The great bee deaths and the extinction of animals on earth


Every spring the time comes when the frogs croak or hedgehogs rustle through the bushes on mild nights. That sounds pretty idyllic, but does it still exist? To According to studies by the British Society for Hedgehog Protection, the hedgehog population there is only 3% of the post-war population. And it's not much better in Germany either, six federal states already have the hedgehog on the red list. We are used to hearing or reading reports about the endangerment of animal and plant species in the mass media on a regular basis. But who wants to deal with these negative reports? Do we even notice in Central Europe that the endangered animal species are no longer exotic exceptions, but familiar native species such as hedgehogs, sparrows, larks or tree frogs?
More on this at the beginning of this study. Part 2 deals with the importance of bees for the survival of humans and part 3 specifically with bee deaths.
 


Poisons from industrial agriculture: 3/4 of the amphibians are threatened with extinction

The numbers of frogs and toads are indeed falling dramatically. Almost three quarters of the native amphibian species are even threatened with extinction. According to experts, this is mainly due to industrial agriculture, which has largely destroyed the natural habitat of these animals. About half of the amphibian species found in Europe do not live near water, as one might assume, but in fields and fields. Many animals also die from the agricultural poisons that are regularly sprayed on the fields. But if the frogs and toads disappear, this in turn has consequences for other species, since amphibians play an important role in the food cycle.
In nature everything is related to everything. And we humans are part of it, we are part of nature. But do we also perceive them? The dramatic disappearance of frogs and toads practically on our doorstep went unnoticed for a long time.

Man-made climate change: sparrows and tits are also on the red list of threatened species

It is similar with another example, the great tit. With the difference: you not only create problems for industrial agriculture, but also climate change. The global warming caused by humans means that the plants sprout earlier in spring, and the caterpillars on these plants develop earlier accordingly. This often makes it difficult for the tits to find food for their young.
Just a few years ago, who would have thought that a bird, which is found in large numbers in practically every garden, would one day run the risk of becoming extinct? But it doesn't just affect the tits. Around half of the more than 200 breeding bird species found in Bavaria are already on the red list today, and a further 34 species are on what is known as an advance warning list. There you can find skylark, goldfinch, starling, partridge, turtledove, but also field sparrow and house martin.

Silent spring is closer than we think

The silent springas Rachel Carson described it back in 1962 in her book of the same name, is possibly closer than we think. Around 50 years ago, this book was the trigger for the fact that the agricultural toxin DDT was banned in Germany. And it was the starting shot for the environmental movement. But the phrase "silent spring" does not also mean: Man cannot understand the language of animals, he can hardly empathize with nature. This has been true for a very long time, this was true 50 years ago when the book The silent spring appeared and this is even more true today.
In addition, many fatal human influences on nature only become noticeable after decades. Scientists working with Prof. Stefan Dullinger from the University of Vienna published a corresponding study on this in April 2013, and they found that if animals or plants are visibly endangered today, the cause is often far back, for example in the development of industry a hundred years ago Years. And what we are doing to nature today to a much greater extent than a hundred years ago, the consequences of which are still to come.

Arctic foxes perish on mercury

An example of this: The Arctic seems distant to us, but is that really it? Researchers wanted to know why the number of arctic foxes is declining in the Arctic, especially on the coast. There, the foxes feed primarily from the sea, where mercury pollution is currently increasing - due to the emissions that have been blown from the power plants into the Arctic since the beginning of industrialization, including from Europe, and are deposited there in the ground. Due to rising temperatures, the toxins are now released again. The already dramatic global extinction of species could therefore worsen significantly in the next few decades. Nonetheless, most people still regard animals and plants as available mass, as soulless matter, as indoctrinated by the churches for centuries, which people can use at will. We hardly think about the consequences of this behavior. A fatal mistake, as it now turns out: Nature has been surprisingly tolerant towards us so far, not every cause has an immediate effect. But now the bill is being presented to us more and more.

What did the poisons do to the bees?

