Your argument seems to assume that all living things have equal value in God`s sight. What would your life be like if you tried to live according to this principle?

You could not eat any plants or animals, well maybe you could eat road kill and plants that had died of natural causes. You might drink milk, but commercial dairy production seems exploitive if cows and goats have equal value to your own wife or children.

You would have to be very carefull even walking because that ant or bug you stepped on has equal value with your own mother, and you wouldn`t want to squish her life out. Driving a car or building a house seems out of the question because of the "harm" to plants and animals. Gasoline for fuel and production of cars and computers must be about equal morally with murdering a room full of humans.

I wonder if you live in a in the wilderness living a "natural" life where you are as concerned about mosquitos and spiders as you are of family and friends.
