So who said humanity was the only intelligent life on the planet. Do the Japanese think they have majority rule on intelligence I think not!
“To hunt a species to extinction is not logical” Gee I wonder where I heard this before!
To disguise the action in the name of science I am suprised that many other scientists have not jumped and screamed about that one. That is unless they are all in the same boat!
You would think by now that humanity would have grown beyond killing other creatures just for the profit. There are also other reasons they say they do it but none are worth their salt in truth.
If humanity is to survive then it has to learn to treat other animals as equal. The japanese said to me once during a conference once they have lost their spirituality and wanted to rediscover it. Well the whale hunting is sure not the way to go to get it back!
There is a time to stop and that time is now. Any country that kills like this indiscriminately has a price to pay and that price will be high and the environment has a nasty way of sending back what you give off. All creatures on this planet even humans are a part of the biosphere. Mistreat it and it will come back at you big time!
