Descartes Theorem Disproven - Poem by Saiom Shriver
In his Frankenstein research lab, Rene Descartes nailed dogs' paws to tables, a modern crucifixion, impaling them that they not be able to escape the imposition of agony.
He believed animals did not have thought capability and that they had no feelings, though they screamed when he inflicted pain on them.
Descartes said 'I think. Therefore I am.' Because of this, he is
called by some other rationalists the father of modern philosophy.
The logical next step from his biased point of view would be
'Animals think not. Therefore they are not.'
Yet whether one is aware or not of thousands of nonviolent experiments establishing animal intelligence, it is obvious that animals do exist, disproving Descartes' assertion that thought is the main criterion for existence.
No compassion had Descartes. Can we assume he had no heart?
