>>184852376>How do you define what a soul is? How do you declare who has one and who doesn't? Why are humans so special anyway?
Real any religious book. But if you want a secular definition, humans are special due to their unmatched power and control over the world. With great power comes great responsibility, as well as privileges to match. We don't expect dogs to be held to the same moral standards as humans, because that's stupid, they're not people.
And to the concept that all life is precious, did you know the pic related shares 50% of its DNA with humans? Yet literally nobody considers its life important to protect, because that's asinine. "All life is precious" is a platitude people say to feel better, not anything meaningful.
