A friend sent me this. He is not a Christian and he says he's not a Jew, but he uses the King James Bible and is quite religious. I was not surprised it came from Prager U, he makes some very divisive and extreme videos. Thoughts???
I don't know, what breed is the dog? Some of those can be, 'worth' quite a lot. Really? They'd probably be trying to save each other anyway, so I'd toss a rope to the human and they could get the dog out too. I have issues with the words worth and value when applied to living things; I cannot connect them. I see worth and value as something inanimate objects have. Life is life, none more so than other, just different forms.
Sorry, when you've said the man is very religious, It was enough for me not to watch it. I have found it to be pointless to discuss religion with people who are deaf and blind. Good old H.L Mencken, (1880 - 1956), had said it well, "morality is doing right, no matter what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right"....There is a remote possibility that religion may not have come about with the idea of controlling those who adhere to it, but in very short time it became apparent that it is an excellent tool to do just that.
As for the question, "Are humans more valuable than animals ?" Why just animals and not every other organism?... Life is precious for all living things and if all the living things could be asked the same question and could understand it, the answer would be that each one is more valuable than anybody else. But because we humans are arrogant, on top of the food chain and have the capability of thought, we think we are more valuable.
