RE: Discourse--Meaning of life 1/20/2003


Quote the note left on the discourse:
*****


you know the whole "doing homework" thing? yeah, that went well.

But in order for me or any animal to be alive, I have to
eat, which involves destroying life. That's a lot of plants
and animals over eighty years or so. If all life is equally
precious, shouldn't I starve myself?

and why do you think life is so precious?

(note: don't you dare get any ideas, and that's an order.)

::laughs:: I mean destroying life on a mass scale, not one
apple here or there. ;) Why do I think life is so precious?
OK, I pose this question... What is more important than life?

Stew on that one for awhile.

on a massive scale?" where do we draw the line? are you
saying all life is equally precious? then is it just as
acceptable to kill a human as a carrot? I still think that
by eating one places a higher value on one's own/human life.
i'm inclinded to agree with you that nothing is more
precious than life. but lots of people throughout history
have thought differently, and died for god, country,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

princple or what have you. many more have destroyed life for
the same or other, often less high-minded reasons. it's not
such an unreasonable question.
yeah, again, i don't know what I think, I'm just asking
about you.
