Does the earth really belong to the animals that were here before us? ?

I mean they were here millions of years before we evolved and we do them more harm than good. And also it’s quite contradictory that we coexist in the same world that they do. That’s why people are freaked out by snakes, cockroaches, spiders, etc They’re so unlike us. Evolution doesn’t give a sh!t about disgusting.

    The earth belongs to the living, doesn't it? People, bacteria, fungi, trees, rats, etc. We all hope to bequeath it to our descendants, but people have a chance of queering that process.

    It is true that animals, and other living organisms, have the right to live on this planet as much as we do. As for the reast of your question it is really silly nonsense that is ot worthy of an answer.

    Land animals were created on the same day that we were, and we have dominion over them. There's no doubt we haven't always exercised that well.

    Well...let's follow that line of reasoning to its logical conclusion.

    Let's say that the Earth DOES belong to the animal species that existed before us.

    Doesn't that mean that the Earth belongs to the animals species that existed before - say - mammals?

    And doesn't that mean that the Earth belongs to the animals species that existed before dinosaurs?

    And doesn't that mean that the Earth belongs to the animals species that existed before vertebrates?


    until we are back to the original single-celled life form

    the "true and rightful owner" of the Earth.

    Okay it is true that that the earth belonged to animals before us because, if you think about it first it was aquatic amoebas then the first coral so the first life began underwater then it evolved from underwater life to terrestrial life which the first terrestrial life was grass then trees then bugs then reptiles then bird the carnivorous animals T-Rex,  Triceratops, Pterodactyl and less known one that was actually bigger and deadlier than the T-Rex is the V-Rex and as you know a giant meteor hit the earth where is today is known as the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and then the first human life was Australopithecus and then it keeps evolving as it comes towards the future.

    Most animals don't have a concept of property ownership.  Even territorial animals are more excluding of their own species than of other species.

    It "belongs" to all living beings in the planet.
