Live in and respect nature

2017-02-22 06:03

D. BOULS’S letter in the Fever, 15 February makes very disturbing reading in this age of enlightenment.

That human beings can act with such gross cruelty towards other species of creation is to me unimaginable in the extreme

In my opinion, part of this fixation “with these pointless and barbaric practises” may stem from Judeo- Christian based concept of “God” granting humans the highest rung on the creationist ladder, with jurisdiction over the other species of creation, hence the gross exploitation of animals by man in violation of their own commandments.

On the other hand, Eastern systems of beliefs, especially Bhuddism, teaches respect, appreciation and gratitude for all forms of life, and “see” “God” in all.

Simply put, live in, and respect nature as it is.
