect Bible and all the other religious books. And also I believe the religions are created to show a path in which we can live peacefully.
PPS: I have read a book ‘Manithanukkul oru Mirugam’ (Animal within human) this week and I have something to share with you all from that book. I will do by next week.
Sorry for being serious in this post. Hope to come up with something funny soon 🙂
