But is it right to take perfectly healthy animals and harm them to find cures for human illnesses, many of which we bring on ourselves by poisoning the environment, eating the wrong kinds of foods, and by not adopting a healthy active life-style? Do people have the right to do what ever they like to perfectly healthy animals? Do we have the right to continue doing experiments over and over again in a needless repetition and a waste of animals if no new information is going to be gained. Animals suffer unnecessarily and their lives are pointlessly wasted. If the issue were simple, animal experimentation might never have become so controversial.
“Cloning is great if God made the original then making copies should be fine” (Doug Coupland).But many religious don't consider cloning just fine like Doug those. Cloning is the act of making a person thought genetic engineered instead of a natural process. The debate whether scientists are “playing God” has probably never been more real than now. Scientist advances have shaken religious beliefs to their roots repeatedly through the ages, but as much as religious leaders want to push scientists to think more about the morality of their work, scientists are pushing religious leaders back to the basic tenets of their faiths. Religion beliefs are the main reason for their opposition against cloning .
Mustapha Mond is the most powerful character in Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Mond keeps scientific and historic documents from reaching the people. Mond believes that science, religion, and art threaten Brave New World if let out, but religion would be bane of Brave New World. The moral dilemma of monogamy would be the bane of Brave New World itself. If the people of Brave New World found out about religion the people would learn the moral dilemma of “every one belongs to everyone else”(Huxley 31).
In a twisted sense, Satan is necessary in our lives to tempt us. Without his temptation, there would be no choice but to follow the glory of God. No living person can live a perfect life like Christ did. This means that man had a definite destination for them, and it wasn’t Heaven. Heaven is perfect and cannot be tainted by people who are born sinners.
in which he makes an interesting and well crafted argument supporting the Korean practice. In this article, Saletan effectively deconstructs the opposing arguments and makes the strong counter-point on logical, moral, and emotional grounds, that the movement to outlaw dog meat in South Korea has an undercurrent of cultural arrogance and even racism. The strongest argument against the dog meat industry centers on the treatment of the dogs that are often killed by ?beating, strangling, [and] boiling? instead of more humane methods such as electrocution. Unnecessary cruelty against animals is universally considered wrong, and is in many cases illegal, and that is what makes this argument effective.
His theodicy creates God as a good force, not an evil one, but the way he writes Paradise Lost and the fall of mankind suggests that either Milton did not think God was all that powerful or turned his cheek when evil plotted against Him.God is trusted by humans in this epic poem because Milton writes that Adam and Eve pray often and trust all God has done for them. But once again, the trust was broken when Eve listened to what the serpent had to say about God deceiving the humans by telling them He didn’t want them eating the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge when He really did want them to to prove their independence. All at the same time God is feared, not so much by Satan or the other fallen angels, but He is feared by new race He has created. Adam and Eve fear God because of the threat of death as a consequence for eating the forbidden fruit. Once each of them take a bite from the apple of the Tree of Knowledge they begin to argue about whose fault it was, knowing that God knows what they have done and fearing Him because of what they think is going to happen to them.
All humans are born sinners, but I believe that you have the power to control your sin. In conclusion, I think that Puritanism was a religion that was almost impossible for human beings to live by. They had no way of knowing whether they were going to be condemned or redeemed when they were laid to rest. Not knowing would make your life miserable and make you not want to believe. With Christianity you are guaranteed a place in Heaven as long as you commit and accept God as your Savior and Lord.
He put into my perspective some of the truths of ethically treated animals and how most people believe it is for our own good to use animals to our advantage. I never really pondered the fact that animals, whether they are treated ethically or not, end up getting slaughtered. I truly believe that Steiner provides a strong argument, but I am not in complete agreeance. Ethical treatment of animals is something that I think should always be reinforced, but Steiner takes being vegan to the extreme by saying, “you just haven’t really lived until you’ve tried to function as a strict vegan in a meat-crazed society,” (197) and comparing the slaughter of animals to an internment camp that was part of a mass genocide. Comparing the slaughtering of animals to a mass genocide is more ridiculous than the number of animals killed in a year for human consumption.
First and foremost can we conclude that Costello protests too much? As a result of my understanding of the text, it would be plausible to propose that Costello is self aware. Costello anticipates her most hostile critic, acknowledging “how talk of this kind polarizes people & cheap point scoring only makes it worse” (Coetzee 22). The conversation which she refers to is a correlation between the way her fellow human beings treat animals and the way in which the Third Reich treated Jews. “By treating fellow human beings – beings created in the image of God, like beasts” (she says of the Nazis).
He believes that our passions make up who we are and they are a sign of how deeply we feel our emotions. He believes that “we are never satisfied merely to state the fact that we feel this way” (723). As humans we feel that we must express the degree’s to which we feel our emotions/passions through our words, expressions, and movements. However, our passions can also cause us to fall “with the weight of stupidity” (Nietzsche 717) and they need to be carefully balanced lest they control us. Morality and religion have been the answer for controlling our passions for centuries yet Nietzsche believes that morality and religion are like the unadmired “dentists who “pluck out” teeth so they will not hurt anymore” (717).
