Personally, I think if the lord is really going to micromanage life on earth, per the post below, he’d spend more time sending orders and threats to bacteria. The total weight of all the bacteria on the earth is a 1,000 times more than all the animals. And people are only a little wedge of the animal kingdom.
Give us a break. If you have to go after animals, then rapture the beetles on May 21. That would be impressive, given their multitudes. But it makes even more sense to send the prokaryotes to eternal hell or paradise. Now that’s some serious end-of-the-world action.
