With a bad day, all my hope in this world was benighted, actually nothing happened to me, but sometimes when we see around, we see bad things.
Though I have understood over the years that people are panegyric from outside, but in real, they are different. The mellifluous things we hear from them are just illusions.
When a father was in the market with his little son, something strange happened. A man was cutting chickens, one second they were alive and in the next second dead. They don’t take much time in dying, like humans do.
The man was looking expedient, all his attention was focused on his work.
The son asked his father- dear father, why do we kill these little chickens? Isn’t it morally wrong?
The father replied- No son, it is a cycle, we have to eat them, otherwise their population will increase.
The son replied- so why don’t we just kill them and not eat? In this way they would be able to live a little longer, as we will kill them only when their population becomes a trouble.
The father didn’t had any answer. After a long pause, the father said- it is our food, we need food for survival.
The son asked- will we die without it? Don’t we have anything else to eat?
The father was again stunned. He knew he had no answer, he was just trying to manipulate his son in believing him.
The son said- give me an answer only when you can reason it yourself.
That night the redolent chicken was not able to bring the father to the dinner table, he was taking the earlier discussion with his son very seriously. He never answered his son, but he also never ate it again.
It is really strange how could people behave so double sided. In general people belong to two different groups, theists and atheists, there are other groups too, but these two are the most basic.
So a theist believes in god, he believes in right and wrong, if he is killing someone, say a chicken, he is doing wrong. Because he is hindering with god’s creation. So a theist is bound to save the chicken, otherwise he has no right to call himself a theist.
On the other hand, an atheist believes that there is no god, so morality is not objective but relative. We can do what we feel is right, if it is permitted legally. So yes killing of chicken is permitted everywhere, as if they were only made to die. But then according to them, killing of humans will also be okay, because morality is just opinion based. And if a more powerful person kills a less powerful one, then it should be okay, and it should be permitted legally, because lately human population is becoming more dangerous then chicken population. And the atheist will not be able to get himself out from this dilemma.
In order to understand this, why not perform an experiment, bring a pet to your house and spend time with it for a week. And after that kill it with your hands.
How does it feel?
Do you feel guilty?
You will definitely get your answer. Now do the same with your old furniture, use it for a week and then destroy it.
In which case do you feel more guilt?
You see the difference now. It doesn’t matter which animal you kill, eat or use.
But one thing should matter to you, and that is- are you true to yourself?
Are you thinking about what you are doing?
There is a wonderful world around us, why not live and let live?
Don’t stop doing it because it is wrong, no body can claim that it is wrong, just stop doing it because it is not you. Think for yourself.
