We as a society will not respect the rights of animals because we don't recognize human rights properly yet.

True. But what are animal rights? Aren't animal rights in the wild simply the way animals instinctively act under whatever circumstances they find themselves in, according to their nature? And in captivity, aren't animal rights completely subservient to their owners' authority in every way?

A merciful owner has mercy on his animals, and even love for them. If he eats them, he kills them swiftly so that they feel little pain.

If a society restricts its members from eating animals or treating their animal property how they want, it is a society of slavery among people. In a land of freedom, people have right to do with their animal property and other property as they desire. It is when people do NOT have freedom to do with their animal property what they want, that people are like animals before their society or government.

Since society and government are made up of people, what gives them the right to decide how other people should treat their own property?

That's exactly what I go by. Kill animals swiftly so you can eat them.

Humans are not animals. When you look in Genesis, you find that God created the animals, but that He made man in His own image, including breathing the breath of life into man. Man and animals, though similar in may ways so that they can inhabit the same planet, are different.

Was I really supposed to answer?

People are people a.k.a. human beings. They are greater than the animals, not as powerful as the angels, creatures that God made, and creatures, the only kind of which God came to as one of... in His form as Jesus, the Christ.

Biologically, an animal is defined as an organism with animal cells. Like humans.

Look. The only people who can't think are the ones who have been damaged somehow, either in birth defects, or by some physical damage from an accident. The thinking of all humans is far above the animals, if indeed the animals really think at all.

People are not animals, and animals are not people. They share some similarities. But they are not of the same classification.

Yes! And when you think of all the greater things that people can do - greater than the simple ones mentioned - animals fall far behind. The fact is that mankind is like gods with regard to the animals.

Personally, I don't believe that they are in the same way that we are aware of each other. Science hasn't gone very far along these lines... deep awareness.

Obviously they are aware of us to some extent. But it might simply be the same way that a robot might be aware of things, because it has been built to receive stimuli in certain ways and programmed to act on it in certain other ways.
