As an observer, I am of the opinion that the big Gorrilla is winning here.

I'm not surprised whatsoever you think your dog is more important than someone else's child, however what you think doesn't matter one jot.
It's what is rational from an objective point of view, rather from one person's selfish perspective.
A person's life is more important than that of an animal because we are of the same species. We share similar characteristics and emotions. To think otherwise would be completely contrary to nature and totally at odds with every other lifeform. It is in an organisms interest to promote it's own existence above that of an other species for very obvious reasons, prey, predation
and reproduction.
I am very fond of my cat, however if it came down to chosing between the life of my cat and a human child, I would have to spare the child. Any decent human would.


And precisely what justification to you have for this assertion? Are you one of those deluded people who accept the Christian fallacy that humans are intrinsically different and superior to all other creatures?

Why should dogs be subject to your (or others) personality inadequacies? Rather than throw wobblers about dogs perhaps you should attend to your own personal disorders?

To pick up on another posting - why should someone else's children, whom I do not know and don't particularly care about, be more important to me than my dog?

Really?
So you don't think it's morally repugnant to put the life of your own dog above that of an other human, nay a human child?
If so, our society really is in serious trouble.

The life of any plant or animal is valuable in the scheme of things, however is the life of a slug, dog, rubber plant or monkey equal to a human life? No, it is not.

You missed the point. I'm not really that interested in the arguement, I thought it had turned into a slanging match about the precise use of English. In this respect I thought the Gorilla was in front.

Soz. Calm down.

Well sonny - should have paid more attention in school

"why should someone else's children, whom I do not know and don't particularly care about, be more important to me than my dog?"

A loaded question is a question with a false or questionable presupposition, and it is "loaded" with that presumption.

I've gotten into numerous arguments with 500 stone gorilla before.

It's his kind of selfish and intollerant attitude which is the cause of many problems in our country, nay world today.
I'd just like to ask him how he would feel if someone else decided to put the life of their pet above the life of his child? No doubt he'd soon change his tune. Of course that's the case with selfish people. I'm alright jack and everyone else can go and whistle.

I think he may be just sitting in his cage sulking and looking sullenly out at passers by - perhaps being occasionally distracted by the red backsides of the lady gorilla's and doing unmentionables to his unmentionables in full view of the public - then again I do have a vivid imagination
