He offers two kinds of moral consideration: the well-being of the natural community and the protection of the natural individual. Whereas, other ethicists such as Tom Regan emphasizes the rights of animals and his goal of liberation of animals. This paper will focus on the Katz’s two moral considerations, the distinction between the two considerations, Regan’s view on
human animals as occupying the equal and same moral right and capacity just as human beings do. In this case, I argue that animals should not be given the cruel treatment by man as this promotes immorality in human nature. Non-human animals are subject of a life, meaning they are sentient and attentive that they exist, they have similar degrees of biological density they favour some things and dislike others, they make
1.3 Is the suffering good? Normally, suffering is considered as bad in the sense that if there is no suffering, the human life be better than the present situation. So suffering in human life, in itself gives a negative connation, because sufferings are evil in itself. And no one really and voluntarily accepts suffering.
As seen throughout recorded history, conformity has contributed greatly to the inequality and unfair treatment of our fellow human beings and the world all around. If not for conformity, our world could have been a lot different. Perhaps a world of peace, where all species of the planet can live amongst each other in harmony with nature. Perhaps a world where human individualism is not just the "norm", but the moral way of life that contributes positively, not just for all humans, but for all of nature and earth. 2081's United States, does not represent the true meaning of equality.
I, for one, believe in God and I do not visualize God as manipulative and generating mechanisms. What I visualize is that by subjecting God creative energy to what appear to be inflexible laws, God creates what appear to be mechanisms, which appear to be designed. All of these appearances exist in the sense of the stable
They should be encompassed in the moral rules, values, and concerns about fairness that apply to human beings . It is not fatal to the theory of animal rights if we adopt this more inclusive principle because it does not exclude rights grounded in interests that allow for the inclusion of
Ultimately, Driver seems to believe in all the premises of the defined Divine Command Theory. She portrays her opinion in a way that accepts claims such as how within religion, God has the ability to determine what is right and what is wrong. However, she brings to light the inconsistencies and gaps of this theory. She says that there may be reason to believe that there are outside influences of why God thinks certain things are right. She also states that God cannot make something right, such as killing a person or torturing kittens, but he does have the ability to give reason as to why other aspects of morality may be accepted.
Even despite his creation of the world if we are to agree and follow God’s guidance without question this theory shows us that we are actually instead only undermining God’s goodness. Another major issue with the Divine Command Theory is the non–moral commandments listed in the Bible. If we were to strictly abide by the theory we would have to follow every command God makes as if it were moral code. Certain commands God makes are still applicable in every day life, the 10 commandments and even others can easily be followed by a dedicated individual.
As for the other three opinions, while he agrees that human beings have providence of God but at the same time rejects them because he thinks they sometimes go too far in their claims which result in confusion and at times contradiction “I am referring to the opinions of those who abolish providence with respect to human individuals, putting the latter on a par with the individuals of the other species of the animals” (Ch.17,
Since the beginning of human existence, our world had different kinds of moral sources which were religion, family, friends. Different sources of morality provided different meanings of morality. Furthermore, morality differs from the one person to another in different circumstances. However, an idea of morality is to provide an instrument which will help the society to develop and keep the difference between human beings and animals. Following that, it would be a mistake to presume that religion and God to be the origin of moral ideas, because humans themselves invented an image of God and the rules that people should obey.
In society, people should be ethically responsible with helping people. People act ethically responsible when one is in need of assistance because they let their sympathetic feelings of compassion take over their intentions. Ethical responsibility is a duty or obligation to ensure the individual’s well-being through specific commitments; such as saving someone from a certain tragedy. One piece of evidence from the text that demonstrates the sudden acts of ethical responsibility is “Can the Law Make Us Be Decent” by Jay Sterling Silver. Though many may argue that Silver’s argument is invalid, most will agree that his argument is in fact agreeable.
King and his protesters breaking the law. King’s rebuttal is arguing there are two types of laws, just and unjust laws. Just laws were created by man and goes along with the ethical law or law of God. Whereas unjust laws contradict just laws and it degrades human character. All segregation statures are unjust because segregation degrades human traits and harms one’s inner core.
Thomas responded, “Yes, except for Job and Psalms 15. These two are real out of the entire bible and this is because it conveys the idea of God through his creation instead of his word. For Nature speaks a universal language that any man, woman, or child can read to learn about God and his salvation. This language can’t be faked or changed as it fits the human. this language eliminates the need for the missionaries, because all humans have it where every they go.”
It can cause religious protests because of the controversies. Such as, with eugenics a person can pick out what they want in a child, regardless of their genetic code. Most religious followers would believe this goes against God’s wishes. Their belief is that God is only allowed to create a person’s trait and characteristics. According to Got Questions, the bible does not support the idea behind eugenics.
