Yea I know, I was replying to yorda too, but your post went through first.
Why ? Because life is to beautiful to destroy, it's a wonder of nature. You are life as well so why would you deceive your own heritage ?
A robot isn't life, is it...
Yes, all life.
Yes, I care about ants or any other life form. And so should you.
We should respect the life that nature created because it is natures creation, which was NOT made for us. So we have no business destroying it.
If you had to kill an ant to save a spider, would you?
What about several ants (they're attacking the spider, maybe)?
No, I wouldn't. But I would step aside to avoid stepping on a snail for example.
Only if the ant was in my pants.

If you had to step aside to avoid stepping on a snail but there's only one other place to step and that's on a slug... would you?
As a moral pointer, one owns it's own house and the other doesn't.
That's not much of a choice, is it ?
Yeah, I know. Life sucks, doesn't it? So choose.
Why? What have you got against homeless drifters?
The choice would be arbitrary and quite besides the point.
But if you insist, I'll choose to step on the snail and make sure it's dead.
so 90% of all humans are murderers? why don't we send them to prison then, like all other murderers?
because killing animals for food is not murder, and the reason it's not murder is because animals have less value than humans.
this is all god's fault though. if he hadn't created animals we wouldn't have needed to kill them.
I think it would be wise for me not to respond to this..
don't blame me if you don't like my posts, i hate them too, but it's not my fault that god had no choice but to create the eternal me to say stupid things. all i wanted was to stay in my nothing, but it didn't exist so i have no choice but you might as well blame me because you didn't have a choice either. if he hadn't created ants no one would have to step on them.
You DON'T have to step on them on purpose !
And animals DO NOT have less value than humans ! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
you have to step on them by mistake and animals have less value because they have less consciousness. if they don't have less value why don't we treat them like humans? why do we eat them?
i still don't understand why you don't understand that you want to die. if you were dead you wouldn't have needed to read these words that makes you angry. and if i was dead i wouldn't have needed to write them.
death is heaven, so it doesn't matter if we kill. but no matter how much we kill we still can't die... we still can't go to heaven, so we might as well do nothing, because we can never become nothing. nothing matters so everything might as well matter
they do have less value. If I had a choice who to save...bunch of ants burning within a house on fire...or my lil human friend...I would choose my lil human friend. Her hair is silk, I love to smell it.
