I like how those speech bubbles are connected. Non-linear.
Did you know that the NW tip of Texas is closer to CehNehDeh than to Brownsville?
But 40% of the provinces are bigger than Texas.Or 30%, depending on which way the Rio Grande cuts a bank this year.

You can quote me on that.
They also fiddled with his predatory practices which affect the rest of the eco-system.
re. “what we do is part of our “nature.” Yes. I would be honoured if you read my response to Shamino, above.
Re. “Why do we suppose humans are un-natural?”:
From a Judeo-Christian perspective, because we uniquely bear Imago Dei. Yes, all Creation reflects the deity in some way, but whether you believe Genesis literally or metaphorically, Humans are special (“un-natural”) & given a mandate to be stewards of the rest of nature.
Muslims don’t buy the Image of God idea. I’ll leave them & adherents of other faiths to address it from their own perspectives.
re. PETA:If PETA’s materialist worldview is correct (“The cosmos is all there ever was, all there is, and all there ever will be.” Carl Sagan), then human beings are just one more arbitrary chunk. Whatever we do just IS. We are a random part of nature. Chicken & cattle are what they are through natural selection. There’s no morality to our actions any more than ants that farm aphids or mosquitos that mine us. Species come & go as a result. The “E” in PETA is arbitrary.
Cattle & chickens are two of the most successful species on earth.
I wish I’d thought of that.
Physicists do it in fields.
C, eh. N, eh. D, eh.
