Animals in Religion
  • In the Bible, God grants human beings dominion
    over the earth and all of the creatures who
    inhabit the earth
  • What is meant by dominion?

For that which befalleth the sons of men
befalleth beasts as the one dieth, so dieth the
other yea, they all have one breath from God
so that man hath no preeminence above a beast.
Ecclesiastes 319
