The animals were there before you. If you wanna live in the middle of nowhere, then cool, but you gotta deal with whats out there. And an animal doesnt need a "title deed". Thats just a piece of paper that is purely for human societal purposes to show you "own" this plot of land.

I guarantee that i i have been alive longer than any animal that calls my property home. I have been here longer. I control what happens on my land. I control the habitat. i can just let everything go and become an animal sanctuary, or i can torch the place. its really up to me. Not the snake. Thats how i see it being mine.

The ability to kill it - or to have someone do it on your behalf - is the only title deed that counts, regardless of the species. It was the snake's home and now the big people with guns have come along and it's not. It's no different from smashing an insect that's in your house.

And I agree with that, but my point is, dont get all crazy and pissy when you are in a snake / jellyfish inhabited area and get attacked.

Mentally, I assume?

The recovery of a stroke victim is technically all mental, since it is an affliction of the brain. In particular, physio work and such helps restore the connections and neurons that were present before the stroke, but were damaged by it. It's hard to get it back 100% to the before-stroke state, but often you can get pretty close.

What about them?

The reason you give for having qualms about shooting animals, and why killing animals is bad is because they cannot defend themselves. So what about pacifists, who can/will not defend themselves? Are they classed with all other animals, or are they in the human class as far as this is concerned?

So does...anything you do with any other thing.

:rolleyes:

Where do snakes kill you....out on trails in hiking areas, right? WHERE THEY LIVE? Or are they breaking into your house at night and choking you? You are going into their territory.

Are jellyfish stinging you as you walk down the street? No. They sting you when you are swimming IN THE OCEAN, WHERE THEY LIVE. You are entering their home and it is purely your fault if you get stung or bitten by a snake.

So conversely, it's perfectly alright for me to shoot someone else's cat if she wanders in through our front door if it's left open?

[/QUOTE] If they have the ability but lack the sentinent desire, thats their issue. Its the fault of the individual person.

Mr. Pedantic;4963759 :rolleyes:

Am I wrong? You play catch, you improve hand eye coordination (HEC). You draw on paper, that takes HEC. Shooting a basketball, HEC. Anything you do that required you to use your hands to manipulate objects improves HEC.

[QUOTE=Mr. Pedantic;4963759] So conversely, it's perfectly alright for me to shoot someone else's cat if she wanders in through our front door if it's left open?

If you really wanted to shoot a cat. It is YOUR home and you can defend it.

But that doesnt really counterpoint what I said. A human swimming in the ocean and getting stung by a jellyfish is not the same thing as a cat wandering into your house.
