Are you referring to Gen Douglas Haig? Or Gen Alexander Haig? Douglas Haig was a Calvary soldier on horseback, just about the time tanks and mechanical weapons were being used in war. He often spoke of how the horse could never be replaced, and was the backbone of the military. So I'm guessing he was probably compared to a horse, but in an honorable and respectful way. Gen Alexander Haig served as Secretary of State under President Reagan. When the President was shot, Vice President Bush was out of the country. Haig called a press conference and informed the world he is in charge, since the President is incapacitated. Since the Vice President assumes the Presidency, regardless where he is, and the House Speaker, followed by Senate Pro Temp both are ahead of Sec of State in line of succession to the White House, Haig became a laughing stock, and called dangerous by others. Not sure they ever compared him to any animal. But if so, that was likely the event he would have been.

Aldrich Originally Answered: Was the serpent that tempted man an animal, the devil or an animal possessed by the devil? (details)?
It would help if you understood the mindset of the people who first committed hat account to writing. The Jewish scribes were in "captivity" in Babylon when this was first committed to "paper". To the Jews of that time, the serpent was a symbol of great guile, very wise & fully capable of convincing victims of the truthfulness of an 'untruth'. Even in the New Testament, Christians are advised 'be ye wise as serpents...." So there is no curse on serpents, but they are used here to show how crafty the tempter can be.

I think it's really a story about how snakes lost their legs, there is no devil there. It's kind of an important detail, wouldn't it plainly say "the devil possessed the snake" or something of the sort? Just because the devil is called a "serpent" once in Revelation doesn't make every snake a devil. Like, Jesus called Peter a "satan" once, does that mean Peter is Satan?

Satan used the serpent like a ventriloquist uses a dummy. Satan was called the original serpent because he used the snake to lie to Eve. Genesis 3 can be translated in different ways. Why not check out 5-6 different translations to find what it really says?

the troops were said to be "lions led by donkeys", and General Haig was in main donkey. This belief has been disputed recently by historians, but modern media (films etc.) have continued to perpetuate this myth.

Taletta Originally Answered: Are there any safe alternatives to animal testing? Other reason against animal testing?
An animal is not a human being, they respond differently to people, so even if there is negative responses from a drug taken by a rat, it does not mean it is safe for humans. Animals can suffer very badly from being in testing situations, they feel stress and that affects the test results. There are millions of already tested compounds and combinations of compounds, there is no need to keep testing for adverse affects for make up, toiletries or cleaning products, they should use what we already know is safe, not just through laboratory testing but from wide public use over a long period of time. Yes, there are lots of different ways of testing from from using human tissue cultures to using computer and mathematical modeling. Drugs are not tested in combinations, so an older person with lots of medical conditions may take a wide range of drugs. Usually people do not just take one drug, they take many. The same with cleaning products, there is no testing done for combinations of cleaning products used in the home, most people use many, from washing up liquids to carpet cleaners. There are strict controls and systems that are supposed to make sure that animals are treated well and reduce suffering, but there have been many cases where these have been broken and animals have been abused. It comes down to your own ethics, what you think is right. IS an animal's life more important that your grandma's when she needs a life saving drug? Do animals have right to life, to live without suffering? Do you think animals suffer pain as we do? It depends on what your priorities are, what you think is right or wrong. Some people will not use any item/product that has been tested on an animal, others will take prescribed medications. How safe you think other alternatives are to testing, how willingly you will accept the disadvantages of using other methods to test products, all depends on what you personally think is right or wrong. Only you can decide.
Taletta Originally Answered: Are there any safe alternatives to animal testing? Other reason against animal testing?
One good reason not to use animals for testing is because humans and animals generally react differently to the same product, so the effect a product has on an animal may have no bearing on what would happen if the same product were used on a human.
