When many people hear of the Noahide Laws, many are often struck by what seems to be the odd law of not eating the flesh cut from a living animal. Many people think, who would do that? I cannot find the source but I do remembering one Rabbi explaining it. It would seem in ancient times there was no refrigeration, so to preserve meat for a long time pieces would be cut from animals to be eaten, but the animals would be left alive so the rest of its flesh would not go bad. One example given was that the animal's limbs would be taken one at a time, yes rather barbaric. Just because the Noahide Laws have a good aspect does not mean they are overall beneficial for humanity. The Noahide Laws make it clear that only Jewish understanding on the universe is correct and acceptable. Rabbi Shaul Judelman, former director of the Ecology Beit Midrash, a religious study group focused on the environment as it is treated in classical Jewish sources, suggests that only the Noahide Laws gives non-Jews the correct spiritual relationship with food over non-Jewish fast food culture (again ok, but it is the point of the matter). The rabbi also criticizes secular ecology as being inadequate to fight environmental problems and suggest these needs to be done the religious morals which the Jews dictate, the Noahide Laws!
