I misunderstood what this debate was about, and decided to join the debate, only to realize that i actually agree with the instigator, and i don't know how to drop out of the debate.

If you think so why don't you accept and win the debate?

"Is there a point?" creationtruth

I'm surprised at this question. Of course there is! Some people still think animals are mindless automatons. This obsolete notion must be squashed with extreme prejudice. Otherwise all sorts of animal cruelty can be rationalized. In the Bible there are many passages about how animal cruelty is to be avoided.

Proverbs 12:10 - A righteous [man] regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked [are] cruel.

Deuteronomy 25:4 - Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out [the corn].

5. Psalm 145:8-11 The Lord is full of loving-favor and pity, slow to anger and great in loving-kindness. The Lord is good to all. And His loving-kindness is over all His works. All Your works will give thanks to You, O Lord. And all those who belong to You will honor You. They will speak of the shining-greatness of Your holy nation, and talk of Your power.

That's not an argument. You've made a claim, but haven't argued why it's true. Posting a link is not an argument.
