Ok people. Explain why it is our duty to save some human beings and not save some Dinosaurs? Moving people costs money too you know.

Not all Hawaiian's pay taxes psst. If anything we should be allowed to save the dinosaurs and the Hawaiians at the same time. They both have rights and deserve to live. Also Dinosaurs aren't natural born killers you fool. We can easily maternally imprint on the dinosaur babies therefore ending the threat of a dinosaur wanting to eat people. If anything we should switch the island the Hawaiians are on. Or what if the Hawaiians were on the island with the dinosaurs what would you do then?

Kill the dinosaurs, also I said nothing about taxes. I was talking about your shit comparison to a genocide. Which kinda hits close to home to me considering that both of my people have been genocided.

The people will later contribute to the human race, the dinosaurs only provide expensive entertainment. Dinosaurs will not cooperate, they have to be tranquilized and rounded up and shipped off the island in special containers and made sure each gets their proper health care and made sure they stay docile until they can be released or put into temporary captivity that will also cost probably millions in money like the original park on the other island. People will cooperate and will help themselves and others and the money will be worth it once they contribute back in taxes and such later, among other things.

People aren't dinosaurs. Dinosaurs went extinct once, every species, during their own time. And they can be raised again in the Jurassic Park universe. Humans are invaluable, dinosaurs are expensive, mutated entertainment managed by a corporation.

Because dinosaurs have no rights. They don't belong in our biosphere, there is no existing ecosystem where it belongs. Dinos would only destroy present ecosystems and exacerbate endangerment of species that do belong.

I'm beginning to run out of fuel on this fire, my last argumentative statement shall have to be taken up by someone else or i'll get a Migraine. Still I want to know why it's our duty to save human lives and not save dinosaur lives too? We could do it at the same time couldn't we? If anything the more lives saved the better.

Not all Hawaiians pay taxes. None of the dinosaurs do.

No, we don't save them at the same time. Dinosaurs get no consideration until all human lives have been saved.

Yes, dinosaurs are wild goddamn animals. People struggle to keep their pitbulls from viewing infants as snacks to go, what the hell makes you think dinosaurs will be able to become cuddly friendly pets even though we have little to no idea how to train them.

The Hawaiians stay on their island if they want to; we can evacuate them in times of crisis.

And if that crisis comes into the shape of dinosaurs placed there by eco-loons, the dinosaurs get the bullet. All of them.

What if the people don't contribute to the human race and all it's ideas. What if they grow fat and lazy off of being paid on Welfare. Hell. we'd have more homeless people who don't pay taxes than Hawaiians. Saving the Dinosaurs and Hawaiian's should be the biggest priority.

The humans should always take priority over the dinosaurs. If the evacuation situation for the dinosaurs is unsafe and threatens human lives, then it should not be attempted. Those species haven't been in the biosphere for tens of millions of years, they require close biological management on top of the pain in the ass of evacuating the dinosaurs in and of itself.

Well there is one last idea that doesn't involve the death of humans or dinosaurs....we could build an underwater city with dinosaurs and call it dinotopia. Where humans and dinosaurs coexist. This isn't our reality if you remember meaning we can spend the alternate realities money and bankrupt them therefore saving human lives and dinosaurs. Some humans are natural born killers too when they're born out of the womb. What stops us from killing them as well?

Im sure a place could be found for them.

And they wouldn't be a invasive species if their population is controlled.
