Man has dominion over animals

Editor;

Recently, one of the comments on your web site questioned my knowledge of the Bible, doubting that man has dominion over animals as quoted in the Bible. So, here are the verses: Genesis 1:26 and 9:1-2. In the first verse God gives man dominion over all things on the Earth; and in the second submission, God tells Noah basically the same thing.

Now, with this ‘dominion’ I can assume that it does include responsibility. Going out of your way to avoid a dangerous animal with a history of attacking humans is not acceptable. A prudent person would do something about it for his fellow man.

Meanwhile, my Thai wife told me not to give money to beggars, bad, but give them food or water=good (they will look at you funny). Any farang living here can afford to put some change in the dog / or orphan boxes or give a donation to a clean up group; no fanfare expected.

    Aloha

    Believing in the possibility of Buddha, God and or the Coconut Tree, I don't necessarily read or carve into stone the first, second or any of the rewritings of the Bible or any other book for that matter.
    I listen to Mother Earth, my heart and react accordingly I find some people should not be around animals of any-kind, I also believe some animals should be put down.
    Not all, because of a few bad or dangerous ones, I also believe avoiding areas, where new born just happened, unless the pack knows you and that's anywhere!
    There are many humans that should have their freedom removed but lets please not put all of their neighbors in jail or give them the death sentence.
    Most of the stray dogs here have learned how to be around humans, reacting well, wish I could say that about most humans around humans or dogs
    Man has dominion over animals
