Default Dog Philosophy

Diogenes was a young man from Sinope, on the Euxine, the son of a
disreputable money-changer who had been sent to prison for defacing
the coinage. His aim in life was to do as his father had done, to
'deface the coinage,' but on a much larger scale. He would deface all
the coinage current in the world. Every conventional stamp was false.
The men stamped as generals and kings; the things stamped as honour
and wisdom and happiness and riches; all were base metal with lying

He decided to live like a dog, and was therefore called a "cynic,"
which means "canine." He rejected all conventions—whether of religion,
of manners, of dress, of housing, of food, or of decency...

A History of Western Philosophy
by Bertrand Russell

Then the Christians came and said... "Thou shalt not kill dogs and
cats!" but kept killing chicken. Well, I'm sure you get the point...

"Thou shalt not kill" says nothing about "except chickens, cows, pigs,
horses.." They shoot horses don't they?

So now you want the Bible to be specific? How about "Thou shalt not
kill dogs and cats!"... Is that anywhere in the Bible? Do you eat

I'm afraid you will have to use your imagination.
