Something from another thread got me to thinking (I know...dangerous ) Genesis 1:30: '"And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground -- everything that has the breath of life [nephesh] in it -- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.' What kind of teeth were carnivorous animals created with? If God's creation was deemed "good"...and lions didn't eat gazelles...wouldn't lions have been originally created with teeth to eat vegetation? Teeth that carnivors have NOW are created for tearing flesh...but if God's perfect creation was for that to NOT be the case, I'm thinking all carnivors would have teeth like vegetarians, and the teeth that carnivors currently have are actually a flaw caused by the fall. I'm not talking about the ability for lions with their current teeth to chew and eat vegetation, but God's original plan for what are now carnivors. If they were created with different teeth for vegetation, how would the current carnivorous teeth come about? Could the 2 carnivorous animals selected by God for the ark been the first 2 of each carnivor species?
