    Topic proposal and research plan Animal rights The way we treat animals can be traced back to the ancient world. It is traced back all the way from the Bible in Genesis (1:20-28), where Adam is given "dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
