Does God test animals same as humans?
The Chicago Tribune contained, Humans Are Destroying Animals’ Ancestral Knowledge, to report an Ed Jong Conservationist finding when humans restrict animal migration corridors, we erase their memory and their population declines.
“The corridor exists in the minds of these animals. If you sever it (their pathway) with a highway and then reserve it with an overpass, the animals wouldn’t immediately start using it again, because they wouldn’t automatically have the memory of it. They’d need to relearn.”
The Purpose of This Post….
….is to compare the similarity of this finding with the wisdom of an ancient Ecclesiastes comparison of humans and animals.
You decide if the reasoning comparison is similar, and/or a contributing factor to the decline of religion in the USA.
King Solomon, Ecclesiastes 3
18 I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. 19 Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath[c]; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?”
What’s My Point?
In previous posts, I explained my opinions that average Americans cannot afford to send their children to private religious schools because the tax burden maintaining public schooling has become so expensive that average families cannot afford to pay both public school cost and private religious school costs.
The comparison restricting animals’ pathways will cause the loss of learned memory of the pathways to the animals reminded me of our current loss of religious learning taking place in the USA.
In other words, while we are concerned about animal loss of memory by human restrictions we do not seem as concerned about human’s loss of memory of religion because of economic restrictions of American family’s loss of ability to pay for private schools to teach their children religion because they have high taxation to pay for public schools and cannot pay for both.
Three thousand years ago, wise King Solomon had thoughts to wonder if God tests the fates of both human and animals. We know for certain that conservation has protected many animal species from extinction. We also know from human history that there have been dark age periods of humans such as wars, diseases, and learning that contributed to the extinction of innumerous humans.
Yet, somehow new generations of humans continue to come into view, in a similar way that earths’ aurora and the stars in the universe kept reappearing even in the dark ages of civilization.
Religious orders during the dark ages served as conservationists to protect the Bible during the dark ages and even in spite of periods of human failings in the history of the benefits of religion and beliefs of a Creator and judgement after death, religion continues to exist in every generation since the beginning of humankind, yet many animals’ species have become extinct.
In My Opinion,
We need to conserve teaching religion to our offspring and preserve the good results that occur when people believe in religious teachings of morals, and a judgement after death.
School vouchers will help preserve the diminishment of learning religious morals in the USA. We need to end building economic roadblocks in order to conserve religion from extinction same as animals’ fate.
In other words, if religion becomes extinct in the USA, we will more likely fail to pass the tests of judgement of our Creator, as history has proven over time and generations ever since King Solomon observed and recorded his observations and advice to help us “wise up,” and conserver our already learned Ancestral Knowledge to help us from repeating the same follies of past generations and dark ages.

Conserving Ancestral Knowledge of Religion, to help humans preserve knowledge to help them past test to determine their eternal fate, wise or foolish?
