Killing a human is worse than killing a dolphin which is worse than killing a dog which is worse than killing a mouse which is worse than killing a fly etc.
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her.
Does she know why?
Perhaps she'll die.
Seriously for me, Morality is a measuring tool against whicch to measure actions to see if they're things I'd like to do,
You say above That killing a human worse than killing a dolphin, which is worse than killing a dog.
Do if were were to arbitrarily assign points
Killing a human = 100 bad points
Killing a Dolphin = 85 bad points
Killing a dog = 50 bad points.
Like that? That completely works for me, except for one thing
Is there any non-arbitrary way to assign those points? When I ask "Why is killing a person worse than killing a dolphin?" How do you KNOW? WHat yard stick do you use to assign bad points to one versus how many bad poinnt accrue for killing the other?
Show your work. I wwant to know howw you know, and Ideally I am hoping someone will describe an objective, sound method for this.
I want to KNOW that killing a human being is 100 bad points versus killing a Dolphin at 85 bad points.
I want to know this the way I know that at the surface of the Earth, Objects fall at 9.98 m/s^2
Otherwise any argument based on "You shouldn't hurt people" is based on an opinion, not a fact.
