Then why do people not hit pedestrians?

Sometimes they do. Larger objects bring up the worry about damaging your own vehicle. Not to mention that whole murder thing.

Only a small percentage of people are truly sick puppies.


Also try this to prove my fly theory.

Try to walk a straight line looking at something that is slightly to the left or right. Make sure you keep looking at what your target is. See what happens to the straight line.

I didn’t need this experiment to know how stupid, selfish, and evil some drivers are. I was in a car with a business partner years ago when I was shocked all to hell when this CHRISTIAN almost drove off the road in the car he was driving, to get this, run over a kitten in the road. Apparently it was a part of a feral litter in his neighborhood. ASTOUNDING!

When it comes to survival. I'd just keep going. But I wouldn't run over animals for fun or because they might be inconveniencing myself (ie birds walking all over the road). To value life like that is just plain wrong.

What's scary is, this doesn't surprise me.

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

The reality is, people are evil, and no amount of law can change this. That is where religion comes in.

I think the level of sociopathic tendencies is very understated.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Deliberately running over turtles or kittens is a crime in most civilized countries, it's animal cruelty. However, in most states and countries it's just a misdemeanor crime with some insignificant monetary fine. Still, it would be a start if the people admitting to these crimes to researchers were investigated and charged.

i know as a species we tend to use animals for our own ends and its how we've developed to survive, however going out of your way to intentionally harm anything i think is terrible. i think its down to ignorance as many believe that as animals aren't as intelligent as we are in some ways they do not feel as we do. however enjoying inflicting pain on anything seems to me as quite primitive and the signs of a psychopath
