Moral Animals

The study of the behavior of many different non-human animals has shed some interesting findings in the way groups of animals behave among one another, the way sometimes humans do. The authors of this article, Jessica Pierce, a bioethicist and writer, and Marc Bekoff, a professor emeritus of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Colorado at Boulder, suggest that many animals relate to each other in a moral manner. Especially, they claim, this behavior can be observed when animals are engaged in playful action. To read the full article please search online for Moral in Tooth and Claw

It’s fantastic the behavioral science is letting us take a peek at the lives of animals in ways never imagined. While we are learning more about them and finding that they are incredibly complex creatures, that in so many ways resemble us, animal exploitation has not diminished, but actually it’s at its peak. Sadly, humanity ignores the incredible creativity of our Creator, and very conveniently, places animals at the level of commodities.