But what did we humans learn from it? Despite all these findings, the extermination of our second neighbors, the animals, continues unabated today. The example of bees shows the resistance to rethinking. Although environmental associations and scientists have been pointing out for many years that the use of agricultural toxins in agriculture is very likely to be a major factor in countless bee colonies dying year after year, the European Commission has only now [2013] brought about three of the to ban the most dangerous plant toxins, so-called neonicotinoids. The producers of these chemicals deny this danger to this day. Common sense tells us that a poison does not only cause damage when it kills animals, in this case bees. Alcohol, for example, which is basically a neurotoxin, can impair people's ability to orient themselves even in small doses. Neurotoxins used in agriculture can also make it difficult for bees to find their way around, even in small quantities, so that they can no longer find their way back to the beehive.

Because the bees are gone: In China, workers have to pollinate the fruit trees by hand

Three quarters of our food is directly or indirectly dependent on insect pollination. In China, the film showed More than honey, More than honey, workers are already being hired to pollinate the blossoms of the fruit trees by hand, because the bees disappeared in whole areas due to a ruthless agricultural policy in Mao's time. But is it better in Central Europe, where the wild animals have already fled in droves to the cities, because they can no longer find habitats in the cleared monoculture landscape and are also threatened by lethal injection and, as always, by hunters? According to experts, industrialized agriculture in particular has long since become the number one species killer (For more on bees, see parts 2 and 3 below).

The hope of the earth begins again in still small oases

So what can we do? For example, we could find out how the food we eat is grown and produced. In a peaceful way - or at the expense of nature and animals. We could also keep our home gardens free of poison and, as far as possible, ensure a certain variety of species of flowers and bushes that provide food for insects and birds. Also the human is happy about a piece of natural flower meadow. And birds are also grateful when we feed them all year round.
These are only simple steps, but they can also draw circles. It is always worth doing something for the animals and countering the downward spiral with more and more dying species: Hope for the earth with small oases all over the world, where biodiversity can develop again for the benefit of all. We all know the golden rule of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. It means treating all life that surrounds us as we would like to be treated ourselves, this also applies to nature.

The Church teaches a heaven without animals

The Church institutions teach it differently. According to church teaching, all living beings must be subjected to man and his interests, because they should only be there for the good of man. In the later "sky" of the institutions of the church there should be no more animals, because animals supposedly do not go to heaven, only people. Animals are not either"Catholic" or "evangelical" and therefore do not meet the requirements which these religions prescribe for entering heaven. Then what place of misery is that? Church Christianity prays in "Our Father"-Prayer too"As in heaven, so on earth". If one were to address this prayer not to the Creator God, the Free Spirit, but to the God of the Church and one understands it in such a way that the Church's ideas about the "sky" should also spread on earth, then this is becoming more and more true in our time in a frightening way with regard to animals. The animals give way until in the end there are possibly no more animals - as in the Catholic and Protestant afterlife according to these ideas; maybe except for a few insects resistant to all destructive influences. However, those who do not want this must not allow this and should also apply the commandment to love one's neighbor to animals.

The extinction of animals

An answer from the spiritual world
given as early as 1989 through the word of the prophet

"Woe to those who sin against man, animal, plant, stone and against everything that God has given them to live in him! The mind of many people has become dull. Their human ego only thinks about their own advantages. In doing so, selfish people are disadvantaged his fellow men and also exploits the kingdoms of nature. The man of this time[1989] Lay and lay hands on the great terrestrial man, the earth. It pollutes the earth, desecrates life on it and intervenes in the atmosphere through its use of nuclear power, as well as chemicals and other things. So it desecrates the earth and everything that lives on it, and destroys its atmospheric mantle, which offers protection to it and all earthly life. It is precisely at this turn of the ages, the turn from the old, sinful time to the time of light, that animal and plant species call out with their powers of feeling, with the language of their consciousness their Creator for help and salvation. It is unimaginable that animals and plants suffer from the excesses of the human ego, human selfishness. The enslaved life calls for mercy and redemption. God, my father, the creator of all life forms, has heard the enslaved creature. Many animal species are dying out because of the opposing behavior of humans. Your spiritual powers either go back into the earth soul or into the pure areas of eternal being. That is salvation for many. However, many of them come back when the light dwells on earth because people live in unity with God. "

