    I was just thinking about how in scary movies that aliens who hunt and eat people, terrorize their homes, or kidnap them are made out to me horrid creatures and the whole point is to save humanity and stop them. But yet its perfectly normal to do this to these kinds of things to animals.

    Doe anyone else find this odd?

    Hey @Dars,

    It’s not really fair to say a “mere animal” in relation to humans, since humans ARE animals! :)

    And ALL animals feel pain, fear, love, and terror!

      @Iweske To think that there is zero difference between a human and any other creature would be quite a stretch however, there is no comparing the difference in fear felt by a human being hunted and a wolf or a deer. They may feel terror, but they cannot anticipate it like we can. They cannot imagine what the pain will feel like, or the terror of realizing escape is impossible, or be thinking about all they’re about to leave behind.

    Humans are more self-aware than animals, they can visualize about their potential future better and therefore can experience true terror. Animals can be aware they’re being hunted, trying to outrun their pursuers. But humans not only know they’re being hunted, they know by who and how, they imagine horrible futures for themselves, and so feel much greater terror than a mere animal can.

    I’m writing my own novel that covers this topic. In a rather umm…bloody manner?

    But anyways, yes, I have noticed this. It’s really kind of sad that when we take exactly what humans do to nonhuman creatures and apply it to humans it becomes an instant horror story. Except people don’t realize that this horror story is very real. On the topic of aliens, I really hope humanity never encounters any. Not because I think the aliens are going to kidnap us or eat us or anything like that, but looking at what humans do to other nonhuman creatures already, just picture what humans would do to extraterrestrial beings. If I was an alien I would keep my distance from this planet for a reason.

    I don’t find it odd because many humans struggle to relate their own suffering to other non-human animals.

    I love food and animals(reason why I'm here :)). Pescatarian for a few months but then realized fish also have a life and feelings just like any other living creature, so I became Vegetarian. Peta2 helped me a lot on becoming a better person and why Im going Vegan. Love being surrounded by people who share the same interests as me, so If you have any questions feel free to ask ! :)
