Humans! Why Do We Think We Are All That Matter?

Why is everything about human beings?

Why don't we ever consider that plants and other animals, natural resources, etc have some kind or role in the "ultimate plan" (lets pretend there was one). Why are religions (the Abrahamic ones) mostly concerned with humans? Why is the relationship between humans and the rest of our non-human environment hardly ever important?

If God is real, why does he/she seem to only be concerned about humans . . . does he/she value animal life? Is shooting an antelope for no good reason a sin?

Have you ever looked at a space telescope before? I have looked it on a few occasion and I was higly amazed by what I saw the more I look the better it gets. There are uncountable number of stars(suns) out there in space trillions or quadrillions of which have planets orbiting around their sun just like ours. Our star(sun) is just one out of the uncountable of stars that are out there and our star(sun) is not the only one that has planets orbiting around it trillions and quadrillions of other stars posses this attribute too. Please try and avail yourself the opportunity to observe one of the space telescopes if you have any around you and you will understand what I am talking about. I just dont believe that our planet is the only one that habours life(intelligent life) amongst the over 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000 of stars that are out there.

I have a question 4 u. . . I was readin this post again and it struck me as odd that u can almost affirm that there is life elsewhere in the universe, based on a gut feeling, but u (i think u do, not sure) consider people that affirm the existence of a deity based on a gut feelin (and in some cases more than that) as deluded.

Why do u believe so strongly that there is life elsewhere in the universe?

God created animals for man to enjoy eh? What about animals that also feed on other animals? If god created animals forman to enjoy then why is it that there are so many animals living in places that men can not live in? Places like caves and ocean floors?

haha.

I watch some stuff about marine life and it just seems they live in a different world from us. . People say stuff like "look at all the beauty around u and how can u say there is no God?". And then they stuff like "God loved man so much that he created all this for man too enjoy", and that is where it stops to make sense. . . why would God make animals that can suffer and feel pain, just for us to enjoy. . .does their suffering not mean anything to their creator. When we take knife and slice a chicken's neck or butcher a cow for a party. . .etc. does it mean nothing to God? If they were just there for human pleasure, why make them feel pain?

We do not treat non-human animals like we do other humans. Do you? What animal/human did u have for lunch today, or yesterday, or the day before?

People that hunt for leisure don't go around shooting humans. If u saw a puppy drowning in a lake would u try to save it? what about a child? What is it about human life that makes it more valuable than other animals?

Personally I believe that it is only a fool that will look at the universe as it is and think we are the only ones out here. If intelligent life is found else where in another part of the universe i wonder of they will say that jesus died for them too or if mohammed is also their last prophet also.

I have never heard any pastor explain human responsiblity towards the animal/plant world. Is that preached at ur church? What are we expected to do with them. . . eat them, kill them? do they have souls?

God is concerned about human so that we humans can be concerned about animal.

Interesting question.

The earth was cursed and animals became nasty and started to kill each other and feed on each other because of man's original sin according to the christian hypothesis. So when jesus redeemed the sin did the animals get saved as well? Logically it should be so no?