Part 2


Bees in danger and, without them, there is no survival
Aviation artists secure the life of the planet

They are the most precise builders in the world, they navigate according to an internal map, carry out detailed calculations of the position of the sun, distinguish hundreds of scents and do great things for our planet: "When the bee disappears from the earth, then humans only have four years to live ". This quote about an insect that we often see simply as a supplier of honey is attributed to Albert Einstein. The task of the bees on our planet is by no means to produce sweets for more highly developed mammals, but rather to pollinate millions and millions of flowers - on fruit trees, in vegetable gardens, on meadows, fields and in forests. "Without bees there is no pollination, no plants, no animals, no people", is Einstein's formula for bees. The danger is real. Because currently one observes a death of bees.

Six jobs in 30 days?

In order to be able to reliably carry out this task, which ensures the continued existence of all life, the bees have organized themselves so perfectly and harmoniously that has never been found anywhere else in humans: "The fascinating thing about bees is their essence," he explains longtime beekeeper Hermann Glas. "Fascinating because everything works 100%. The bee is born and she knows what to do from day one. The task is inside her." This is by no means just about pollinating flowers - in the course of its short life (30 to 70 days) the bee performs six different jobs: After hatching, it cleans the honeycomb cells and the hive during its first four days as a cleaning bee, because the queen does not lay new eggs in uncleaned combs. From the 5th to the 11th day she is a wet nurse and feeds the larvae. She then worked as a warehouse worker for 3 days: she stowed the nectar in the cells and ventilated the beehive by flapping her wings very quickly. Finally, on the 14th day of her life, she becomes a construction bee and constructs honeycomb cells - hexagonal, one like the other. On the 18th day, the bee switches to the military bees and keeps intruders such as wasps, hornets and butterflies away at the entrance to the hive. Only then, on its 22nd day of life, does the bee become a collector. It flies from flower to flower to harvest nectar, pollen and propolis (a kind of tree resin), food for the beehive.
How does the bee know what to do? Who gives the impulse to move from one job to the next? Who came up with the famous and long-researched round dance and the waggle dance, with which the bee communicates the exact location, distance and quality of a food source to the other bees when they return to the hive?

Bees live in collective

"Bees are highly intelligent beings. This resourcefulness, this order - we humans cannot achieve that," enthuses the beekeeper Hermann Glas, who looks after around 40 colonies. For him, bees are not individual beings, but a unit: "A bee colony is like a being, it has something like a collective soul." Even very old beekeepers never speak of "the bees", but always of "the bees". And it is three-sexed: There is the queen who is fed the valuable royal jelly and lays around two million eggs in the honeycomb cells during her 3-4 year life as an egg layer - around the solstice up to 2000 eggs a day; there are the female worker bees who build the hive, keep it in order, collect nectar and feed the larvae, and the male drones, of which there are only a few hundred in the hive. The drones play a more tragic role in the bee colony. Somewhat clumsier and hairier than the worker bees, they are only tolerated in the hive as possible pollinators of the queen. They cannot feed themselves and are taken care of by the worker bees. Nor can they contribute to the defense - they lack the lancing device. Your job is simply to go on the wedding flight in spring / summer and to inseminate the queen - which only a few succeed and leads to immediate death.

Queen or worker bee?

Whether the bee spends its existence as a drone, worker or queen is not determined by genetic determination, but simply by the treatment of the egg: For example, specially shaped, larger "queen cradles" are built for the queen larvae.The larvae are fed a special juice, royal jelly, which the young bees produce in their glands. The larvae of future worker bees, on the other hand, receive from the 6-7 Day a mixture of pollen, honey and water for food. The drones in turn receive the same feed, only they come from unfertilized eggs. And who now regulates the division into queen, worker bee and drone? Probably again "the bees", the soul of the bee colony. This also registers when the people get too big. Then the queen is put on a diet so that she lays fewer eggs, becomes leaner and therefore able to fly. Now the people are dividing, they "rave about": The old queen leaves the beehive with part of her court and looks for a new place to stay. Royal offspring has long been taken care of - a young queen was raised in a new queen's cradle. After her wedding flight, she takes over the egg-laying and ensures harmony in the hive through her fragrance.

