Quote of the Week

In a loquacious meandering opinionated piece in the NY Times, Professor McMahan suggests that perhaps “we could arrange the gradual extinction of carnivorous species, replacing them with new herbivorous ones.”

“Theologians have had enough trouble explaining to their human flocks why a loving god permits them to suffer; but their labors will not be over even if they are finally able to justify the ways of God to man. For God must answer to animals as well. If I had been in a position to design and create a world, I would have tried to arrange for all conscious individuals to be able to survive without tormenting and killing other conscious individuals. ” (Professor Jeff McMahan)

It appears that Professor McMahan thinks God should bear the “Imago Homo”.
