Yahweh Gives, Man Takes Away (Known as Stealing)

I was sent a news story that actually appears in the Western AG Reporter (online – free subscription required). There is nothing special or unique about this story. It seems to be repeated every day. A man struggles to exercise the commands and rights given him by his Creator in order to make a living raising ranch animals.

I can only speak for what is obviously going on in America with a perverted love fest between misled and misguided citizens and animals in general.

We’ve all heard the cliche love is blind. Well, there is so much unnatural “love” for animals, much of the inhabitants of this country are so blinded they are failing to see Yahweh’s purpose in his creation of all animals and the “dominion” he gave his children over that resource.

Much of what the Scriptures talk about concerning unnatural affection for any animal is addressing having sex with an animal. We know that exists and has for centuries. This is not the perversion of which I am referring.

Some people also like to cherry-pick passages from Scripture that they believe instructs us not to “abuse” the animals. The King James Bible online groups together their idea of verses instructing us about animal cruelty. I will tell you now it is near impossible to understand the verses selected without having the full context, do yourself a favor and do your homework. In general, Yahweh tells us that we should take care of our beasts of burden, much in the same way that a man that makes his living driving a truck should take care of his truck. It is difficult for most people to separate their understanding of the differences between animal cruelty and responsibly taking care of the resource Yahweh gave us.

Let’s look at the Book of Genesis, Chapter 1 beginning at verse 24 where Moses describes Yahweh’s creation of the animals of the world and describes His intent and purposes. (Note: Contained in [brackets] you will find word, terms, and definitions from the original Hebrew in hopes that it might help you better understand.)

24 ¶ Moreover God said, Let the earth bring forth [yâtsâ’ – go (causatively bring) out, in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively, direct and proximate] the living thing [nephesh – a breathing creature, that is, animal or (abstractly) vitality; used very widely in a literal, accommodated or figurative sense] to his kind, cattle, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth according to his kind, and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth according to his kind, and the cattle according to his kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 Furthermore God said, Let us make man in our image according to our likeness, and let them rule [râdâh – to tread down, that is, subjugate; specifically to crumble off: – (come to, make to) have dominion, prevail against, reign, (bear, make to) rule, (-r, over), take.] the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over the beasts, and over all the earth, and over everything that creepeth and moveth on the earth.

27 Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female.

28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, Bring forth fruit, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, [ kâbash –to tread down; hence negatively to disregard; positively to conquer, subjugate, violate: – bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.] rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over every beast that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given unto you every herb bearing seed, which is upon all the earth, and every tree, wherein is the fruit of a tree bearing seed: that shall be to you for meat. [‘ôklâh – food: – consume, devour, eat, food, meat.]

30 Likewise to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the heaven, and to everything that moveth upon the earth, which hath life in itself, every green herb shall be for meat, and it was so. (emboldening added.)

There are key points to consider. Verse 26 refers to “dominion” or “rule” depending on which translated version you are using. That is why I refer back to the original written Word in Hebrew. The Hebrew word “râdâh” means to subjugate, to have dominion over, to rule, to take. The Hebrew language is different than our “English” language. One Hebrew word can have many meanings and uses. However, it appears this particular word has a narrowly focused meaning.

Yahweh commanded Adam to take control over all of these things and fill the earth but most importantly that all these things were provided for “meat” – meaning food to eat.

But I realized there are other issues at play here and therein lies many of the difficulties in sharing of those resources that our Creator gave us.

The first big obstacle might be that you don’t believe in Yahweh and that He created all things. Perhaps it’s Evolution or some other belief. That is fine with me. I have no intention of trying to force you to change your ways simply because you don’t believe the same as me. I only expect the same in return. You want to take all from me. I want only to take what is responsible to “fill the earth” and sustain, have dominion over, the resource to ensure its healthy existence. Isn’t that what Yahweh intended?

Which brings us to another very serious problem. Many people don’t care what millions of us believe and what we choose to practice. Their selfishness and greed cause them to demand – to demand such things as no more subjugating, ruling, taking, and having dominion over the beasts of the field, the fishes in the waters and fowl of the air for MEAT (food). They demand to deny me that gift of Yahweh and yet I demand nothing of them.

