God's Creatures Ministry
Yes, most did, but in no case does that mean the discoveries would
not have occurred without animals. It only means that the market for lab
animals was thriving and employing them was easy. In addition, from the
second half of the nineteenth century forward, experimentation on
animals became part of all medical curricula. So researchers were
obliged to perform animal experiments to get their degrees. However, it
is hardly accurate to deduce that those experiments bore directly on the
Nobel-winning results. In the instances wherein animals were used for
the Nobel-winning results, they were not necessary. Though animal tissue
research was the convention, human tissue was available and more viable,
as many Nobel Prize winners have since remarked. See Science page for

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
