It is too often said that without god we humans would behave like wild animals. That we will fornicate in the street, rape, murder and live life without morals.
Animals behave more ‘godly’ than any human, even the most pius. Think about it.
The very religious suppress male sexuality and oppress female sexuality. The Bible clearly dictates, many times that sexual intercourse and ‘wooing’ is for one reason and one reason only; to procreate and create more humans. God clearly dictates that to fornicate for pleasure is a sin and to prevent pregnancy or to abort pregnancy and even to masturbate and ‘waste’ your sperm are all mortal sins punishable by death or eternal damnation. Rape is wrong, war is wrong, murder is wrong and adultery is wrong. For females to flaunt, enhance or show their beauty is a sin. To abandon, neglect or to molest and abuse your children is a sin. To destroy the earth by the crimes of arson, pollution, poison air, radiation, nuclear or chemical weapons and by logging or fishing and polluting our oceans are sins. These are all behaviors of human beings. Animals only have sex to procreate and to assure the survival of their species, animals don’t practice birth control or abortion nor do they masturbate. They don’t rape; in fact the largest percentage of species females are the ones that choose their mates, or not choose any with no rape. Those animals that mate for life to not ‘cheat’. In the animal kingdom it is the female who plain and unassuming. This is a way of protecting her from being seen so she may protect her offspring by hiding; the males are the brightly colored, larger in stature and it is the males who fight for the right to mate or display elaborate mating dances and rituals to win the females permission. Animals don’t kill or use food and natural resources beyond what the need to survive. They don’t use or do anything out of greed or materialism. Animals don’t murder out of hatred nor do they commit suicide because they are depressed. It would seem to me that if we behaved more like animals this world would be a better place and we would be as godly as god demands we be.
