I have been reading the books of Moses and it astonishes me me how God requires the constant sacrifice of innocent animals. Loads and loads of them. I would have thought that a god with insight would have had compassion for other sentient beings. I don't get it. The only explanation is the books of Moses were written by more primitive humans and that they thought God would be pleased with such outrages behaviour. Me personally, I think if there is a god, He would have compassion for animals. After all, we are animals too. We all came from a common ancestor.
