Being that I'm a dino-geek and a big fan of the Jurassic Franchise (essence my "JURASSIC MONTH" event), you can understand that although is still a full year away...
I AM SUPER HYPED FOR JURASSIC WORLD 2
This is because of two reasons:
1- It will be continuing an surprisingly realistic story, that creates a reality in many, similar to our own.
2- It will be asking a pretty thought-provoking question:
"Would an formerly "extinct" animal have the same rights as a "normal" animals?"
And it is the later point that I'm focusing on with today's post.
You see, Colin Trevorrow (one of the people working on the story)
"The Dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment of today's animals: abuse, experiments in medicine, unhealthy pets, haing wild animals in circuses like prisons, GMO farm-animals, military use has been made of them- animals being used as weapons."
Basically, what that means is that very likely, the dinosaurs might be modified to be integrated in human society. And they they are thought off less as animals, and more as "property/software".
...and I imagine that a Bio-genetics company like InGen might use their gene-splicing abilities to make dinosaurs that can survive harsh environments so that they can be given to developing countries as a substitute for farm-animals.
Here is the Example I've speculated, what you have here is a dinosaur whose DNA was modified from the herbivorous biped called Psittacosaurus that originally stood only two feet tall.
But when given the modified growth hormones of Sauropods (long-necked dinosaurs), and given sturdier legs (and a modified beak), they become what I call:
"Pssitco-splice Meat-Breed 48"
a creature that can grow to the size of a buffalo and has huge fat-layers on it's belly, it's back and it's neck.
These docile mutants are given to developing coutries like Botswana (Africa) and Mongolia (Asia) as livestock because they grow three times as bulky as an average bull, but are "engineered" to require less food than bulls.
And, as an added bonus, they are prized for their delicious eggs as well as their juicy meat.
(The original dinosaur is on the left, the modified one is on the middle)
2- what else do you like about it?...
what other roles in the world do you think modified dinosaurs could be put in?
But by the way, what other roles in the world do you think modified dinosaurs could be put in?
and how might they look?
ideas range from:
-experiments in medicine (like people do with rats)
. circus = none existent because they don't do animals anymore and that is perfect because i hate how cruel they are
. pets = i can picture some theropods to fill the roles of dogs as they are modified to be small i think of it like this:
Tyrannosaurs = Labradors
abelisaurs = bulldogs
wile dromeosaurs like velociraptor could be altered to be like a cat
. pack mules = hadrosaurs, ceratopsians and ankylosaurs
. military = large theropods like tyrannosaurus rex, giganotosaurus and MAYBE spinosaurus
. gaurd = drameosaurs
But the whole idea of what i is the question "Would an formerly "extinct" animal have the same rights as a "normal" animals?"
Because what some people of this universe think is this-
"An extinct animal that is brought back to life has no rights."
"they exists because we made them."
"We patented them."
"We Own Them"
So I think there might be circuses in some parts of the world because they might think: "Oh, these aren't real animals, we made them, they belong to us"
that is the ethical question that JW2 is asking. That these "resurrected" Dinosaurs might be subjected to cruel things that "normal" animals are already protected from.
They could, if they wanted, genetically engineer a Dino that is completely dim, so they can experiment on it. you understand?
so what do you think of that?
yes, if anything it has even more rights as it should know what death is, there have been some animals that WERE extinct but found again and they are guarded round the clock
. that sounds really stupid, like saying "people of the future don't have rights because they technically aren't alive YET"
. same can be said about dogs and they get a ton of rights that if they are broken the owner gets WRECKED
. (read 2nd point)
. technically at this point we own the world, or at least most of it
true that would happen, but the'y probably be getting stopped at various points like how drug dealers get busted even though there are like 6 others
that seems like a law that should be fixed right there
by dim do you mean an idiot or do you mean depressed?
sounds depressing and realistic, i like it
