    Agna, with all due respect, I lost interest in discussing this with you when you came off with an undeserved air of intellectual superiority coupled with a judgment based off of a single interaction we had where I expressed no interest in indulging an argument far removed from the discussion at hand. Your accusation that empirical evidence means nothing to me pretty much cinched my opinion that your magnanimous view of your own intellectual prowess leaves little room for honest discussion and would result in me half-heartedly having a conversation with you bouncing around from topic to topic and me not having grown at all from the experience.

    In short, I think your most satisfying experiences are those where you inflate your own ego further and everyone just lets you do it. I am not the guy to give you that experience.

    You're simply proving my point now.

    Even after having previously encountered your arrogance during a discussion about the president of Iran and a mistranslated comment that he made wherein you haughtily dismissed any attempts at accurate translation, I was willing to ignore that previous encounter and tolerate you in the future. However, you demolished your reputation yet again when you dismissed empirical research provided in another thread (not ignoring it on the basis of its "off-topic" nature, but rather asserting that it was "opinion" and implying that it was fraudulent in nature), an example of anti-intellectualism that seemed rather low and petty to me. But I don't care about that at this point; since I make it a focus to concentrate on posts rather than posters, it's more important that you reply to the arguments presented here.

    Now, as we can see, you've again ignored the topic at hand in favor of bloviating about my demeanor. Care to try again?

    I see more yapping from you, but why do I not see an argument? I'll spell this out very carefully for you: I questioned the consistency of strong emotional objection to the violent slaughter of domesticated pets while not possessing a similar objection to the violent slaughter of various animals with a greater awareness of their existence and surroundings and a greater capacity to suffer than such pets. You asserted that this was "off-topic," while I asserted that it was a necessary juxtaposition in order to ensure ethical consistency, much as I do the same while pointing out the inconsistency of opposing abortion rights because of the killing of a human fetus that is entailed but saying nothing about the killing of various animals with greater awareness levels.

    Animals are property. As soon as he killed someones cat he damaged their property. He infringed on their rights. Killing animals to eat is OK because it is the property of the corporation or farmer etc.

    I don't see any inconsistency legally. Maybe emotionally.

    Just think about the families...

    What about a castration?
    Was he having relations with cats?
    Thank you

    Still no on-topic reply from you? You seem to be going for a record.

    That's what I mean, actually. If we were merely approaching this from a "property rights" perspective, I would of course disagree but would affirm the consistency of that perspective nonetheless, at least in this regard. But many here have expressed strong emotional reactions that would undoubtedly not exist were this a mere case of ordinary property damage.

    I wonder how high our count's getting now? Stop derailing the thread with this off-topic jabbering and either post a relevant reply or stop posting in the thread.