I have a deep appreciation of animals. They are Yahweh’s creation. But I also have a deep appreciation of what He told Adam was the purpose of those resources and it was not to let them become diseased and a useless object to only be looked up at one’s whim. To control, to rule over, to subjugate and have dominion of the beasts of the earth, fishes of the sea, and fowl of the air doesn’t mean hands off and let them do their own thing.

If it was intended by Yahweh that His Creation would “balance itself” he would have told us so and given different instructions.

He didn’t!

Perverse and Insane: Animals Thinking, Dreaming and Planning Vacations

Some guy named Carl Safina wrote another insane book about how animals are humans. It’s called “Beyond Words.”

In an email exchange, in which there is included an invitation to interview the author, the invitation is predicated by one persons’s comment that says:

“BEYOND WORDS is a must-read! Animals think, mourn, dream, make plans, and communicate complex messages in much the same way that we do! Readers who knew this already will rejoice! Others will learn the truth! And the more of us who capture the message, the sooner we will change the world!”

The invitation itself states that: “BEYOND WORDS offers powerful and illuminating insight into the unique personalities of animals through extraordinary stories of animal joy, grief, jealousy, anger and love. Ultimately a graceful examination of humanity’s place in the world, Safina calls on us to re-evaluate our relationship to the other species around us.”

Beyond words is a most exacting title as nobody in their right mind would believe any of this shit and would run the risk of being institutionalized, by doing so, if it were not for the fact that those running the nut factories are, themselves, nuttier than a fruitcake.

This is just further proof that the American society has gone off the deep end. Only the most insane and perverse minds would write such utter nonsense and believe any of it to be of any truth.

Here’s the entire invitation to interview the author:

BEYOND WORDS

What Animals Think & Feel

By Carl Safina – host of PBS’s “SAVING THE OCEAN”

Prize-winning author and MacArthur Fellow Carl Safina weaves decades of field observations with exciting new discoveries in brain science that delivers enlightening insight into animal cognition in his landmark new book BEYOND WORDS: What Animals Think and Feel (Henry Holt/A John Macrae Book; on sale: July 14, 2015).

In BEYOND WORDS, readers witness elephant families navigate the pervasive drought and incidents of poaching in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, see a free-living wolf pack sort out the aftermath of tragedy in Yellowstone National Park and finally plunge into an astonishingly peaceful society of killer whales living in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. These animals are treated as the individual characters they are, with distinct personalities and unique roles within social structures not unlike our own. Taking us into the animals’ lives and minds, Safina reports on the surprising similarities between our minds and theirs while thoughtfully tackling issues that affect us all, including habitat conservation and extinction.

BEYOND WORDS offers powerful and illuminating insight into the unique personalities of animals through extraordinary stories of animal joy, grief, jealousy, anger and love. Ultimately a graceful examination of humanity’s place in the world, Safina calls on us to re-evaluate our relationship to the other species around us.

Carl can speak about:

*How humans—with our friends, families, enemies, alliances, and career arcs—are similar to other animals that live in stable, structured groups, such as elephants, great apes, wolves, killer whales, and certain dolphins.
*How civilization has apparently dulled human senses and actually reduced our brain size, when many other animals are superhumanly alert, with ultra-fast response times and herculean physical abilities.
*How humans have inherited consciousness, thought, and feelings of fear, joy, grief, and emotional bonds from other animals, similar to the way we inherited our skeleton, organs, and nervous systems, and how it’s only a difference of degree.
*Why humans, dogs, and even crustaceans respond similarly to the same anti-anxiety and obsessive-compulsive drugs.
*What it means that humans and other animals share a remarkable capacity for grief.
*How human brains differ from those of whales and elephants, despite a relatively similar number of neurons in the brain’s cortex.
*Why humans and apes who view emotionally charged images respond with similar changes in brain and peripheral skin temperature.
*How orcas—whales born and built for a complex world of long-distance sound and long-distance travel—are affected by living in captivity.
*How the removal of Endangered Species Act protection affected the wolf population in Yellowstone National Park.
*Why humans’ strong tendency to act irrationally, to base decisions, beliefs, and actions on ideologies and things that cannot be seen, makes us different from other animals.
*How human language impacts the possibility of planetary catastrophe (and why animals that don’t communicate via human language may have the upper hand).
*Why species that have the most complex societies develop the most complex brains.

