I have to write an argument on why all animals should die. It doesn't have to be entirely serious, it just has to have 4 or 5 good points.

I will point out this is completely against what I believe. I am vegetarian so don't have a go at me.

Just wondering what the pit thinks.

I'm thinking of throwing in some pointless statistics such as "bear attacks have doubled in the past year" when it only means 2 people were killed compared to one or something. (not a real statistic, just an example) Any other ideas?

Edit: As in why should we kill off the animal kingdom. Pit monkeys, plants and humans don't count.

Do bacteria count as animals? What about plants?

What about us?

all animals should die because they are going to die anyways, might as well get it out of the way
Banquo?

They should die so we can all be vegetarians. And the best way to kill all the animals is to EAT THEM!

Therefore. If You want to be a vegetarian, eat all animals.
#8
As in, kill off the entire animal kingdom.

Not just let them die naturally and continue breeding etc.

I thought it was mammals..

But no, humans and plants are not included.

I don't get it. Do you mean why shouldn't everything be immortal or why should we kill everything?

Why should we kill everything.

And before anyone asks, pit monkeys don't count as animals.

If that happened, we'd all die very, very quickly. Why are you even attempting to argue something so stupid?

You could make a better case for the Earth being flat than this stupid proposal.

Seriously. A bunch of plants would die out without pollinators for one thing.

If you wanted to be real dark you could argue that life is meaningless so everything may as well be dead.

mammals are animals.

edit: on topic, I can think of absolutely no points to raise that aren't completely fucking pointless. The teacher that assigned you this wants you to fail.

Gahhh. You get what I mean.

If you were talking about a person you wouldn't refer to them as an animal, unless you intend to insult them.

And ahh, even if the ideas are complete pointless, they will probably help me. I can only think of bringing up stuff about cows and greenhouse gases, animals killing people and whatnot.

According to internet an animal is "A living organism characterized by voluntary movement"
Although sponges are animals and I'm not sure if they move or not...

oh, i know, I wasn't the one that raised that point, I was just clarifying that for ya. I agree that in normal conversation animals and humans are two different things, unless you're an idiot trying to look smart.

According to Wiki "Although sponges are fundamentally sessile animals, some marine and freshwater species can move across the bottom at speeds of 1–4 millimetres (0.039–0.16 in) per day, as a result of amoeba-like movements of pinacocytes and other cells."
#26
Lol, stop arguing what an animal is. =\

We all know what I am refering to, so does anyone have any actual ideas on why they should be killed off?
#27
You could argue something to the effect of "in the end, it's the same result whether we kill them or if we let them die"

There's a word for thinking like that... I really can't remember it...

Really the only difference is that when we do it, they're being used as sustenance.

It's an assignment to test out the student's ability to backup any kind of point in an argument and to be persuasive about it. In a way it's just to see how qualified they are in this.

some points -
  • eliminate attacks by animals (africanized bees)
  • reduce allergies (cats/dogs)
  • eliminate/control some diseases (west nile virus by mosquitoes)
  • protect crops (locust; frogs in australia)
  • eliminate car accidents involving animals (moose in Canada)


See ppl... it's not that hard.

btw: i love animals, and though this assignment looks stupid, it's actually got a point.

No animals, everyone's vegetarian, your side wins
No animals, no-one can get fat as easily
We're all going to get killed by global warming or some other bollocks, so why not kill them for a bit of fun
No more lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) to attack us while we sleep

Irrelevant of how much I disagree with what I have to argue, it's not really the point of writing it.

I couldn't exactly call my teacher cool. However I'm not that against the assigment. I love arguing stupid ideas, it's much more entertaining than trying to argue ideas with alot of obvious points.
