Re: ~ Where Are You Philosophically? Left Brain/Right Brain Weather ~

. You just hide behind a phony moniker & throw stones. Feel like I would actually like you if we ever met. You just seem like you have intellectually backed yourself up into a corner , in a completely glass room. You seem like there is no wiggle room for you...and it is glaringly apparent. Uncomfort...

Re: ~ Where Are You Philosophically? Left Brain/Right Brain Weather ~

. I appreciate & completely accept the names that you are using to describe me within your posts upon my threads. Don't know what significance they hold for you but I gotta say, overall I feel like naming or the approach that you are using diminishes you overall within this space. I've looked at you...

Re: ~ Animals Deserve to Have Rights ~

. What you have stated cannot be denied. There does seem to be a hierarchy of value. Don't know how you would care to define that but what you are saying is true. I entertain the thought of extending empathy towards other living things. Especially fellow mammals. Interesting to note that when differ...

Re: ~ Animals Deserve to Have Rights ~

. Not sure you understood my original post. My OP has everything to do with human behavior. Our behavior towards what we consider to be lesser animals. Lesser than ourselves, whether that be humans or other living species. * Re-read my original post & I think you will be pleasantly rewarded! Good to...

Re: ~ Animals Deserve to Have Rights ~

. In reply to the first poster, who asked me about the rats and mice in my home. Of course I would mitigate them. And your point is very well taken.

. We shouldn't have the right to kill them. We shouldn't have the right to experiment upon them. We shouldn't have the right to cage them nor destroy their natural habitat... Or declare war upon them. We shouldn't eat them. ...what the hell are we? Where is the humanity in being human? .
