God probably told us to have dominion over everything that creeps upon the earth because he knew we’d rather stay at home and eat potato chips. Why do we want to force others to live their lives for us, for whatever we fancy? Wouldn’t God be happier if we said, “Screw it. I’m leaving others alone. They can find their own happiness.” It’s rather presumptuous thinking we know what’s what, and then having to do what we’re told.
