If God is real then yes he made some for our benefits and other animals for theirs. But it doesn't mean we can do what ever the hell we like with them though.

*Shrugs* I don't know I don't beleive in the Christian God anyway. Some people beleive in a combination of God and following on from that evolution which would explain why.. I'm not so sure though!!

God made the animals for us to study and also to eat at some point after we fell into sin. Don't any of you like chicken or steak? Thank God for meat, cause vegetables and fruits would have us running to the restroom from all the fiber.

Hello

Tibett..

There are those that don't want you to kill animals too!!

The Petaphiles of this world..

Do you know that in 2005 ( I think) there was 56,000 car/deer collisions in Michigan alone ??

That's a Whole lot of deer...

Truck drivers in these parts put custom push bars on the front of their trucks so when they smoke a deer at 65 they don't crush the front of their truck.

I know of a truck driver who hit 3 deer in 5 weeks..
His insurance company had a fit and forced him to install a custom made Steel push bumber that covers the entire front of his truck..
Looks like something straight out of Mad Max...

So just think what it would be like if we didn't hunt the deer..

sorry for the Rant..

I don't have a problem with hunting deer or hunting in general, it is natural and keeps control of a population. It's the ones that are raised for slaughter. If you've ever visited a chicken slaughter house you'll know that some of the things are truly terrible.

In Oregon, roadkill deer and elk is fed to the prison pop. Here in the corrupt state of ct roadkill is left to rot on the side of the road.

All righty, God made animals for companionship, protection, food, and assistance (with agriculture, etc.)
Atheist- Oh geez. Are you another one of those crazies that believe in that ridiculous big bang theory? You've gotta be kidding me.
I'll pray for you.

I think your confused.
We, are animals also. We are part of the primate family.

We exist because animals exist.

Just as we have variations in the human species.. So do the animals of this planet.. due to gene mutation and new species beeing bread from older ones. Sometimes splitting into 2 destinct species from one common one.

This step repeating its self over billions of years is why we have so many different species of life today.

it all started with one single celled orginisim.

So in answer to your question, if animals were not created.. we would not exist.

Ha ha ha ha oh my God. I am mentally ill by that idea of our friend. I couldn't imagine how smart is a monkey typing in front of its' computer. The idea seems so monkey-like. Perhaps it would be very profitable to bring that monkey to perform in a Royal London Circus.

Wayne dont be a troll.
Im sure youve herd about humans and other primates both having one common ansestor.

to say that, at one time a single primate species existed that over generations developed into 2 different species one line developed into one set of primate species the other line developed into us.

The similarities between us and many other primates are undeniable.

For you to imply that we dont share any relation to any other animal on this planet is rediculous.
So you must think our ansestors are alien then?
Because theres NO species in this planet that does not have any relation to another on some genetic level.

Yes wayne, essentually.. you are a hairless ape.
dont be so arrogant.

Actually, some primates are very smart for their genetic makeup. Theres afew chimps that have been taught to talk to us through sign language.

its really not that hard to get ones head around if its not clouded by religious beliefs.
