The 21st-century debates about animals can be traced to the ancient world, and the idea of a divine hierarchy. In the Book of Genesis (5th or 6th century BCE), Adam P.B.U.H. is given “dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Dominion need not entail property rights, but it has been interpreted over the centuries to imply ownership. Animal were things to be possessed and used, whereas man was created in the image of God, and was superior to everything else in nature.
Animal rights, also known as animal liberation, is the idea that the most basic interests of non-human animals ought to be afforded the same moral and legal consideration as the similar interests of human beings, and that to do otherwise is a prejudice known as speciesism.
