Keith, one of the weird things about this mortal life of ours is that
we have to kill other living beings in order to live ourselves.  Our
physical body needs the bodies of other beings (and yes, plants
are living beings too) in order to survive.  It seems cruel, but it
is all about sacrifice, and how we have to sacrifice ourselves
in order for others to live, or sacrifice others in order for ourselves
to live.  So, murder is unavoidable.

	Yes, those and more.  The gods and goddesses of Tibetan
Buddhism come to mind as well.  But even the gods will eventually
reincarnate.  Life is an adventure, and all part of our inherent desire
to express ourselves.
