Hare: A cud chewing animal?

Post  Waqar Daniel on Mon 16 Jul 2007, 1:45 pm

I do not believe in Bible, because the Bible says that hare chews cud. The science says it does not?


The problem is not with the Bible or science, the problem is with the little knowledge we have and we just ask such questions because we have herad others say so. So it is simple to reject God's word. Is the God's word based on hare chewing cud?


This statement is made in Leviticus 11:6, where the Hebrew word literally means "raises up what has been swallowed." The rabbit does re-eat partially digested fecal pellets that come from a special pouch called the caecum. Bacteria in these pellets enrich the diet and provide nutrients to aid digestion. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica: "Some lagomorphs [rabbits and hares] are capable of re-ingesting moist and nutritionally rich fecal pellets, a practice considered comparable to cud-chewing in ruminants ...The upper tooth rows are more widely separated than the lower rows, and chewing is done with a transverse movement."
