I agree, in a sense that all life is precious. However, I don’t fully agree with Bananaman’s words or reasoning here.
So, Ray, have you made peace with the fact that you offended god and his genius for all the mites, bacteria, blades of grass, houseflies, etc. that you have killed over your lifetime? What about the lives taken by natural (godlike) disasters? What about lives that stustain itself at the cost of other lives?
My point is that death is a part of life and nature; and that loss of life is not inherently sinful.