Neurons and the consciousness of bees

Is it just instinct that controls life in the Bien? Do bees have consciousness? They think? Researchers from all nations are currently addressing these questions. During his studies, the biologist James L. Gould of Princeton University came across a case that no one, not even himself, had expected: Gould set up a mobile feeding station for his bees and moved them the same distance every day. As expected, the collectors tracked down the new location every time. But what happened next went beyond anything that could reasonably be expected: After a few days the bees "knew" where the feeding station would be today and were already doing their rounds there impatiently when Gould arrived with the feed. Did the bees see through the principle of his experiment? Gould could not find a reasonable explanation for this.
But his helplessness was to be increased again when he made the experiment more difficult. He did not move the feeding station by a constant distance, but increased the displacement from time to time by a factor of 1.25 - anything but an easy-to-understand law. And yet the bees knew how to deal with it. As if they had understood the rule in the course of the experiment, they drew their waiting loops in the right place and counted on food. They apparently acted according to the rule: Take the last transfer and add 25% to it, then you get something to eat.
To date, no one has a conclusive explanation of how the insects, with their milligram brain, bring about such almost "impossible" achievements. Most biologists keep a low profile. Except, perhaps, Donald F. Griffin, the mastermind of the study of the cognitive. He expresses what his colleagues consider "unfounded with the current state of research": namely that bees are possibly capable of the simplest thoughts and consciousness processes. Griffin reverses the argument. Precisely because the bees have so few neurons in their heads and accordingly are unable to store fixed programs, they are much more dependent than large animals on the help of their consciousness in order to be able to behave sensibly. Is this really such a miracle? If one assumes that all life is animated, that the universal spirit, God, flows through every form of life, then the suggestion is that the consciousness of the individual bees in the bee colony is potentiated. Living in a group creates a higher level of consciousness that can no longer be tied to the number of neurons in the individual bee brain.

The bees' struggle for survival

Regardless of how you may stand on this question, whether you recognize bees with instinct, awareness or a community soul: Anyone who immerses themselves in the processes and laws of a bee colony is fascinated, feels respect, and feels awe of these beings, on which our survival depends . It is all the more incomprehensible how little is being done to preserve and protect it. Egoistically as usual, humans have degraded bees to honey producers - not without consequences: The beekeepers' ambition to breed creates monster crossbreeds that are difficult to get under control, as the example of the "killer bees" in Brazil has shown. In 1956, ambitious breeders created a new breed of bees with a particularly high yield rate. The side effect: She developed aggressive behavior at the same time. 600 people died as a result of a killer bee attack.
The most recent self-created catastrophe that has threatened Europe's beekeeping for around 25 years is the Varroa mite, which kills entire bee colonies. A scientist had brought an Asiatic breed of bees to Germany for research purposes - and in the process introduced an Asiatic species of mite that is fatal to bees. Since then, around 10% of the bee colonies have perished from the mite every year. At the beginning of 2001 there were more mites due to the warm winter, which killed 40% of the local bee colonies - the number one topic of conversation among beekeepers. While the government in Spain has already intervened to support amateur beekeepers with subsidies in their struggle for the survival of bees, the death of bees does not seem to impress German politicians very much.
But not only the number of bees is falling, also the number of beekeepers. Most of the 90,000 hobby beekeepers are over 60 years old, the next generation obviously cannot be warmed up for beekeeping. Here: "It is great fun to look after bees, it never gets boring," says Hermann Glas, who is still enthusiastic after 58 years of beekeeping. "There are still so many mysteries that have not yet been clarified. What worked in one year is completely different the next year. The behavior of the bees is constantly changing. Working with the bees requires a lot of feeling. You can not proceed according to scheme F, but rather you have to feel the essence of the bees, get to know them. That also means that you get to know yourself: If I go to the bees in a rude and unfocused manner or if I throw my stingers out against someone in my mind, I can be sure that the bees will also be restless and the probability of being stung is greater ... "In this way, the beekeeper can learn firsthand the laws of nature, the harmony of creatures with one another, the natural peacefulness of all forms of life, which ultimately only comes from human intervention the train gets.
If you want to embark on such an expedition, you can first read a sea of ​​literature or find a beekeeper nearby. Perhaps the very first step is to give the little striped creatures more attention and respect when they buzz around us or when we have the opportunity to observe them up close while they are collecting nectar. Because we survive because they collect! (Silke Dziallas)

