What's the difference between an animal and a human? Why do humans hold more value than animals? Cause the bible said so? Because God said so? Laff. (inb4 circular logic)

Of course it is wrong. And it is wrong in ANY species. If a tiger kills aother tiger for random spite it gets thrown out of the pack and/or killed. Same goes for pretty much every other animal.


No, tigers don't travel in packs. Hell, a lot of species kill their own kind. And some species like the praying mantis and black widow spider even eat their mate after sex.



Cannabilism, however, I suppose in your mind could be correct.

Homicide isn't wrong, neither is killing a fly, pig, cow, or w/e, they all live they all die, if we don't kill 'em something else will, it's the line of life, it starts at one point ends at another. The only reason we see homicide as wrong is because its our own kind, then again there are people who don't believe in killing animals so they're vegetarians, but they kill plants, we can't survive without the murder of something else, or just at least the death of it, it is perfectly fine to kill anything, we just make up rules for it though.

god and the bible have nothing to do with it.

Human beings are just the more superior race on earth, and so as survival we kill and eat animals, just as they do.
its in our blood.
our ancestors killed to eat, and so shall we.

all those poor, cold cave men back in the day, they killed mammoths for fur and meat to survive, essentially we do the same thing. except not mammoths.

even so, i see where you're coming from.
I love animals and i used to hate the fact that people hunted and all that jazz.
i used to be vegetarian and blah blah blah...
but i had a talk with my friend one time, and he said that its just the cycle of life.
you've seen diagrams in school text books of like the arrow pointing from a mouse to a snake, and a snake to an eagle etc... human beings are just at the top of all of that, just never put on the diagram.

Honestly, it also seems that you just don't like the answers you are getting, so you are going to argue.

One of the many controversies of life. In my opinion, it really depends on the situation. If someone commits murder for personal gains, I do not think this is acceptable as it is morally wrong not to mention a horrendous crime. Although killing someone in self defence, that can be considered as acceptable because you just do it on instinct.

Do I oppose to killing animals and plants? No. The fact that we need them in order to survive whether it is through hunting for food or vivisection. You cannot deny that the killing of animals/ plants has helped cured many people. Although I do believe killing animals for fun, such as a hunting sport is wrong though.

of course it is! esp. when it is purposely done!

legal def. of homicide:
The killing of one human being by the act or omission of another. The term applies to all such killings, whether criminal or not. Homicide is considered noncriminal in a number of situations, including deaths as the result of war and putting someone to death by the valid sentence of a court. Killing may also be legally justified or excused, as it is in cases of self-defense or when someone is killed by another person who is attempting to prevent a violent felony. Criminal homicide occurs when a person purposely, knowingly, recklessly or negligently causes the death of another. Murder and manslaughter are both examples of criminal homicide.

Liberty and freedom from pain or death from another. When you entered society you entered a social contract to not kill another human being and in turn they will not kill you. If you break this agreement then there are laws in place in society to see that you are punished accordingly for breaking the social contract. Either in jail time or execution. If the punishment does not fit the crime even when one is deemed guilty is when i personally consider it a embarrassment to the justice system...which unfortunately happens quite often when one is rich.

Well, altho I'm a vegetarian, what justifies killing plants and animals is we need their products for survival, or for personal benefit. For the most part, humanity has gained something.

There is no gain from killing another person. Unless it is for self defense, you are only causing suffering[
/u]. Nothing else.

Murder is wrong.
Justifiable-homicide in the act of self-defense is fine.

...sigh... homicide is wrong under the basis that we would be in a hellhole if we did not honor life.

For all of you who say "Oh! Let's have openly kill people!" obviously have not experienced loss of any sort.
Why would you openly kill people? Do they deserve it and why? Imagine that you were in the same exact position as they were. You got on the wrong side of someone and then suddenly you're put at gunpoint. At that point you would claim that the world is unfair and cry like a child, but if you were the one with the gun, you would savor the power simply because you don't know any better. Here's another question for those who want homicide to occur - Have you ever killed someone? You probably haven't, but even the act of just meeting people who have can explain the horror, the pain, and the complete mental breakdown of the first kill. There is no glory in killing someone once you realize one thing: Empathy. We are all human beings and we are all connected. Those who have shut off their empathy connections are nothing more than mere barbaric idiots.

For those who say "Killing is bad" also have not experienced any loss since your argument is completely based around either religion or the way you were raised. You are being ignorant. There are times when murder is a necessity in order to control the situation. War is an evil necessity just as capital punishment.

As for the act of self-defense, killing should not be something you think of immediately. It should always be a last ditch effort when all other channels of subduing the enemy are gone. If the opponent has a knife and you have a firearm, you always aim to disable him. Fire at his arm or leg, not head or chest. Same with opponents with firearms, you aim at arm or leg. Even if you don't have a weapon, you only disable the person.

In my opinion, whether or not homicide is wrong or not entirely deprives from the situation.

Humans are animals just like cattle or chickens. I don't care what any human says. I don't care if they say we are more important because of our intelligence. We are all living beings. Killing an animal is exactly like killing another human (i kill bugs and stuff, but i dont really care lol, im not a crazed animal protector but i do hate animal abuse but i love eating meat) when you get down to it. Animals only kill to survive. Humans should only kill to survive also. The ones who go to war and cause war, are in my opinion, the most idiotic, repulsive, unintelligent, pieces of **** on this Earth. I wish human's were smart. If you think about it, the fact that we are smart is our downfall.