About the Author: Carl Safina is author of seven books, including SONG FOR THE BLUE OCEAN, which was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, EYE OF THE ALBATROSS, VOYAGE OF THE TURTLE, and THE VIEW FROM LAZY POINT. Safina is founding president of The Safina Center at Stony Brook University, where he also co-chairs the University’s Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science. A winner of the 2012 Orion Award and a MacArthur Prize, among others, his work has been featured in outlets such as The New York Times, National Geographic, CNN.com and The Huffington Post, and he hosts “SAVING THE OCEAN” on PBS.

De Blasio is Worse Than a Horses A$$ettes

*Editor’s Note* – Upon further investigation, I have discovered that the real reason that New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio, wants to ban horse-drawn carriages in the city has nothing to do with how horses are treated. No, it has been discovered that people are having a difficult time differentiating between de Blasio and a pile of horse excrement left behind by the horses.

horsepoopsaving

“You can now mark down PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, though my own personal PETA chapter stands for “People Eating Tasty Animals”) as part of the Democratic Party establishment whose demands must now be met. Back on January 1 of this year I noted that New York’s incoming Sandinista Mayor Bill DeBlasio was promising to shut down New York’s horse-drawn carriages—not because of horse dung or other remote public health threat (that would have made sense 100 years ago), but because the PETAmatons believe harnessing a horse violates human rights, or something.”<<<Read More>>>

Humane Society of the United States is All About Money

Humane Watch has a recent article that exposes the actions of the Humane Society of the United States(HSUS) in which their main goal is to raise money and not to care for animals. After all, they have large salaries and pensions to pay and as a result do very little for the care and concern for animals.

In Maine, where HSUS is mounting a multi-million dollar campaign against the citizens of that state to end bear hunting, those who support wildlife management that allows the managers to implement tools necessary for healthy populations of animals, have repeatedly stated that HSUS, an organization centered in Washington, D.C., is all about money and are using the referendum in Maine for the purpose of raising more money to pay more salaries and pensions.

In the Humane Watch article, it is about a lawsuit filed against HSUS because they fired the head of a horse sanctuary. The lawsuit claimed an illegal termination. During testimony, part of a deposition, the fired woman spoke openly of how she was told her job was to raise big money not run the facility or care for the animals, which evidently was being done by someone else.

If for no other reason than to know that HSUS uses your donations for personal use, i.e. salaries and pensions and nothing toward animal welfare, you should stop donating to such a fake and corrupt organization.

Feelings, Nothing More Than Feelings

Regardless of the intensity of education a person has, that amount of brainwashing and indoctrination cannot seemingly penetrate the intense “feelings” people have for animals. The difficulty here seems to be separating perceptions from reality. People want to “love” (worship?) animals so much, the first step in the justification of perverse animal worship is to equate an animal with the same ability to feel, sense, and reason as humans do. This is exemplified in a letter to the editor in the Bangor Daily News.

Although some dogs may love to hunt, I wonder how they’d feel if they knew about their chances of being ripped apart by a cornered bear. How would they feel if they knew they could wind up in a shelter once their usefulness is over at the end of hunting season?

The rest of the opinion piece is riddled with what-ifs about a bear’s feelings as is being projected onto the animals by the reader; a reader that lacks the ability to distinguish between reality and romantic fantasy.

Perhaps it is best described in a recent comment by Richard Fernandez when he says:

So the idea that reality can be trumped by perception is now the ultimate in modern sophistication, a necessary device to support the world of magic. In actuality this viewpoint is a reversion to the mentality of the cave-man, a return to the days when nature was an incomprehensible mystery to pacified by a witch-doctor.

