Chimpanzees as a species are the closest evolutionary relative to humans. They're much more intelligent than other animals such as dogs, cats, cows, eagles, etc. They've even used tools and communicated through language (ASL).

Anyways, do you think we as humans should give more consideration to chimps in terms of ethics and morality than other sentient animals such as dogs, pigs, etc.?

I'm sure most of us have some sense of right and wrong with animals. Most of us would think abusing dogs and cats is wrong and disgusting (especially cats).

Do you think chimps deserve better or more ethical treatment/consideration from us because their intelligence and close relation to humans? Or do you think there's no moral reason to treat them any different from other animals that we keep as assistants, clothing or even food?

Nope. Life is life. Suggesting that we, as animals ourselves, are better suited to decide the value of life is arrogant, IMO.

No. Humans should start treating other humans better before we can move onto chimps.

Why would you link to a thread that makes you look stupid?

It also has little to do with the OP.


I thought it was an interesting coincidence that we both felt inclined in making threads about chimpanzees so close apart. And I raise some good questions and points in that thread wtf.

Full grown chimps can rip car doors off hinges, and I think we should be able to do that too.

All life deserves equal ethical and moral consideration. Intelligence and self awareness are only a couple adaptations, they're not any "better" than photosynthesis.

The problem with the notion of just including chimpanzees is that it can be seen as arbitrary. All the great apes in general are our closest ancestors, the differences in genome are minute. But then again, the differences in mammalian genomes aren't that extreme either, so why not include mice?

And if you want to bring it to an extreme there are various parts of genomes conserved among almost all living species (certain promoter regions on DNA, I think, as one example).

companys are about profit not morals

chimps live in the forest

companys cut down trees

the world is shite

The way we treat other animals has nothing to do with their intelligence otherwise we'd be happy running experiments on people in vegetative states.


We treat them bad because they're not us.

if I want to put a saddle and a sombrero on a chimp and ride him to the corner store that's my business.

The more like us they are, the more putrid. I think we should give less moral and ethical consideration to ourselves.
