The natural world is not the Western Civilized world. I am talking about the Praying Mantis who turns and eats the head of her lover even while he is mounting her. There’s the leopard who bites into the jugular of a baby antelope in her nest and puts the mother to flight. Western Civilization, which of all the civilizations has been the most influenced by the Judeo-Christian values promulgated by Christ’s followers, looks somewhat askance at these primitive happenings, allowing for their natural origins. You may still see stonings in Pakistan, but then, that’s another civilization.
