This is the perfect example of what is wrong with blitz. Dumb 10 year olds getting into a fight over a pointless thread.

The deadliest animal to humans on the planet, has always been and still remains the mosquito. 

Even in our modern age, it still kills over 30,000 human beings every year. 

 

-Yes, I know the mosquito is not a vertebrate. I’m not contradicting your post, only adding to it.

And it isn't even the mosquito that kills you, it's the microscopic viruses hitching a ride on the thing.

No humans kills humans (1 mill suicide + .5 mill murders) by far the most, followed by mosquitoes (.7 mill).

By legal definition, humans are not animals; hence, my distinction.

True, to some extent, but then I could argue that hippopotami do not actually kill people, it's the sharp tusks and 3,700 pounds per square inch of compression on the skull and spine, that kills people.

The law says all animals can be considered property.

Property is defined as something that can be owned, bought, sold or inherited.

all that means, is a bias of humanity. we have a natural way of justifying our uniqueness.

and all through history as [ho mo]sapiens we have had slaves that we considered nothing more than animals. until the laws of man made it unacceptable to have slavery.

 

sorry for the double post.

I tried to redirect this thread away from an argument, but failed. At least you're not calling each other misspelled French words. That's something, I guess.

I understand where you are coming from on that, but at some point, we have to have a consensus of definitions, guidelines, rules of law, etc., or everything just becomes anarchy and we could argue all day about what the color "Blue" really means and if it's really blue are not.

i do understand that most humans don't want to think they have more commonality to the mammalian species then to say a insect.. but facts are facts.

This is sounding like an “all thumbs are fingers, but not all fingers are thumbs” type of argument. 

 

Dont you guys have jobs or something?

Is someone dying on an operating table or some family losing their 401k in the commodities market, while you have this dumb argument?
