    Concerning man being stronger than woman, it is only logical and reasonable to say the AVERAGE man is stronger than the AVERAGE woman. This is not biased or downplaying anyone, it is a simple fact. If those of you want to argue and dispute over this, fine. Someone posts a picture of a bodybuilding woman probably on steroids and someone knows a friend that can kick everyones butt, that is irrelevent. MOST woman are not like this. Does this mean that man better than woman? Not hardly. Man is not the "leader" of woman. He has been made physically stronger in MOST cases, that is all it is saying.

    If man attacked the animal I can see the point of them attacking us. But cats and dogs scratch and bite. Aligators, Crocodiles, Pirana, Leopords, Lions, Cheetah's, Cougars, Panthers, etc, will kill a man and even eat them without provocation. Man's vast intellect cannot stop the teeth if unarmed. That means we people have diddly over them because the only way is not God's speak. Guns and weapons didn't exist when God created animals and man.

    Genesis 1:26

    Jonah never had "dominion" over the fish he was in until he prayed to God and then God made the sea creature spit out Jonah. Which means God was holding the sea creature back from eating Jonah. Which is not the case with the list above and the many sea creatures that will eat us if we come in contact with them.

    This topic is way off topic to animals, but I will answer this one. God made woman as a compliment, not to watch over. The scripture even states such. Size, strength is not mentioned in the beginning. That seems to be only in the New Testament with the reference that women are the weaker vessel.

    There is always someone stronger than the next person, male or female. -- Bruce Lee

    (in the modern world many have weapons, so weak or not, male or female you will be overcome by some human and especially by animals)

    All of these bible passages are out of context. Each instance is recorded after it is discovered that the Israelites are breaking a covenant with YHVH and that is why each prophet states that sacrifice is meaningless and not a sweet smell to God. In a case similar to this God even states that the temple and their worship is useless. Later on God lets the temple be destroyed because of their constant disobedience over so many years as each prophet attested with their comments that God was not fulfilled by their sacrifices anymore.
