This goes hand in hand with my "where do we go when we die" blog.
I don't believe that human life is any more sacred then any other being's life on this planet.
Humans have come to a point where we feel that we are dominant of everything and that we are owed more out of life then any other living being.
this is based on greed and fear. It is a bi-product of cognitive ideas.
we feel that we are more sacred or worth more because of the fact that we have different thought patterns then most other living creatures.
it's only relative to the person doing the thinking.
Ps...this is one very good reason why man worships a "higher being".
