Everyone is Equal

September 19, 2009

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 🙂

      IHM! Whichever blogs am visiting today, u r first almost everywhere 😉 Whatz the secret IHM 😛

    Animals are not ours to use or ill treat. Humans use other humans who are less helpless than animals, now which religious text support that?

    kanagu: So true 😦 😦

    I have read of this and found in some way or the other, all religions consider man superior to all others, (man not humans) so women, dogs, donkeys, lower castes, all animals, but some specific animals are hated even more and one odd animals is supposed to be spared but isn’t… like the cow in India is treated left to wander on the roads all day and abandoned once old and ‘useless’.

    kanagu: What you have said is true IHM…. no respect for the living creatures on the Earth 😦 😦
    We always doing this ‘Use and throw’ 😦 😦

    Started watching tech toys on the TV 🙂

    I feel Jainism is the only religion that actually cares for animals.
    And Hinduism also does not condone cruelty to animals – traditionally nonveg was prohibited.
    But I mean no offence to any religion either, I feel there are kind people in every faith, and cruelty has no religion.

    kanagu: Perfectly said IHM.. 🙂
    cruelty has no religion and kind are there everywhere 🙂

    dont ever be so apologetic about what you write in your blog!

    kanagu: Sure Reema.. just thought its too serious..

  8. September 20, 2009 7:43 am

    First of all, does God exist? Religion is the creation of man and religious scriptures were written by man so it is but obvious that verses like the above appear in them…

    kanagu: yes it is Bones.. but thats how we lived for about 2000 to 3000 years…

    Most human beings do think they are superior to other living things – just ask around…Religion (in most cases) has nothing to do with this line of thinking…

    kanagu: thats true Bones… But thats what passed on from generation to genaration.. human are super ones 😦

  9. September 20, 2009 10:18 am

    Nice post, Kanagu.

    kanagu: Thanks Solilo 🙂

    We should also remember about food pyramid.

    kanagu: I didn’t seen human in that till now 🙂

    • September 25, 2009 1:12 pm

      yeahh very true,that is my point.After all our nature is amazingly balanced according to that

      kanagu: How balanced… tigers and lions very rare now… or for that thing Panda’s also…
      are they out of survival by nature or by force???

  10. September 20, 2009 11:33 am

    I second whatever you had written up there !! We, humans, are the worst of the lot !!!

    and I also second Reema! Write whatever you want to !!! 😀 😀 😀

    kanagu: Hmmm.. thank you bro 🙂
    and I won’t make apologies anymore 😛 😛

  11. September 20, 2009 11:42 am

    good point…
    actually humankind is the most helpless as kids…
    kids of animals are up on their feet within minutes, hours and fending for themselves…
    we are dependent on our parents for every need…
    and once we grow up? we tend to be the most destructive… for all the reasons u’ve mentioned above..

    kanagu: true Ash.. we are weak by nature.. all we have got is little ability to think..
    I am glad a human not using his entire brain 🙂


    as they say: “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing”… 😐

    kanagu: very true and right said 🙂

    • September 20, 2009 9:04 pm

      That’s correct – “A little knowledge is dangerous(or useless), and a lot of it is lethal”.

      Destination Infinity

      PS: I firmly believe in what has been said in the movie Matrix : “You humans are a plague and we (robots) are the cure” Just wait for the day robots take over the earth – life will be much better for our fellow-creatures. I hope it happens within our lifetime, I WANT TO SEE IT.

      kanagu: I don’t want to see that or to happen… a robot more dangerous than lil knowledgeable man 🙂

  12. September 20, 2009 7:11 pm

    I agree with everything you have written.. We humans are the most dangerous and inhumane beings on the planet..

    And you should write whatever you want to! It is your space and you don’t need to be apologetic about anything you write!

    Loved this post!

    kanagu: Thanks Smitha.. I won’t be apologetic anymore while writing here 🙂 🙂

  13. September 21, 2009 9:33 am

    good one man!!!!!! so true!!!!

    kanagu: thanks machi 🙂

  14. September 21, 2009 9:47 am

    🙂 WE, humans, have destroyed this earth… how can we be the best!!

    kanagu: Same question Sakhi 😦

  15. September 21, 2009 10:03 am

    i love u for this post kanagu! seriously! hugssssssssss

    kanagu: Thanks Crafty!!! hugsss!!!!!

    yes, i agreeeeeee, and i agree as hell, coz u have written everything that i keep saying time and again, and even believe.

    i am not sure if being a human is as “blessed” as they say it is. we are the worst of species by far. we cannabalise our own by our actions and behaviour and indifference.

    kanagu: So true crafty 😦

    we call ourselves a “society”, but a pack of crows know better how to live in a society than us!!!!

    SOOOOPER!!!!!!

