We're all murderers. We've all killed at least one spider or slug, right? And most of us eat meat regularly. Why do humans think they're so superior?

Animals are just as precious as humans, aren't they?

  • I said right because I believe in some ways we all serve our purpose on earth and in that respect we're equal and I love animals because I feel there's wayy much more to them than science has proven - because we can't interact with them on the same platform it's difficult to know the full extent of the animal mentality, psychology and emotions.

    However humans are the highest ranked animals simply because we're the most physically, emotional, psychologically and socially developed animals.

    An example is that some animals have to hunt and kill to feed themselves - they have no choice it's all their capable of in order to survive. We as humans, however, have choices, many of them too; so we can either choose to hunt and kill or just grab an apple off the tree and eat that. Humans are capable of surviving on a variety of things; when as animals are bound by their nature, like carnivores have to eat meat, herbivores have to eat veg, and humans can eat either or both.

  • We are not superior in a moral sense but we are at the top of the food chain. Creatures at the top of the food chain kill other creature lower down on the food chain. That's not immoral because morality is a manmade concept. Animals eating and killing other animals (or plants, which are even further down) is just a natural thing.

  • I think we are all murderers in that case that given the right circumstance, each and everyone one of us is capable of killing another human being. While I think people can act kinda superior, I also think people forget the value of human lives at times. Very many who would care a lot more about an animal, cat, dog etc that died than anyone they didn't know did.

  • Murder is the killing of one's own species. It turns out "Cruelty to Animals" covers killing animals. No idea why that would be.

  • I don't believe in a using animals, but they kill each other all the time. So at worst we're just being natural.

    What makes us superior is dominating the planet, harnessing nature, and our continued accelerated advancement.

  • Did you seriously just type that into a computer? As in, you can comprehend language and complex ideas like electromagnetism and the internet AKA things no other creature on Earth can do? Name one other species on the planet that has achieved what humans have in the relatively brief time we've been here. I'll wait.

    A bit overdone i think.

  • Killing a member of your own species (especially when that species has a higher capacity to understand the world around them, form relationships, etc.) is far worse than killing an animal. Don't be ridiculous. I even say this as an animal lover.

    or the mold on the bread you threw away to go to the incinerator?

    • @jjesica346 irrelevant, it is still a form of life that you brutally murder. i thought all life was precious to animal lovers, but clearly they're just hypocrites.

  • Humans are superior, because we are smarter. If you don't take intelligence into account and base it just on the fact that we're all living creatures then plants, fungi and germs would be just as precious as humans

    • Doubt it baby, upon your sense of logic, it would be a ok if aliens decided to boil/fry our ass up whenever they felt the need! Obviously they are way smarter than us if they can travel to earth but we can only visit the moon.

    • Firstly I never said it's ok to murder animals, just that we are superior. Secondly we do actually have the technology for interstellar travel already, just it's worth waiting till we can do it faster. Thirdly even if we didn't have the technology we are smart enough just haven't done it yet. And lastly, yeah if they were smarter I guess they would be superior to us

  • I tried this defense during my murder trial. Didn't work out.

  • Why did you choose to remain anonymous, asker?
    I would have been a followers of yours, otherwise.

    Humans feel superiorior for hundreds of reasons the most intelligent of them have put in thousands of books and reasonings.
    In fact, the only true reasons they have is that their brain developed much more, making them powerful.
    Despite what they say and believe, they rate anything according to power.
    Many other species I value above them.

    • Honey.. after this I'm done talking to you. In mass production (where the money is) they are confined, yes to different degrees, are you still following? Good, yay! Now trillions of animals suffer due to this greed, so know the count would be less than 1% if people kept out of it! Dont bother me again, I won't respond!

    • @jjesica346 so? That's one situation. Again, not every animal eaten is kept in those conditions. You make points, i point out it's not the case, and you still drivel on, so yes I think it is best if you stop. Well done, first thing you've done right so far.
