The first episode of David Attenborough's latest docu-series Seven Worlds, One Planet dropped on BBC One this evening (October 27), taking viewers to the “frozen wilderness” of Antarctica.

And it looks like the legendary documentary maker has set a new record, as the show left viewers in streams of tears less than ten minutes in.

While it appeared to be the start of a heartwarming journey, Attenborough warns us that baby seals are unable to swim for the first ten days of their lives. And when a raging blizzard hits the solid ice, the young mums are faced with the toughest decision – to stay with their pups or shelter in the water.
...
Once the storm has cleared, we’re shown that some of the pups sadly didn’t make it – although there is some hope, as the next clip sees one of the seals and her baby reunited.

Nonetheless, the scenes left fans in floods of tears, taking to social media to express their emotions:

And God didn't bother to help cute baby seals as they slowly freeze to death?  Why not?  (Original sin!  It's all our fault!")
Does this universe seem like one designed by a kindly and loving God, or a mindless material world of nature?

A fine teaching moment.

Watch a cheetah kill a newborn Thompson's so she can feed her newborn kits and the whole thing comes into focus.

God doesn’t do much for baby turtles, either.  

Nature red in tooth and claw should do so much to dissuade humans from accepting the axiom of a good or benevolent god.  But no.
god, ugh

One of my friends runs interference for the green sea turtles that hatch out near his Florida home. He uses a weedeater to dissuade the gulls. Turns out that if he kills one the gulls go after it instead of the turtles. Shy

Isaiah 11
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.


So what is God waiting for?

 Just so.  Watch a group of men kill baby  seals with clubs, for their fur. Things out of focus again .

It's clear that if God exists he's either a total sadist, just plain incompetent or he just thinks that the song Kiss From a Rose sucks and he's a little confused about who wrote it.

 Why would I do that if you were right there? 

Ya never know what  you might eat until you're hungry enough ---------The history of the nineteenth  century Irish famines are replete with stories of cannibalism, especially of babies.

lol ... the reality is I actually was there when Greenpeace came protesting the yearly seal hunt back in the 1970s. Contrary to what they said, the point of the seal hunt and killing the baby seals was not to get their furs. It was to the decline the seal population in Atlantic Canada because they ate all the fish. The reasons the baby seals were targeted was because they were easy prey.

But as the movement went forward, and laws against the seal hunt were made, the seal population increased dramatically, and put an entire fishing industry out of business. The seals also caused a lot of damage to netting and other fishing gear. 

All of that was accomplished because Greenpeace cherry picked a couple videos in which a seal was not killed by a single blow, and instead showed repeated footage of a couple seals that were able to survive as many as 5 or 6 blows. The reality is, the vast majority of the seals (98%) were, in fact, killed with a single blow, very humanely.

Taking the seal pelts was just an added bonus, but was not the only objective, at least not for us. Other seal hunters collected the pelts as a living though.

And yes, I killed seals, and have no shame about it at all.

Maybe next time, he can set out a few paper bowls of dry cat food to draw the seagulls away from the turtles?

Probably as many as were following our boat back to port in y2k. A group of us had gone deep sea fishing on a charter, and the crew was cleaning our fish and throwing the entrails off the stern. That "flock" would have made good stock footage for a remake of "The Birds", ala Alfred Hitchcock.