Feelings, nothing more than feelings!

Kitty Cats Missing – Searching for Explanation

In a small mid-Maine town, at least six people’s cats have come up among the missing, according to the Bangor Daily News. The owners of the cats are searching for both cats and an explanation for a seemingly odd and mysterious vanishing. I don’t think it’s all that odd.

Among some of the theories being talked about in this article as to what or who to blame, are foxes and mountain lions, and yet no mention of any member of the canine species other than the fox.

Of course there could be some pervert living in or visiting the neighborhood who has some kind of cat fetish, dead or alive, or maybe even an acquired taste for the little felines. However, it is, more than likely, the result of some larger predator/killer that’s hungry and/or very opportunistic.

There are no fewer than two sure bets when it comes to wild critters: they will always be hungry and they will always have to compete with man, mostly for space but also for food. There’s not a lot that can be done about space, although we try. Yeah, some say that man is swallowing up these critters’ habitat and that encroachment is ruining the dietary plans of some of these animals. While true, to some degree, I wonder if anyone has ever conducted a study that shows how man’s encroachment on the forests, fields and deserts, has increased usable habitat and foraging opportunities for wild animals, including birds? I’ll bet there’s a tradeoff, especially when you consider there are many more species of wild animals in this country than at any other time in recorded history.

All wild animals compete for habitat and food, whether with their own kind or another wild animal. In its most basic form, rational thinking will tell us that if there’s a food shortage, competition increases. On the same token, if the population of certain species increases, so does the competition for food. God forbid both happen at the same time.

Wild animals are, for the most part, opportunistic hunters/foragers. Let’s face it, our own human instinct is to go where we can get something we like to eat in the easiest possible manner available to us. Wild animals are no different.

If, as humans, we provide protection and food for wild animals, either intentionally or not, we will have visitors, some of which we might wish we didn’t have, as may be the explanation for missing cats.

Generally speaking, if wild critters have all the room they need and all the food to eat within that space, we as busy humans seldom, if ever, see them. It’s when circumstances change that six people will lose their cats, all in short period of time.

It sounds from reading the article that most of these kidnapped cat owners let their pets outside and unattended. This has probably been the norm and none have ever had much cause to think otherwise. If the cats became dinner fare for some predator/varmint, chances are something in the region changed that forced the wild critters to go seeking prey elsewhere.

We, as humans, can’t do much about changing natural circumstances that alter the behavior of wild animals, but we can do something about being responsible for managing specie populations to reduce these kinds of conflicts but more importantly to provide for healthy wildlife.

There will always be anomalies when dealing with the natural world, and this one occurrence may be just that. When it becomes a common event, chances are habitat is dwindling but more than likely populations are increasing. This happens mostly due to over-protection of a species. Over-protection is irresponsible behavior and does little good for the animal species and as a result, we see increases in the negative kinds of human/wildlife encounters. We also will usually see animal disease and starvation.

One example of what Maine citizens can do is not get caught up in the emotional rhetoric being provided by the Humane Society of the United States and the Wildlife Alliance of Maine, who want to effectively ban all methods necessary to properly and responsibly manage the black bear population.

As things stand at present, Maine has a very large and growing population of black bears. The ONLY humane methods of keeping those populations in check is through hunting and trapping. If those are removed, negative encounters between bears and humans will increase. Some of those encounters are sure to be tragic and, of course, unnecessary.

I’m not sure that kitty cats are at the top of the list of dietary delights for Ursus Americanus but taken to hunger due to a loss of food and/or population growth and competition, a bear will eat most anything it can get its paws onto……including humans.

Maine citizens should be thanking hunters and trappers for the healthy wildlife we all enjoy. In combination with intelligent wildlife management science, and the implementation of the North American Model of Wildlife Management, an historically proven method of responsible wildlife management, all Maine citizens get to enjoy the results.

Nobody wants to see our own and/or our neighbors pets disappearing. One way to help ensure this doesn’t happen is to make sure that the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife never have their hands tied up to a point where it prevents them from doing the best jobs they can in caring for our wild animals. Don’t let politics and private agendas dictate scientific wildlife management.

