I was really glad to find out that they don't feel pain, I always felt kind of bad savagely putting them on a hook or cutting them into a dozen pieces.Ok then! Point taken. I learned something new today! And I retract my statement. Although I will say in passing that scientists also used to believe that newborn babies nervousness systems were not yet developed enough to feel pain... They now KNOW this to be completely untrue. That being said, their study on the worms and lobsters is very convincing. Then again, I'm sure the newborn study was too.
Yah I agree, scientists are wrong a lot, and things always change. Their conclusions may change.
But in the mean time I suppose I will trust them.
It does kind of seem like he is trying to get a big argument going (success ), but at the same time he also seems like he is just trying to advance his knowledge in limnology, he just isn't doing it the right way. I did the same thing a while ago to try and advance my knowledge of herpetology and wild amphibians, but in the wrong way. I now am doing it in a much better way, reading, a lot ( ever printed off a 36 page PDF? ). -SethBy the way, Seth, I DO agree with you. But I kind of get the idea that limnologist is just looking for a heated discussion. Unfortunately, I don't think anything you say will change what he is doing. For what it's worth
