    Right. The ethical ones won't eat it.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I say eat whatever you want, kill what ever you want. If the species is really important than its value alive will allow it to survive, if it is useless it will die. Darwinism is a fact of life, protecting animals from survival of the fittest is rather absurd.

    And just what does Darwinism have to do with man hunting with weapons?

    You know, humans can kill every animal on this planet if they wanted to.

    darwinism applies to only killing what is needed for survival, not profit

    1. Weapons are part of evolution.
    2. Just because it isnt fair doesnt make it unnatural. For example is it a fair match between a shark and a seal?

    To your other point, man can kill every animal but he wont. Why you ask?
    Simple if the animal (whale) has a benefit to man and can make him money, then they will be saved through market economics. If the animal is useless then why would we hunt it?

    No it does not. Animals kill for enjoyment and power all the time not for food only. Look at how Lions fights over land, Chimps brawl and kill for supremacy or cause they are bored and want to rip a weak chimps cock off.

    Darwanism means the strong will survive and the weak will die out.

    thats my point, territorial and dominance disputes are natural, the systematic destruction of another species is not, the only animal that compare to humans is locusts

    Systematic destruction of other species happens all the time, through enviromental changes, or the dominance of a Predator. We are the dominant predetor and yes certain animals will go exctinct, but others will take their place. Thats how it works.

    Being a diver I am very biased on this one. I would not eat whale or any other higher animal. Now I do believe we have dominion over them, but a society can be judged by how it treats it's animals.

    Nothing wrong with compassion for our animal friends.

    see the thing is, nature had millions of years to place things in biological niches before humanity evolved enough intelligence to bugger things up, in any given ecosystem, the primary food source is more numerous than the secondary consumers, whom are more numerous than the tertiary consumers, and this leads to a balance, enviromental changes unbalance this, but this is random destruction, not systematic, it is only since humanity has developed a need to shape the enviroment to fit themselves that extinction of a particular niche in a particular way has occured, and in an ecosystem free of feral influences, you lose a particular niche animal in a short amount of time, and it will kill off the entire ecosystem.
