Mock26: Who Flipped The Crazy Switch On The Matrix: Mock26: Farking monsters. Dissection is an outdated and barbaric practice that belongs on the trash heap.

I want to hear you say that after your first life saving procedure.

That is what medical cadavers are for. And if you want to push for dissecting animals for the sake of medicine then limit it to those who have already started down the road to a career in that area. Kids in school dissecting dead animals serves no practical purpose.


It really does give a different understanding of anatomy to actually see and feel the structures. Virtual anatomy is not the same. You don't understand how tightly packed and interconnected the structures are until you see them.

If it's anything below a mammal, doesn't bother me. The mammals should be used very judiciously.

They have gotten rid of dog lab for med school physiology. That was illustrative but probably not educational enough to sacrifice a dog.

Animals are property, and many of us eat them. If we use them, for whatever purpose, it should be worth the sacrifice.

How is a kid going to know if they're interested in the subject matter if they don't get exposed?

Everything I learned by doing so many dissections was incredibly valuable to me and I couldn't have learned that on any kind of simulation. If I had children, I'd make sure they went to schools that had a science programs where they dissected in biology classes.

Carolina Biological Supply has had some...issues...over the years about where all those animals come from and how they euthanize them. Likely they get many from area shelters, but I'm betting there aren't any strays running around in that town.

I dissected dead cats in formaldehyde in catholic HS, so I am getting a kick.


I am now (just recently) dating a woman I first met in Catholic High School, twenty years after we graduated (we were in the same grade, pervs). They are really amazing in bed.

Mock26: lake_huron: It really does give a different understanding of anatomy to actually see and feel the structures. Virtual anatomy is not the same. You don't understand how tightly packed and interconnected the structures are until you see them.

Yeah, so what? For the vast majority of those in public school that knowledge serves no practical purpose. I am a web developer and before that data support for a stock exchange. Dissecting various animals in 7th grade did not help me in any way. And anything I learned about the anatomy of those animals was forgotten before I even started high school. 

Yeah, yeah, I get it, there is the whole idea about producing young adults with a well-rounded education, but knowing "how tightly packed and interconnected the structures are" serves no practical purpose for most of the students in public school. But, since you obviously disagree, tell me why for the vast majority of students that just knowing the various organs of a cat, for example, is not as good as knowing that those organs are tightly packed together. Tell me why knowing they are packed so tightly together is so damned important.


Therefore, anything you learned that did not contribute to you being a web developer was a waste and should be in nobody"s educational curriculum. I get it.

So by that measure we should get all the kids a prostitute and porn movies so they can see if they want to enter into that industry. How will they know if they aren't exposed to it?

Really? That false equivalency between one of the mainstays of biology education for hundreds of years, and porn?  That is the best argument you have against dissection?

I've been a physician for 18 years so I'm qualified to have an opinion on this. Your qualifications?


I've watched porn for a number of years.

Anyhoo, we dissected a crapload of things in my Catholic grade school and high school: fetal sharks, fetal pigs, fetal kittens, earthworms, frogs, starfish, and more. I will probably die as a direct result of being around so much formaldehyde during my tweens and teens.

I missed out of dissections. I opted out of biology in grade 9 (or was it ten). Here in Winnipeg, at the time, grades 9 through 10 were called Senior 1 - 4.
