Animalism

By devotion to the carnal, mortal world human susceptibilities sink to the level of animalism.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 184)


It behooves him to be the cause of human welfare, but inasmuch as he glories in the savagery of animalism, it is an evidence that divine civilization has not been established in human society.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 103)


Just as man has been physically born into this world, he may be reborn from the realm and matrix of nature, for the realm of nature is a condition of animalism, darkness and defect.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 332)


There is no lower degree nor greater debasement for man than this natural condition of animalism.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 353)
