yes i see your point - but that "killing" is for food, be it animal or man (man of course is also an animal).Logik wrote: ↑Sun Apr 14, 2019 8:51 amThe point is that we are now devolving into all the human nuances: language, morality and intent.
Killing is amoral. It's neither right nor wrong. It describes the mechanics/actions of ending a life. Any life. Hunters kill animals. Predators kill prey.
I don't think "Murder" is the same as "kiling for food". I think "muder" is killing one of your "own" (man vs man/lion vs lion/etc..........).
nor do i think "murder" is immoral by default - man (and some/most animals) have the nature when environment presents - to murder.
and so think there is a reason, via we are all (all - as in man and animals) - a product of evolution (survival) - and so "War" and Murder must have a good reason to exist within us since we are product of evolutionary survival.
speak for yourself, i have reservations toward killing folks (and even animals - since i do not need to eat them - others kill them for me to buy their body parts at the grocery store), and toward carrying a gun - being a depresant i'd be a fool to have a gun lying around.Logik wrote: ↑Sun Apr 14, 2019 8:51 am Person A killed person B. That's a factual statement. I also doesn't tell us whether the actions of person A were moral or immoral.
This nuance is often lost on people, and I often get puzzling looks when I admit that I have no reservations killing another human.
If I did have reservations I wouldn't carry a gun.
well yes of course.
though i doubt i'd be "comfortable" killing another man, even if justified - I'd replay the event in my mind a million times questioning if i did not allow the perp a chance to surender/etc.
you think so? i never though of them the same in any way.
but that just me, you think most folks lump the two into one thing?
oh wow! really, i like more about this - what they say etc, if you are willing. i find that mentality odd myself, but understanding it would be welcomed.
thanks for reply!
