As long as my foods and meds are safe I don't much care. Ever eaten a live chicken? Of course not. You have to kill and cook it first. I don`t even care if you stack em 10 high as long as my chicken nuggets are SAFE for me and my children. They are food not pets. (chickens, not the children)

I love animals and want what's best for them whenever possible, but there`s a reason I`m not a member of peta.

If animals weren`t getting researched on either people would be or we wouldn`t be able to test, and while it`s easy to pretend animals think and feel like humans do they don`t really. If a bunch of mice who die in the thousands constantly, are sacrificed to ease the suffering of even just a couple people that`s a fair trade off imo. Animals, have a scope of reality far, far more limited than ours with extremely shallow thoughts and emotions.

Now, in reality everything on earth is a biological machine. Saying a mouse`s suffering is worth less than a human`s is completely subjective, just like if some being far more sentient than us existed it might view our understanding of suffering as limited in scope.

Maybe they`d be right. In reality we`re the most sentient, dominant beings on earth, so for now our needs matter most.

I have never seen you post anything that suggests you have any idea of causality; many cases where you give cause to doubt, this page included.

The maker of the poster doesn't understand the meaning of causality.