    ((((((((((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))

    kanagu: {{{{{{{{Hugs}}}}}}}}

    and don’t u say sorry for what u write!!!!!!!!! 😛 😛 😛

    kanagu: Sure sure.. I won’t do that 😀

  16. September 21, 2009 11:48 am

    There’s no need to say sorry Kanagu! We luv ur serious posts as much as we luv the funny ones 🙂

    kanagu: Thanks Swaram 🙂

    Honest post, straight from the heart!

    Well, I don’t think man is superior in any way! May be he hs lot of mental development n stuff, but he hs been using it in an evil way too!

    kanagu: true true 😦

    Every being on earth plays its role in life and each one is equally important!

    kanagu: Rightly said Swaram 🙂 🙂

  17. September 21, 2009 12:03 pm

    Have you read a book called “God’s Debris’ by Scott Adams? One spectacular book.

    kanagu: yet to read it Meira 🙂

  18. September 21, 2009 12:24 pm

    ‘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.’

    This is so true. We think we are superior and fill up the earth with more humans and destroy all the other beings (animals and birds and other species) for our own good.

    Good post, Kanagu. You ARE serious here, indeed, but for a good reason.

    kanagu: True.. we are doing the things more than required for our survival.. which will lead us to downfall for sure 😦
    thank you

  19. September 21, 2009 2:28 pm

    Hi Kanu

    I heartily agrees with you. I do not think that animals are better than human beings but I certainly agree that human beings are not the supreme creatures however they have the capability to be one. Only thing that we human do not see beyond our own selfishness, greed and need. So much that we lie, cheat, embezzle and even kill others incl fellow human being.

    I too have read few verses in Bible and I believe it aimed to inspire us to be better if not annouce.

    Very well written and well portrayed post!

    kanagu: Thanks Ekta 🙂
    even though we are able to think.. every life has equal right to live on this earth… 🙂

  20. September 21, 2009 7:17 pm

    agree panren…yes…human race is the weakest of all!! we do all sorts of rubbish in the name of GOD? what more is there?

    kanagu: Welcome here boss!!!
    😦 😦

  21. September 21, 2009 9:03 pm

    will come back and comment more!

    hugs!!

    me back!! 😀 🙂

    kanagu: Cool!!!

    oye.. you didn’t came back to comment here… 🙂

  22. September 22, 2009 4:03 am

    Agree with you.. we, humans, are responsible for global warming, destroying the serene atmosphere, forests, making animals extinct.. we are in no way great..

    kanagu: Our ability made us to do disasters and we are responsible for that 😦

  23. September 22, 2009 10:42 am

    God made man in his image. Hence he is superior to all other beings and how!

    kanagu: how??? thats the question to be answered 🙂

  24. September 22, 2009 7:58 pm

    I totally agree with you on all counts. See what we have done to the gift called Earth!!!

    Anyways…

    BTW U don’t have to write funny posts always 🙂

    kanagu: Ok.. sure… 😀

  25. September 22, 2009 10:49 pm

    I don’t know If I said it already but …Hey good stuff…keep up the good work! 🙂 I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,)

    A definite great read..

    -Bill-Bartmann

    kanagu: Thanks bill for visiting my page.. keep visiting 🙂

  26. September 25, 2009 1:10 pm

    Forget about the Genesis and all, the fact is we are dominating all the living beings ,right 😀 .
    Human is one of the weakest animal , i don’t agree with that.He got the thinking capacity, that enables him to overcome all his weakness,correct na.Then after all it is natures rule.To prevent multiplication of plants, herbivores are there and then carnivores for controlling herbivores.Our nature is amazingly balanced.

    kanagu: but where are we… we are neither carnivores, nor herbivores… destroying everything in the name of we are thinking 🙂 🙂

    humans are the deadliest of all the creatures ever created i do agree with this to a degree
    between very thought provoking article

    kanagu: Thanks Anish 🙂

  27. September 29, 2009 10:36 pm

    According to me, humans are the deadliest of all the creatures.

    I completely agree with that! Humans are deadly dangerous, cancerous creatures 👿 that behave worse than the wildest beasts and they’ve outbred all complex life forms, except may be rats and mice! Shame on the human vermin! 😡

    All religions contain idiotic, superstitious beliefs and practices. Go through the “holy books” of any religion and you’ll find things that wouldn’t be considered as acceptable to any civilised society. The influence that all these decadent religions wield should be done away with!

    kanagu: actually we have misused the power which was given to us Raj.. thats the problem.. for me Earth just lost its identity..

  28. December 20, 2009 7:32 pm

    “tigers and lions very rare now… or for that thing Panda’s also…
    are they out of survival by nature or by force???” And also there are no humans in the Food Pyramid. I agree Kanagu.

    kanagu: Surely by force… not by nature for sure… they are far stronger than humans to survive…
