    So anything that doesn't directly benefit humans is useless? Not to sound rude, but i was just making a point. Even if thier lives are "useless" they still act to preserve the balance of nature, and yes; I know that we don't kill enough of them to disrupt that balance.

    It's true. Their only purpose in life is to further human scientific and medical knowledge, as it should be. They would otherwise be sitting around infesting people's homes, making babies and ruining crops. Is it so bad that we kill them in the name of science?

    lol I suppose it's not as bad as it seems. After all, Len managed to make a natural death sound contraversial.

    lol, yeah, he has a tendency to do that.
    I had to dissect one of those gigantic mutant worms last year, and I hope to god I wont have to see those things out and about after a rainy day. I'd scream like a girl.

    Yes. Yes we are. But also, would these animals lead a useful life in the wild? I think not. Humans have a general goal in life- Breed and strengthen the gene pool. Now, humans also have a common goal- Further the living conditions of humans. This includes science, making medicines to cure disease, expanding life expectancy. Now what does a mouse do to contribute to the later generations? They make babies. Lots and lots of useless babies.

    I'm all for killing these poor defensless animals, but at what point would it become too much? I bet these same arguements were maid when we were whaleing.

    Another point uncontrolled populations of say rats can be used as vectors or disease or even used in the same capacity as biological weapons. They're just little terrorists waiting to happen.

    Well I guess we're not just talking mice. What about the other before mentioned "victims"?
