I believe before The Fall animals did not kill each other and we lived in harmony.

If it's wrong to kill animals, why are they made out of such delicious meat?

So what did they eat then? What did the carnivore animals eat?

Something must die so something can live. First Rule. Can't get away from it. You don't eat, you die. Applies to animals too. Humans on the other hand kill for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with why animals do it. It would appear that animals(other than humans) are actually closer to God because they rarely kill except for food. Humans slaughter themselves in unprecedented numbers, create bombs that would kill us all, create biological weapons that would do the same, the list goes on. So maybe animals have a better concept of God, judged be their actions, compared to us? What on Earth makes you think that animals have no concept of God? I think all we have is a concept of ourselves and put that off on God.

Animals do not have the intelligence of human so they can not fully understand the abstract concept of "God". God is love and there are loving animals but why do the animals have moments of being unloving if they are so connected with God and don't have complex thinking for ego?
Maybe God is Joy since all beings are seeking that...
What do you think about all of this?

Thats why humans do not eat other humans.
The emotion of "love", not the concept of God is what seperates Man from animal.
Yet, Man kills Man in the name of God.
