Because of Calvary,
Genesis 8:21 (ESV)
21 And when the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again curse[a] the ground because of man, for the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth. Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done.
“The great French entomologist Fabre, after tracing the advance of human knowledge asks: ‘To what an ideal height will this process and evolution lead mankind? To no very magnificent height, it is to be feared. We are afflicted with an indelible taint, a sort of original sin. We are made after a pattern and can do nothing to change ourselves. We are marked with the mark of the beast, the taint of the belly, the inexhaustible source of bestiality.’” [Clarence Edward Macartney, The Greatest Texts of the Bible, (Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, 1992), p. 147-148]
