We brought up in class today the fact that animals were technically never "expelled" from Paradise so why should they die like humans do. This idea really stuck with me and made me question so many theories and concepts. Adam and Eve were expelled from Paradise and were therefore exposed to suffering and death. Animals, though, were never directly involved in their wrongdoings. But note the fact that Charles Darwin explains in "The Descent of Man" that humans and apes share a common ancestor. I suppose this would mean, assuming one believes in the theory of evolution, that animals were, in some way, expelled from Paradise, too, and that is why they do die. I know Darwin's theory came much later than the creation of man, but applying it to this notion kind of justifies why animals experience death and sickness.
