sadly, they arent. just a man thing i guess. but as far as death of any kind, that was never the plan. unfortunately, things dont always go according to plan.


How, pray tell, would any ecosystem function, if there was no death?

You're saying that God's original plan, was to have an earth, with all life, with no way of sustaining itself?

Sounds like a pretty crappy plan!

God's plan was for no death. man brought death upon himself by going against God and eating the forbidden fruit.

Well, now you're changing what you said before. Now, it seems you're saying that "man brought death upon himself". That's quite different than no animal nor plant death, whatsoever.

no i am not changing what i said. God's plan was for no death. man brought death into the world (upon himself) by disobeying God. i didnt change anything, you just did not understand what i meant
some things are better left unsaid, which i generally realize after i have said them

Are you talking about human death, or death to all living things? Because, when you say something such as, "man brought death into the world (upon himself)", anyone who understands basic English, would think you are saying man brought death to himself, not necessarily to all living things.

Never mind actually. I really don't have the time to get into an argument about what you meant, vs what you actually said.

9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Seeing how u're a gap theorist, how do u reconcile that to the death of the original creation?
