I have come across Christians who say that, no, there was no death, cause, see, the predators were all vegetarian.
Which is nice and all except ... plants live too, don't they.
Soooo, from the plants' point of view, the garden was a great massacre and things actually improved after the fall.
Oh and what about the bacteria that have to die in order for the soil to have the right nutrient level for the plants? IIRC that's part of biology, right?
And since God Invented the rainbow after the flood, wasn't the sun rather harsh when the atmosphere had no light refraction?
