Vegan Values
Comments by Maynard S. Clark - 31 Jan 2003

IF you read the text and think about the implications of a literal (or even mythic-contextual "neo-orthodox" view - post-critical it's "true" in a real but different way than surface readers MIGHT at first suppose) reading of the text, it says that God created sentient life, with humans emerging later in that process, and that the intent (or design) was for there to be vegetarian (even vegan) human life. In fact, it reads that the intention was for there to be NO carnivorism in the perfect world. That didn't last, but the clear TEACHING is that God's wish for "awareness bodily" was vegetarian awareness, ambulation, and behavior - not what we have today.
