    As I said, it's all interrelated, so every resource is important to you whether you use it directly or not.

    It's not a resource for you if it's not useful to you.

    Again... everything is interrelated... so everything is "useful" to you. If you thoughtlessly wipe out some species because you don't think it's "useful", you can't predict all of the consequences.

    Like Noah's inner voice did to all the species of animal and plant on earth? What a huge waste of resources. The exploitable ones ofcourse.

    Noah didn't destroy any species. He preserved them.

    His God did according to the story. Worship this kind of destructive God and maybe he'll save you. That's the lesson. What a shitty metaphor.

    No it isn't. The lesson is that you gotta build your own ark to save yourself from God.

    Yes it is. It's about obeying and groveling before God and so sparing yourself from natural disaster. And then to keep obeying this God even though he destroys the whole planet in a tiff.

    Then why did Noah have to build his own ark?

    And yet he went to the trouble of poofing all that water in and then out. No, your explanation doesn't fit the story.

    He simply relaxed the constraints of the deep and the water-filled firmament. No poofing involved at all.

    There was no water-filled firmament - physically impossible. Your story doesn't hold water.

    Read your Bible. It's all in Genesis.

    You're embellishing. Miracle required.

    Nope. It's in the Bible. Read the book before trying to defend its fables.

    The miracle is in the Bible. Only creationists try to pretend it's all scientific.

    While others pretend it is all metaphorical and non literal. Except for the miracles ofcourse.

    Indeed, it is a huge resource - without scavengers and decomposers, waste and dead bodies would quickly build up.
    Thank you, though, for openly broadcasting your ignorance when it comes to the importance of reclamation species...

    Here, go educate yourself:
