is dissecting an animal right?
 
science class making us dissect frogs. teacher says if we dont cut, we can watch. there is no way in hell im watching that. not because its scary, but because i dont want to open up a corpse and take it apart for the purpose of answering a worksheet in my class. i find it disgusting how the teacher thinks dissecting humans is bad but animals is alright. an animal has a life too and i wouldnt wanna mess up their corpse. on the other hand she tells me it is immoral to mess with a human corpse that is resting in peace. wth

i know for sure i wont take grade 11 science so i dont really care about the class. however i have it now and it can bring my average down. i dont feel that it is right knowing i wont use that knowledge again in my life.

hell yeah it's ok. if you are studying biology you need to see what you are talking about. this is education.

are you a vegetarian? do you wear leather?

Nothing wrong with it if you're interested or want to major in a science or medicine.

Worst mistake of your life brother.

Don't quit science, quit that, you quit on understanding how the world around you works.

Science
History
Sociology


You can conquer the world with these three

I'm not sure that the act of dissection is something a person concerned with animal rights should be worried about. The animal is dead at that point and can feel no pain inflicted on it.

I would agree that the teacher is being inconsistent in condoning the dissection of other animals but not humans, but I would suspect that the teacher believes this to be the case because they think humans are uniquely endowed with souls.

The last class you should give up is science! Science informs nearly everything in your life. You simply cannot have led a meaningful life if you don't investigate the nature of your existence, even if it is on the level of brute facts.

You have to dissect for Grade 10 science? I know we have to do it in Grade 11 biology, but I didn't think 10s have to do it.

And by the way, you don't need to give up science. Just don't take biology.

Idk I dunt have an interest in ANY science I've done in my life. Prbly cuz I dunt care about the things I've learned so far. I'll keep my options open but I'm good at math.

Dude, mathmatics is the most important.

Everything is broken down into numbers, everything. and without an understanding of how numbers work you will not understand anything else.

Science is useless if you dont knw math, History is just words, mathmatics is what allowed everything in the past to happen. Sociology is a waste of time.

English classes. So important. Kids these days have no idea how to spell or even SPEAK properly. Punctuation is a damn mystery.

It actually upsets me to see how some of you guys spell and structure your sentences. So, please. Take more English classes, Fancy was dead on.
