comment What does 'Dominon' mean in Genesis?
@Kazark I don't read a lot of religious blogs, so I have no idea what the common interpretations are among bloggers. I was referring to the common interpretations among my family members, people I've known at schools and at workplaces, people at my church, people at past churches I've attended, any any other people I've known in person.

comment What does 'Dominon' mean in Genesis?
@Kazark I don't know about the OP, but personally, I have known literally hundreds of people who claim, some of them quite vocally, that it means "plunder and subjugate" (not even "make use of"). By comparison, I know maybe a dozen people (including myself) who are even open to any sort of "care for" interpretation. It may be a national/regional thing, but in my experience, at least in the USA midwest, "plunder and subjugate" is by far the most common interpretation.