Like Wild Animals Being Drawn to Human Activity is a New Thing

More and more reports come out every day of how wild animals are showing up on people’s doorstep, literally and figuratively, and it is being reported like it was something new that needs some wise and brilliant scientist to tell them why.

What we find mostly in the media, are the inaccurate lies of the animal protection perverts, because for some anti human response, they always want to blame the actions and reactions of animals, that from their own preconceived nonsense think are abnormal, on humans; some to the extent of wishing humans to be killed in order to protect the animals.

The Christian Science Monitor reports that now even larger wild mammals are taking up residence in and among the masses of people.

New research suggests mountain lions and bears may be following the urban pioneering of raccoons, foxes and, most notably, coyotes as they slowly encroach on major US metro areas from New Jersey to California. In the case of coyotes, they don’t even mind the density, with some coyote packs now confining themselves to territories of a third of a square mile.

“The coyote is the test case for other animals,” Ohio State University biologist Stan Gehrt told EcoSummit 2012 conference on Friday in Columbus, Ohio. “We’re finding that these animals are much more flexible than we gave them credit for and they’re adjusting to our cities. That’s going to put the burden back on us: Are we going to be able to adjust to them living with us or are we not going to be able to coexist?”

Why is it so amazing to these people that wild animals adapt to their surroundings? I am witness to this shallow programmed thinking everyday. The whitetail deer is only one example where as conditions change for the deer, biologist chalk them up as soon to die because habitat has changed or where to locate their next meal. Shouldn’t we give these creatures a bit more credit?

I can attest to the statement that coyote packs “confining themselves to…a third of a square mile”. I’ve related to readers this story often of how I live a few hundred yards from the city center of about 75,000 people and within a radius of 50 miles, well over one million people. Next door is a yet to be developed city park of perhaps 30 acres, the majority of which is open space and yet there lives a pack of coyotes.

What brings these animals to this spot? Simple really. Animals aren’t dumb. They go where the meals are cheap and easy to come by. In this little oasis there are tons of wildlife, along with hoards of domestic cats and dogs…..mostly cats as people let their cats roam freely, contrary to laws.

I live in an enclosed neighborhood where on any evening, night and early morning, rabbits can be found in abundance. I wonder what draws those coyotes here? And people ask, “The way rabbits procreate, why aren’t we overrun by them?”

Let’s face it. Those evil humans the radical environmentalists so despise, are a magnet, a drawing card for wildlife. History, for those willing to rediscover it or perhaps learn for the first time, tells us what influence man has had on the perpetuity of wildlife. When the West was wild and unsettled, some want to believe it was teeming with wildlife. There were pockets but generally speaking it was sparse – just read the journals of Lewis and Clark and the many explorers and trappers that kept journals and diaries. Good thing there were horses and dogs around to eat, otherwise they might have starved to death. The natives were always on the verge of starvation in some cases.

With the increased settlement of man, irrigating crops, planting great wildlife food (unintentionally) wildlife grew and prospered. It was a Club Med for wildlife. Evidently we have forgotten or never knew or more accurately were deliberately made not to know such things.

For those mammals that are prey species to the larger predators, they have adapted to the fact that it’s not quite as dangerous living in the Jones’ back yard and feeding off their beautiful shrubbery as it is living in constant fear of being eaten to death by over protected, chasing predators.

The author above asks, “Are we going to be able to adjust to them living with us or are we not going to be able to coexist?” Look once again at history. People will tolerate “coexisting” with wild animals but only to an extent. When you consider what wolves did to humans, people reached a point where they said, no more. They did quite a number on them to a point most people thought that in the U.S. they were all gone. Not quite.

I don’t think today, anyone would stand to take to the extreme people did years ago to rid the countryside of wolves or any other predator or wildlife, until they begin eating your kids, then I can’t predict what will happen.

I do know what I’d do.

*Update* Perhaps this article will shed a bit more light on how much people will not tolerate wild animals.
