Quote:Because it's unethical to replicate hundreds/thousands of creatures who lived millions of years ago?
Why? Seriously, I would think it was SUPER-ethical, like the vegans (and other animal rights activists) would want the theme park owners canonized as saints.
Don't get me wrong - I'm sure there would be protests. There always are. I just wouldn't expect the animal rights activists to lead the charge.
Quote:Because we can't replicate the things they used to eat?
What were the creatures in the film eating? Probably cows and pigs, I guess, which I guess some vegans (and other animal rights activists) would dislike.
Quote:Because we can't replicate the environment they lived in.
But they wouldn't exist at all otherwise.
Quote:And of course the obvious one...they're being put in a f*cking park to be exploited by idiot theme park owners with little guarantees for the safety of the dinosaurs or of the guests.
Yeah, I guess the animal rights activists might fear the guests would hurt the dinosaurs. As for the opposite fear - I think a lot of animal rights activists (the more misanthropic ones) would jokingly refer to the place as the ultimate Darwin Awards contest. (Say, I looked up the Darwin Awards, and apparently they were launched in 1993, which makes them one of ours!)
