: : : : : Are humans worthier than animals?

: : : : *** No, but also, worthy of what? Surviving?

: : : Of all! I mean it general. : : : Is it less bad to torture or kill an animal instead of a human? (from a objective point of view)

: : ***There is no difference, not that either is good, but intelligence is no reason to view one as better than another.

: bzrd here: This is a case in point of what is dangerous about evolutionary theory. Invariably, science is assimilated into the social culture; Darwin's Origin of the Species was the foundation that Karl Marx used in constructing his socialist society [abyssmal failure]. Einstein's theory of relativity spawned the cultural relativity we see today. "All there is is matter" to quote Carl Sagan, has given us nothing but grief. We tell our young people they are "sophisticated apes" and then we are supprised when we don't have enough cages to put them in. Adolph Hitler had to subject his SS to a psychological process whereby the Jews were "de-humanized" so they could eliminate them. In our own society we have succeded in de-humanizing the human fetus to the extent that it is "legal" to "terminate" them, if they are percieved as an impedement to the life-style of the mother. No, Darwin's theory, [aside from being scientificly invalid] only allows us to dehumanize ourselves.

Beelzebub: I agree that Hitler "de-humanized" the Jews and Gypsies and Russians, etc. ...but what was/is the bigger crime: That he "de-humanized" humans or that we handle "inferior" creatures like animals?

PS: You demonize abortion? General?
