Question 8. What is the purpose of bacteria?
Answer 8. Germs, bacteria, microbes are scavengers. Rats, mice, mosquitos, bedbugs, crows, buzzards, are scavengers. All “nature” is to properly balance between dead and living matter. Anything that dies becomes food for that which lives. We have dead matter in our living bodies all the time. We have scavengers in us at all times cleaning dead matter out. We should be thankful such a principle exists. Without scavengers, we doubt if any of us could live.
