unimaginable suffering on the part of countless billions of individuals

I find this statement a little 'overdone'. Do bacteria suffer ? Is this suffering related to 'being eaten' by an other species? I think that evolution would take place even if every animal was a vegetarian. Every living creature dies in the end, but whether this is perceived as suffering might hold only true for 'higher' animals.

Nevertheless, a excellent article by Paula. Any comments, mr Perry, mrs Palin ....
