I thought that the egregiousness of this comparison, and the concept that humans are more important than other animals was self evident. Which is more important? The Long Explanation Before I start, I should say that this is not going to be a critique of vegetarianism.
There are many arguments for and against vegetarianism, I am simply going to concentrate on the importance of humans compared to other animals. I know that in the context of the entire universe, pretty much all life is worthless.
We are all organisms on a little planet that orbits a bog standard star set in one of many billions of galaxies.
One day our sun will expand and that will be the end of us. And so I come to my first point: The power to visualize things that we do not directly experience is what caused humans to flourish in the first place. It is an incredible ability in the animal kingdom and it leads me to my second point, which is cognition.
We humans, as well as possessing imaginations, are also self aware. We have the ability to question our own existence, and we have concepts such as ethics and compassion. My third point is potential. When a human is born, it has the potential to go on and do so much more than any other animal can.
So in summary, humans are more important than animals because of traits such as imagination, intelligence and technology. The Short Explanation We went to the fucking moon. Hayley Stevens has since written about this post on her blog by changing the contents of a previous post.Some have also suggested that Namibia has no place in the list.
The ILGA report bases its assertion that it criminalises homosexual acts on Dutch common law, but the Namibian constitution prohibits discrimination, and takes precedence over Dutch common law. I have two conflicting perspectives on the debate.
On an intellectual level I find it hard to argue that the pain of A and B if subjectively equivalent (as I assume pain felt by a child and pain felt by a kitten might be) can be justified away by any other concern than that directly relating to the moment of pain such as intensity and duration.
By the early 19th century, the existence of extinction had been accepted by most scientists, and over the next years it gradually became a public concern, as it became clear that human beings. Whether or not these extinctions were actually linked with the arrival of human beings remains a subject of debate.
Some scientists believe that changing climatic conditions were to blame. Others believe a combination of factors, possibly including human intervention, led to the extinction of these animals.
Species extinction is a great moral wrong other species have value in themselves and a right to continued existence. Human beings should preserve them whether or not it is convenient or economically beneficial for people.[divider] protecting nature can also support other social/economic goals.
To turn this into a debate over morality is. It can be the first species of the Homo genus to have appeared. There is a vivid debate whether H. erectus used fire or not.
