What makes a dogs life less valuable. Just because he doesn't talk or have a job? A life is a life they are sentient creatures just like us just evolved differently. Not saying it is right or wrong but what is the difference.

Here is one same situation with the human and the dog but both are humans but one has down syndrome and the other one is normal which one do you save.

A dog is an animal. I do not value the life of a animal anywhere near that of a human being. As I said earlier, if I am starving to death, I will eat a dog. Hell, I'd eat your dog.

Are you equating a human being with downs syndrome to a dog?

FWIW, I save whichever person I have the most probability of saving first.

I was not equating and person with down syndrome to a dog that's putting words in my mouth. Just another ethical question wondering which life is more important. I would rather eat a human if I was starving I might even eat your kids.

Yes let's I don't wanna see this get shut down. I have one that I do all the time. You go to a garage sale and see something you want but don't wanna pay what they're asking so you wait until night and take it out of the garbage. Is that unethical?

To answer the question... IIIIIII don't know... I don't love the idea of waiting for someone to throw out garage sale merch before you scoop it up.

Lol.

I had never thought of that though. It is brilliant in an evil way!
