If a woman is found to not be a virgin on her wedding night, she is to be stoned to death.

Glad they don't do that anymore. No women would survive their wedding night.

Hawks are a natural predator and part of the cycle of life. Cats are transplanted and disrupt the natural order.

All cats not kept indoors needs to be disposed of.

Insects would eat all food crops. Many species of seed plants would not spread.

The mosquitos alone would end civilization. Are you one of those "no bees, no stings" intelectual types aren't you?

Take the case of your mother. If she had been had by an introduced species instead of the burro she usually uses in her act. You might have been born with a tail?
