why is inflicting pain on non-human animals unethical?
Tynie Hawk I agree with you that We are natural and we naturally create. But hasn't some of that creation interfered with the environment around us, and some of that creating doesn't break down. This buildup inhibits natural process of life.

i think that you are being pessimistic not realistic. What your saying is that everyone -not just a few- pursue "happiness" at the expense of others (not very realistic). I am saying that as a whole man can overcome corruption and greed. Peoples insecurity with their current status or position is not a point of happiness. And if you believe that you never reach happiness, because you are always chasing it, then that is a sad life. Your so called realistic statements are dis proven by the existence of charities, non profits, and many other selfless actions that people do all the time. And once again distinguishing is clearly different from racism, and your in groups and out groups are based on your assumption that we need to have in groups and out groups to survive. And also the assumption that all bias will lead to conflict. Obviously primitive humans would need to compete for dominance and a primitive survival, but we are a lot different now.

synthetic life: Great is the design that fools the on-looker.
How has the bible told of what you speak of, how does it talk about DNA or even proteins or anything that has been discovered by science? To know that light is light and dark is the absence of like is the result of observation (or science). There have been many people ahead of their time, understanding things or thinking about things. This doesn't mean that god told them. And if so how exactly did god tell them what to write in the bible, and if god did then does that mean that everything in the bible is communicated from god?

Zared, First off i don't your getting what i mean by happiness (and probably many others), it has nothing to do with material possessions, nor does it have to do with needing more after it is attained. I also think that your confusing greed and materialism, because after all money doesn't mean happiness so nether does having more. I still don't understand what exactly your argument is. "happiness infringes on equality because it makes people always want more"? No because happiness has nothing to do with the wanting of more. "happiness is relative" True, but nobodies happiness should be at the expense of another. " Distinguish and discriminate are separated by a very thin line" No because one is racism and the other is to, like you said, distinguish people like Abraham Lincoln from George W. Bush. "Differences in perspectives are likely to cause social traps because each person might be against the other person's perception" Social traps as you put it, are inevitable, the solution to those problems is to show that the different perspectives (as long as they are within the basic code of ethics) are not that different. Therefor there is no need to impose anything. And they can be solved by the court of law.

I agree with you on the problem of interpretation and enforcement. That is, in the end, the fatal flaw of all form of laws and government. But I think that there is a solution, maybe a basic computer judge (without bias or greed) or something. But I do think that eventually the common citizen will begin to look for some kind of code of law that protects them even from their government

You should reword that. but if your saying that showing similarities would somehow cause more differences to arise, well i don't see how that would happen

there is a difference between distinguish and discriminate. again the goal is to unify. Difference in perspectives wouldn't interfere with laws (in would actually make the rules stronger), as i said they would be right regardless of peoples experiences and environment. Freedom of religion could still occur under the universal code as long as the religion doesn't cause harm to others. Happiness has nothing to do with more, and if you mean more as more material possessions then that is not true happiness. Are you saying that happiness infringes on equality?

first of all you cant support the teary of creation with the bible, because first that is circular and second their are many religious doctrine on creation, so the bible is just as valid as us being held up by a turtle. Your confusing what Im saying, I was just saying that if their is a soul then modern science couldn't comprehend or explain it so the current theories on the brain and what we have observed of the brain to date may be just a part of the self. And as for the superhuman DNA, i was talking about human DNA, and by the way what does the bible say about God being human or even a physical thing that requires DNA? If the bible is their to explain the fringes of gods ways then how could it be written by man? Don,t get me wrong i get what your saying, you just have conflicting ideas

Discrimination isn't needed for cognitive function. Nor is distinguishing groups important. That is in fact the problem, people feel like others are different because of the color of their skin or their sex. Part of this universal ethics is to make people see that they are not that different from others. And it is true that people may have differing rationales but these rationales are not important as long as they follow the code of ethics, just like peoples freedom of religion today
