I think your logic is inherently flawed. It is our ego that allows us to think that we 'become' anything. We ARE maggot food. We are also the same stuff as diamonds. And horse shit. And therefore, the same thing as cockroaches. So, here we are, full circle. Why does a duck deserve to be spared and head lice does not?

Someday soon, you will see how close you are to an insect in God's view. We all become maggot food unless we are cremated.
