Are Carnivorous Plants Cursed by God?

Are Carnivorous Plants Cursed by God?

Ron Dudek, a creationist who writes for answersingenesis.com, claims that carnivorous plants are a reminder of how cursed our sinful world is. Genesis 1:11-13, 29-31 says that all plants were initially “good” and were put on this planet to feed humans. However, the world changed for the worse because of Adam’s sins in the Garden of Eden. God then cursed our earth and created thorny and carnivorous plants. This article specifically talks about the pitcher plant native to Australia, Cephalotus follicularis, or the Western Australian pitcher plant.
