King Ed Ra

Actually, part of our hierarchical notions of the food chain are tied into Western Civ's Judeo-Christian roots. Think Cain and Abel--who had the "more pleasing sacrifice" to the Big J? (Hint: it wasn't the jealous murderous farmer). Our mythology is based on the idea of redemption through blood offerings. That mythology is the background radiation that all our science, etc. rises from. It's the precedence of blood over earth that makes us go all weak in the knees over predators. Most fertility religions have a much more balanced view of blood and earth than ours.