honey

The bee flies 40,000 times for a jar of honey, visits 1.5 million flowers and flies around the earth almost once. Bees collect more honey in their honeycombs than they need themselves. What the bees do not need themselves can be taken by humans and with this honey they get something very valuable: Honey, for example, contains natural penicillin and strengthens the immune system. Therefore, a glass of tea with honey can help over the touch of a cold.
 

 

Inquired:

insects

Why are bees so important for pollination? After all, there are many other insects ... the layman might think. The fact is: of the 80% of plants that reproduce through pollination, 80% can only be pollinated by bees.
Apple blossoms, for example, can also be pollinated by other insects, but the quality of the apples, the taste, the resilience and the consistency of the apples are far better with bee pollination. Why is that? It's still a secret. Hobby beekeeper Hermann Glas, who looks after the bees in peaceful farming: "I suspect - but that's only a guess - that the bees leave a tiny bit of their serum in the flower when you visit, which then influences the quality of the apples. "
 

 

Inquired:

Bee sting

"I used to go to the bees in knight armor - wrapped up stab-proof," says Hermann Glas, a hobby beekeeper for 58 years. But after all this time I have learned: As I am to the bees, the bees are also to me. When I go to the box - you might be laughing now - I'll talk to the bees, I'll tell them what I want to do. Then the bees are also very calm. Today I do all my work with my bare hands, because I have a lot more feeling. And if I do get a bee sting, which rarely happens, it is only because I accidentally pinched the bee or disturbed it. "
 

 

Inquired:

The mite

The Varroa mite was introduced in 1977 by scientists from Asia. In some regions of Germany 80% of the bee colonies perished in that year. Today around 10% of the bee colonies die from the mite every year.
In conventional beekeeping, the Varroa mite is attacked with poison: "Bayvarol", which consists of the synthetic pyrethroid Flumenthrin, and "Perizin", which contains an organic phosphoric acid ester, are widespread. Because of residues of these poisons in honey, the chemical club is criticized as a mite poison in the crossfire. The experts from the University of Hohenheim can detect pericin in particular in honey, but well below the limit value. Another disadvantage of this method: the Varroa mite quickly becomes resistant to pericin and flumenthrin. Hermann Glas looks after the bees in peaceful farming. He tries to protect his bees against the mite in other ways. "Do not kill the mite, but weaken it" is his motto. The weakening takes place with diluted formic acid and essential oils. "It doesn't kill the mites, but the bees get a grip on them, they learn to defend themselves and to live with the mites.
 

 


 

part 3


The mysterious death of bees

"If the bee disappears from the earth, then humans only have four years to live". This quote is attributed to Albert Einstein. And the fact is: many human food crops depend on pollination by bees. The massive death of bee colonies is all the more threatening.

In Germany z. B. in the first half of 2003 already 10,000 colonies died, mostly due to the infestation of the Varroa mite. In some regions, up to 80% of the population died.
This mite already lays its eggs in the maturing offspring of the bees, so that they are often born disabled or mutilated. Even healthy bees are harmed by the mite because it literally sucks the bees out.
But what is the real cause - except that frivolous scientists introduced the mite from Asia in 1977 for "research purposes"? And apart from the fact that there is now another dangerous enemy of bees, the Kashmir virus, which - ironically - was probably imported from far away together with bee colonies in order to replenish the losses caused by the Varroa mite.

