If you say something in a debate that can be attacked, you will be attacked.

Sure it would, but who the fuck would care? Animals don't have any comprehension of the overall state of the world and would carry on doing their business whether we're here to kill them or not.

Short answer: Nobody cares if nobody's there.

No, and we have no obligation to help it. We (on the economic/political scale of things) only do anything about the environment at all because the damage we cause comes back to bite us, not to bite other life forms.

And do you know how many Christians take the Old Testament seriously at all? It's not an issue in and of itself. People who take a literal interpretation of the Old Testament already have dangerous personalities and would just spread their horrible ideas through some other means even without religion.

Religion isn't the problem, ideas are the problem. Religion is but one means to convey ideas.
