Is human dignity and uniqueness an outmoded conceptual relic? Do humans have a claim to inalienable rights not enjoyed by the great apes? Princeton University Bioethics Professor Peter Singer does not appear to think so. Nor does the nation of Spain. Is this just another social movement waiting to happen? Waiting for the right alignment of political power and judicial precedents?
Theron Bowers alludes to these issues and more in his article THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS IDEA Being human is no big deal. Perhaps the concerns mentioned are a bit far fetched. They are clearly at variance with biblical ideas which have framed basic values of western civilization. But do those hostile to such values have any grounds for rebuking Singer? Spain?
