So God created obligate carnivores, equipped them as apex predators, and made them eat straw -- a truly divine design.
And so that perfect state of affairs rolled along until Eve, that stupid slut, bit the apple. [Editor's note: So did Adam, but she corrupted him into it, which is why God is male and men must stay in charge.]
Some heretics say Adam learned of Good when he gazed into her loving eyes and understood that love wasn't just the way things are, without rhyme and reason -- it was something they had created.
And the heretics claim the wailing couple learned of Evil when their father flew into a rage and visited death and misery upon them and their descendants forever, a sort of looping Kronus, endlessly chewing over the ills he inflicts on his children. [Editor's note: Bad kids! Bet they won't do that again. Spare the slaughter of the innocents and spoil the child, I say!]
Which brings us back to the lion. Equipped with the tool set for meat, he choked down straw; equipped with minds that can see through poppycock and moral insanity, we are to choke it down.
I need to know nothing.
