Non-humans animals are really cool. We should treat them with respect. If we don't we are devaluing life. Once we devalue non-human animals, its easier to devalue humans.



How do you define treating them with respect? Do you mean tearing them to shreds and feasting on their flesh like other animals or?

It looks like this debate might be one of the three needed for Stupidade to be able to vote, so i won't be overly harsh. But still, this is a pretty dumb argument. To quote Loki from the Avengers, "does an ant have any quarrel with the boot?" didn't think so. people are at the top of the food chain because we have something no other mammal, living or dead, posses: intelligence. People are far Superior to animals because we are an advanced, sophisticated race. we can think, we can create, destroy, make art, and learn. True, animals can learn,(by which i mean trained), but they are, by nature, savages. They can't create society, language, art, tools, automobiles, televisions, cooked food...... The list goes on and on. Giving human rights to savage or trained animals would actually lesson how valuable human rights are because it would no longer be special to just humans. Just saying.

The use of anti-biotics is helping to create new drug-resistant superbugs, which is expected to cause more human deaths than cancer in the future. Therefore animals should not be given anti-biotics!
