Cows Critically Endangered by Eugenics

How many cows are in the field? Just 1 in 180,000 according to genetics!


Chad Dechow – an associate professor of dairy cattle genetics – and others say there is so much genetic similarity among cows, the effective population size is less than 50. If cows were wild animals, that would put them in the category of critically endangered species.

It's pretty much one big inbred family says Leslie B. Hansen, a cow expert and professor at the University of Minnesota. Fertility rates are affected by inbreeding, and already, cow fertility has dropped significantly. Also, when close relatives are bred, serious health problems could be lurking.

With eugenics, one is moving towards an ultimate state as perceived from an external viewer (the human), which is opposite of what is considered healthy in nature that seeks diversity for resilience and strength.

The Inbreeding Argument against Eugenics

In chapter Science as a Guiding Principle for Life? in the eugenics article, a philosophical case is made that science cannot be a guiding principle for life.

Eugenics results in a situation similar to incest (inbreeding) because the output of science is history.

With eugenic self-control of evolution, based on science, evolution would be guided by history, a fundamental perspective into the past instead of a perspective into a moral future, which results in a fundamental unhealthy situation that is similar to inbreeding.

Moving Inwards

Eugenics moves inwards in the context of an infinite ocean of time, which is opposite of what is vital for prosperity in time.

Eugenics is fundamentally an escape attempt that results in accumulating weakness in the infinite scope of time.

The following philosophical logic provides an insight:

An attempt to stand above life, as being life, results in a figurative stone that sinks in the infinite ocean of time.

Philosophical Arguments Against Eugenics

The article about eugenics contains several chapters that philosophically investigate the fundamental roots of eugenics.

Animal Protection Fails

In chapter Intellectual Challenge: Wittgenstinian Silence and subchapter Animal Protection Fails, it is shown that animal protection fails when it concerns GMO.
