I don't care what noise it makes or how much you personify something. That's not the point. The point is that you are killing wild animals when you don't have to be. Sure, if you're starving to death in a giant ship out at sea, and for some reason the only thing you can catch is a whale, go ahead and eat it, but you realize that it sounds like you're arguing that we should be able to kill anything we want because they communicate differently, and it aren't endangered. By your logic we should be able to go kill all the people in Japan simply because they talk differently and there are lots of them.LordNue said:Man, I love when people say shit like this then call others narrow minded.TheTaco007 said:Actually, I have seen whales before. I have swam out into the ocean and listened to whale song, and it was one of the greatest moments in my life. I won't waste my time trying to describe it to you, because you're obviously too narrow-minded to understand or care about these kinds of things.LordNue said:Yes because a fucking whale is such a big thing to care about. An animal that you will never truly interact with, that regardless of how smart it is will never really show it because even if they are sentient they wont ever fucking talk to the human species and evidently cant even be used for food. Get a cat and love that, at least then you have an excuse of "its my pet and my friend that's why I love it" as opposed to "I LOVE IT BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER MET IT AND I LOVE EVERRRYYY THING EXCEPT PEOPLE BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE MEAN AND KILL THINGS"TheTaco007 said:Because we aren't heartless psychopaths and we actually CARE about things.the stonker said:Are they in any risk of being stop existing?
Think about it they eat tones of food every day and they are pretty much big blubber bags.
If your arguement is "They are so cute,I wear a whale T-shirton't hurt them" then your just being irrational.
So I ask you escapists, why shouldn't we just kill the whales? More food for us and I call it survival.
P.s. I come from Iceland where whale hunting isn't so illegal and everyone frown upon it so I don't get the point.
Anyway, I don't have any strange attraction to whales, and I certainly wouldn't want one as a pet. I just think it's wrong that we are about to completely wipe another species off the face of the Earth. If you are so self-centered that you can't even see why this is wrong, then you are obviously a lost cause, and I'd like to ask you to please not contribute to the gene pool.
It was a whale making noise. Cats meow, dogs bark and whales go AAAWARRRROOOUUUUU like a bloated fat guy with gas. You personify animals too much and then refuse to accept reality in favor of your magical fantasy world, and others are the narrow-minded ones?
Also you don't understand classifications of animals too well. The species that is primarily being hunted is not endangered, the species that are endangered are protected. The genus which everyone seems to call species is in its self not endangered because you cant just go ALL WHALES ARE ENDANGERED because they all aren't.
