Genesis 1:24-25

" Then God said, "Let the earth be filled with animals, each producing more of its own kind. Let there be tame animals and small crawling animals and wild animals, and let each produce more of its own kind." and it happened.
So God made the wild animals, the tame animals, and all the small crawling animals to produce more of their own kind. God saw that this was good."

A variety of animals were created and in order with the way that science says that they evolved. first the water animals, then the birds, and then just about everything else. The tame animals makes me think of things such as sheep and cows and even I suppose dogs, animals which may not have always been tame but which certainly were tameable, the ones which humans would be able to put to their own uses. The small crawling animals makes me think of things such as bugs and insects, snails, spiders and snakes, everything which thinking of makes your skin crawl. The wild animals makes me think of ferocious beasts; lions and tigers, wolves, reptiles and even dinosaurs.

God obviously had foresight, he obviously foresaw the damage our species would do and tried to prevent it... at least to some extent.

What does the description of the animals in this passage make you think of?
