Why can't bacteria be glorified? Also I would think they could eat but not have to. Don't they eat from the tree of life? How that then works is any guess. As a tule of thumb though speculation is just that if it does not pertain to my personal salvation it doesn't make much difference but someday I can find out when I need to.
So why can't bacteria be glorified in the wonderful world of celestial Mormonism? Why can't they have joy in the sphere in which they live and operate?
Listen, bbwfw, your personal salvation is all about the pleasure, joy, and happiness you expect to have when you become a glorified person having a body of flesh and bones. You need to know if you're going to have an asshole or not. It's important to know this now and not just sweep it under the rug and say it doesn't pertain to my salvation. Don't just wait for "some day" to find out. You need to know now because answers to questions can be defined at anytime.
Do you really want to wait till the day of resurrection to find out? Will you reach back with your finger and see? That sounds stupid, I know, but in effect that is what you are advocating.
