rprygro: But back to the main point, no one has "proved" morality is relative, and of course people are sticking to their moral convictions. Those are probably some of the deepest convictions people have.


Oh! One last thing. The fact that what is "right" and "wrong" changes depending on who you ask is a good argument for subjective morality. It sounds, in that phrasing, like you're trying to argue for a universal, unchanging, constant example of morality. If that is the case, then prove it.

rprygro: R.A.Danny: RexTalionis: Pigs are smart animals (smarter than a dog, anyway) with real personalities. I don't see how one can logically support eating pork and be against eating a dog.

Why does logic need to be part of this? Logically we shouldn't put emotion into what we eat, yet that is what PETA does on a daily basis. I adore dogs, I don't care about pigs. 100% emotional.

The objection to eating meat is often a moral one. People may feel emotionally about it, but that is not the basis for the judgment. Logic should absolutely be a part of rational decisions.


Why? Do people need to eat dog? Saying that logic must be part of the decision is akin to forcing dog,eat on them.

As for the thread...dogs are domesticated. That's why we don't eat them.

o.O

Nope, nothing menu-worthy there.

Dog meat is greasy and "weak".

Cook it with pickrel livers (walleye to Americans) in order to give it a vitamin boast.

I prefer a nice muskrat over an open fire myself.

People are slipping!

This thread was BEGGING for a Pulp Fiction troll in the first few posts... Probably would have gotten a lot of bites!

I'm just posting this to say 'hello' to those of you who compulsively read the last post, like I do.

Hello! I hope your day is going well. Either way, I offer you hugs.

~hugs~

Thank you for that.

Virtual hugs to you in return (and you. And you. And you back there trying to blend in with the shadows. And all you up there in the nosebleed section. And especially to you. Yes, you. You know who you are.)

/inveterate reader of all the credits after the movie ends since childhood.
//with the modern-day inclusions of post-credits stingers movies I have a more compelling reason to give those who ask me for one other than "well, all of those people worked hard to bring me this film (for good or bad) so it seems rude not to give them the time to acknowledge their names. And besides it's fun to learn the job titles on film sets. What is a "honeywagon driver" anyway? Wouldn't you like to be a "bee wrangler? Or John Lithgow's "Dialect Coach" on "Buckaroo Banzai...?""

Pandora's Litterbox: Thank you for that.

Virtual hugs to you in return


You're very welcome! And thank you.

Also, I randomly bought "Buckaroo Banza..." a couple months ago, but haven't watched it yet.