The experts, how could it be otherwise, disagree. On the one hand, the change in the climate comes into question: The cool and damp weather has weakened the bees. Other experts point to the man-made changes in the landscape: hedges have been removed; Meadows are over-fertilized and mowed too early; The frequently grown oilseed rape flowers only briefly - all of this means that the food supply for the bees, especially the pollen for the offspring, is declining. The parasite then benefits from the fact that the bees are poorly nourished. Finally, agricultural poisons such as B. Insecticides affect the health of bees and make them vulnerable.

The bees show how important it is to reorient agriculture towards a natural, peaceful interaction between humans and nature and animals. And the mites? Perhaps they reflect us humans, how we behave towards mother earth: like a parasite sucking out its host. (Silke Dziallas)

 

The bees
respect as independent beings

Interview from 2003 with Hermann Glas,
an experienced beekeeper

question: Hermann, it was not easy to get an interview appointment. Do the bees keep you busy?

Hermann Glas
: They currently have a very high urge to swarm.

What does that mean?

The bee colonies have grown rapidly. They divide, it becomes a swarm. The swarm is natural reproduction, growth according to the laws of nature.

Photo:bee - Steffen Banhardt (public domain)

The bees form new colonies. I have the impression that they want to quickly replenish the losses of the spring.

Did you have high losses?

Not too high. The bottom line is that the total failure amounts to approx. 25%. We had almost no losses at two of our three locations; we only had more failures at one location. Young colonies, i.e. colonies with young queens, had wintered there and established the brood nest early on. In January there was already a lot of brooding; in February came the cold spell with minus 10 degrees and more. In the brood nest, 35 degrees are required. The bees therefore had to absorb a temperature gradient of around 45 degrees. The peoples have literally exhausted themselves. The result was an intestinal disease, Nosema.

But you didn't have any problems with the mite?

The Varroa mites can be found in every bee colony. It's just a question of how to cope with it. The mite sucks the bees' blood, which naturally weakens them. I guess that's the main cause of the huge breakdowns everywhere. To keep the mites at bay, I treat the bee colonies three to four times with 60 percent formic acid before winter feeding. This weakens the mite in advance. After feeding, I treat with fragrances from herbal oils. The mites get intoxicated by the fragrances, which severely restricts reproduction.

What could it be related to the fact that the losses on the farms of peaceful cultivation are kept within limits?

There is much speculation, discussion and writing about the causes of bee deaths. Some assume that the bees' immune system is generally weakened by environmental influences, including the mite. Then there is the problem with the food supply, which has been greatly reduced by clearing hedges, etc. We are good for the bees because we create hedges, because we let the meadows grow and bloom, because we neither fertilize nor spray meadows and fields. We use the fallow land that arises from three-field farming to sow bee pasture, e.g. B. the Tübingen seed mixture with seven different traditional plants. Of course, we do not use any other chemical substances in beekeeping. Above all, however, it is important to respect the bees as independent beings, as part of creation, i.e. to treat them appropriately. I take a lot of time for the bees. Above all, calm and careful work with them is required.

And the bees appreciate that?

In any case, I hardly need any protective clothing when I work with the bees. I only have a pipe to blow to spread some smoke around me. I only use face protection for longer work on the beehive or when I rescue a swarm, that is, when I capture it.

What if there were no bees and beekeepers? Would wild bees or other insects then do the job of pollinating, e.g. B. take over from apple trees?

I can answer that with a clear "no". 80% of all plant species are dependent on pollination for their reproduction - and again around 80% of these species are pollinated exclusively by bees. There are far too few wild bees and other insects to produce the many fruits that humans have grown. There would then be much less fruit, and what little would have grown smaller or partially withered. Since 1977, when the Varroa mite was introduced, the number of bees and the number of beekeepers have decreased dramatically.We should be very concerned about this.

Some say it would be exploitation to take honey away from bees.

With us, beekeeping is not geared towards profit. But depending on the nectar supply, there is enough honey that is simply left over. The bees don't take a vacation. It is not in their nature. And they naturally have a seven-day week. A bee dwelling consists of several floors with "magazines". The incubation chamber is located in the lower and second magazine. In contrast, the honey is stored on the upper floors. If the space provided for the honey is full, the bees store their honey in the area of ​​the brood nest. However, this would deprive the queen of the opportunity to lay many eggs - the number of worker bees is dwindling. That is why we take honeycombs with ripe honey from the honey room and spin them. This creates space there again and the brood nest can expand again for sufficient offspring. The bees are happy to give us some of the excess honey. I am sure you want to do the people a service with it.

Thank you for the interview!
 

 

news:

23.10. / 27.10.2006 - Are German forest owners planning to eradicate red deer? - While man is destroying the lungs of planet earth, the rainforest, and thus driving ten thousand times the extinction of species as well as the ecological collapse of civilization and millions of deaths and infirmity, things are becoming more and more brutal in German forests. Although mother earth is supposed to be a living space for people, animals and plants, people measured themselves according to the church-Christian tradition Genesis 1:28 ("Subdue the earth") and Genesis 9: 2 ("Fear and terror of you be upon all animals on earth") the absolute dominion over nature and its merciless exploitation for its profit. "The forest has to make a profit", for example the district manager of the Roman Catholic Foundation Juliusspital in Würzburg (Main-Post, October 23, 2006). According to the opinion of exclusively profit-oriented "forest owners", this profit is reduced, especially by red deer (stags) and roe deer, who have to hide from the hunters in the forest and of course need something to eat there.
 
Every tree is searched with millimeter precision by the "experts" to see whether a stag or roe has nibbled on it. The investigations are the Preparatory work for wildlife execution rateswhich will be determined afterwards. In this context, there have recently been calls to only tolerate red deer "in specially defined red deer areas" (Main-Post, October 23, 2006). In practical terms, this means that deer, hinds and their calves would - like so many other wild animal species before them - be exterminated in the wild and only endured in certain areas or wildlife parks. Only then, according to the logic behind it, would the wood of the trees yield the maximum profit. The logic is the same as for the destruction of the rainforest in other parts of the world: "Maximum profit for the human user, suffering and death of animals do not matter, and 'After me the flood'".

There are deer and roe deer (Red deer and roe deer) no forest animals by nature. They love the vastness of fields and meadows and would also eat moderately there (only the most necessary - in contrast to the gluttony of man and his excessive overproduction of mountains of meatwhich also wastes drinking water in apocalyptic amounts). But the hunters lurk on almost every square meter in Germany - day and night and almost at any time of the year. And only profit-oriented farmers and forest owners indulge the animals in a figurative sense "no grain"because they can then no longer sell it. That is why people are constantly shouting for the hunters, because an animal that eats something is automatically considered a "pest". And possible "fodder meadows" (where the farmer wouldn't have such a big problem) have long since become "dead shooting meadows" because the animals can be killed there most easily. Many animals therefore no longer dare to leave the forest. Due to the constant stress of fleeing from the hunters, the animals also need a lot more food than normal and therefore bite into trees. In addition, the self-regulating reproductive behavior of the animals gets out of hand, since people who consider themselves intelligent are constantly shooting to pieces the established family structures. In addition, there is occasionally an increase in the birth rate due to massive masts of individual hunters. Behind this is usually the idea of ​​wanting to kill as many animals as possible in order to be able to pay the hunting lease with the yield of the meat, to have a profit for yourself and to look good with the killing colleagues thanks to high shooting rates.

The Church is mainly to blame for this terrible development. She denied the animals the feelings and the immortal soul and decided that the 5th commandment ("You should not kill") does not apply to animals (see The Theologian No. 7, Part 4 - Man and Beast - Crash into barbarism through ecclesiastical Christianity)although it was given through the Prophet Moses without exception. "God has placed animals under the rule of man", it says in the Catholic Catechism(No. 2417). But what kind of God would that be, who would allow and approve such a bestial rule? The priestly caste of our time does it, however, and in the ranks of hunters, profit-oriented forest owners and farmers there are an above-average number of loyal church members. And a vegetarian lifestyle is still very rare among church members. And vice versa: Among people who eat a vegetarian diet and who no longer fuel the demand for game meat and other meat, there are an above-average number of church dropouts.

A recent example of clerical hypocrisy and contempt for nature was experienced by visitors to the Hubertus Mass in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral on October 21, 2006, where the following request was made to the Church God: "Lord, forgive all those who do not understand and do not accept hunting and hunting customs ! "

But now it is noticeable worldwide: The earth, nature and all forms of life no longer obey the selfish tyrant man and the ecclesiastical opponents of his shameful actions. Man has made mother earth, his best friend, an enemy. Now the earth strikes back. And the murder of animals leads more and more to the death of people. The apocalypse has already begun ...

PS: However, the prophet of God Isaiah also announces the opposite pole that will arise on earth, a gradually building kingdom of peace.
 

At the beginning of the 19th century there were around 60 million bison in what is now the United States. In 1902 there were only 23 of these magnificent buffalos left. In between the white settlers, mostly Protestants, came and slaughtered all the animals - partly for the soles of shoes, partly to deprive the Indians of the basic food and to starve them, partly for the fun of killing. The last 10,000 bison were shot down by snipers at the water points. "Faith alone is sufficient for the salvation of the soul", so the religion of the white man.

Link to the TV roundtable "The war against animals and a plea for the all-unity of life":
God, the Eternal, gave all living beings His breath of life and commissioned man to cultivate and preserve the earth with love and care for other creatures. The plants were given to humans and animals for food. The priestly caste of outer religions, however, demanded animal sacrifices and allowed animals to be killed and meat to be consumed. Jesus of Nazareth spoke against animal sacrifices, and He also wanted to end the consumption of meat, as evidenced by apocryphal writings outside the Bible. The institutions of the church, however, do not follow him, but follow the pagan priestly cults. They deny animals the immortal soul, reason and full capacity to suffer, and animals are still treated like "things" in German law and in comparable legal conceptions. The rest of God's creation is completely downgraded by the church as "lifeless", and they are released - like animals - for unrestrained exploitation. Extravagant phrases about the "preservation of creation" change little and are mainly added as "alibi". There is still a war against God's creation, legitimized by the churches. And vegetarians are cursed into an allegedly eternal hell in the doctrines from late antiquity that are still valid today.

The disregard of all non-human life up to the factory farming with its cruel slaughter factories, up to the horrific animal experiments up to the millions and up to the poisoning, manipulation and destruction of the whole creation, all this is the "fruit" of the development of the ecclesiastical west. To this day, the condition for this raging is that it must serve the supposed "benefit" of humans. But the war against the animals and the kingdoms of nature cannot be won by humanity, which is subservient to external religions. Because mother earth, who wants to be a good friend of man and has been made an enemy, defends herself against her destruction. This enemy cannot be bombed by any nation or by any alliance of nations. It is also of no use if the Vatican Church demands to keep "moderation" with the grays insofar as future generations can still use and exploit the earth and animals for their "benefit". Because the cosmic law "What man sows, that he will reap" also applies with regard to the terrible things that man does to animals.

Followers of the Christ of God respect life in all living beings. They see the animals as their little brothers and sisters who need their protection and a habitat worthy of them. Followers of Jesus do not eat the flesh of animals and strive to make the kingdom of peace a reality, of which God, the All-One, already spoke through the prophet Isaiah: "Then the wolf lives with the lamb, the panther lies with the goat. Calf and lions graze together, a little boy can look after them. Cow and she-bear make friends, their cubs lie next to each other. The lion eats straw like ox. The infant plays in front of the adder's loophole, the child stretches his hand into the cave Serpent. No more evil is done or crime committed on all of My Holy Mountain. "
