Does this university have a name, or is it as fictional as your classes in research methods? Until you can prove it, it is like most of your postings - baseless opinion. So name this institution of higher learning so your claims can be verified, or quit this line of drivel. In other words, "Put up, or Shut up".
I absolutely will not tell you where I have been a guest speaker. It really is not any of your business. I also am not making an argument from authority. As I stated earlier, I know you have not taken an advanced research class. You lack even a basic understanding of science and the scientific method. What I have asserted also is not opinion. It is a FACT that there is not scientifically validated research that shows that animal abuse is a predictor of human abuse. It simply does not exist.

Your lack of emotion and empathy is quite telling. I bet you avoid eye contact, social situations, and have no friends. You must spend countless hours on anonymous internet forums to avoid any human interaction. You laugh at inappropriate times, and make awkward comments in the few social situations you find yourself in. As a child, you were labeled as 'odd', but nobody knew quite what to do about it, hoping you would 'grow out of it'. It wasn't until later in life that you were finally diagnosed. You are an Aspie.
You know this because I provide accurate information about science? Seriously dude, get a grip. All that you know is that I have more knowledge of science than you. That doesn't make me an "aspie." It just mean I have more knowledge in this subject area. I am sure that you have more knowledge than me in a different subject area but it would be ridiculous of me to give you a clinical diagnosis because of that. I hope you see how ridiculous you sound.

Dr. Randall Lockwood, a psychologist who has written extensively on the link between animal abuse and human violence, wrote "Those who abuse animals for no obvious reason are budding psychopaths. They have no empathy and only see the world as what it's going to do for them."
It only has been in the last twenty years that social scientists and law enforcement have recognized the significance of animal cruelty to other crimes. In 1987, the DSM-III-R added animal cruelty as an indicator of conduct disorder and in 1990 only seven states had felony-level provisions in their animal cruelty statutes, compared to the 41 who do so today.
In 1987, the Diagnostic and Statistical Style Manual added animal cruelty as an indicator of the presence of conduct disorder in children. The diagnostic criteria for conduct disorder are clustered into four groups. The first symptom cluster is “aggression to people and animals,” distinguishing these actions from destruction of property, deceitfulness or theft, and serious violations of rules (American Psychiatric Association, 1994).
Ascione (2001) notes,“Cruelty to animals may be one of the first CD symptoms to appear in young children”(p. 5). Additionally, a recent study (Verlinden, 2000) found that five of the 11 perpetrators of school shootings between 1996 and 1999 had histories of animal abuse. In recognition of this link, the American Psychological Association, the National Crime Prevention Council, and the National School Safety Council cite animal cruelty as one of the warning signs for identifying at-risk youth.
I thought you were mocking Psychologists earlier. Now you cite them as experts. Your lack of consistency is troubling. You should research "confirmation bias" and "belief perseverance." You are the text book case for both of these. 5670

I do not hate children with autism. I have them in my family . We treat them with love and respect which is part of treating all God's creatures. You on the other hand are a very sick individual and I fear you are abusing these children. I hope someone has the courage to out you skank.
What makes me sick? Because I understand and utilize science? I wish you were smarter. 7131

You are an idiot, Big Brenda. But you have time. I'm thinking that you must be young to have a mind that could bring you no further than that.
The only surplus creatures are human. The girls in this video need some serious correcting, i.e., incarceration with concurrent psychiatric evaluation and counseling, IF it appears they can function normally after that, they could be released on parole, on condition that 1) Counseling continues throughout their parole; 2) They not own, live with, or come in contact with any animal (mammal, reptile, bird, bug etc); and 3) The parents have undergone a psychiatric evaluation and counseling followed by a) An evaluation of their parenting skills; b) An estimate of their probable success as parents; and c) A determination of whether or not they should be allowed to continue as parents. These parents failed miserably at their most important job, which was to raise their children.

Given that there is a lack of scientifically validated evidence that shows that animal abuse leads to human abuse, we could just do nothing. It is just some kittens. Objectively speaking, they are not more valuable than mice, bugs, lice or any other critter that humans kill.

Here's something I have observed during my life.
You don't need to be an expert in human behavior to see this.
Most people do not change that much during a life time.
Sure, you age and you slow down, once bitten by a snake you learn to stay away from snakes (the school of hard knocks).at a certain age you discover you can't party like you once did.but you basically are what you are, you are a product of your inviroment.
If you hang out with loosers you will become like them, that's why when young your parents are responsible for guiding you in the right direction.

There is much good in attending things like church when you become older.if you were never given proper guidence in your youth a church can set you on the correct path, like maybe you shouldn't hate people or do drugs or steal or look down on poor people. You will always be what you were raised in, your inviroment, bad habits are hard to quit ,but at least you have escaped the bad that you had been surrounded with.
It's all about discipline and the people you hang with.but you will be fighting with your past behavior all your life.you are what you are.

A few months back a woman friend who owns a beautiful dog made a statement to me about how she hates and mistrust people but loves animals. Her dog offers her unconditional love, human relationships have gone sour on her.ha ha ha , I laughed inside, maybe the real problem is you.try living in the wild, dog eat dog real animal world where it's survival of the fittest and the
weak are eaten without mercy .
Moral of the story, you have the ability to reason, use it or be part of that wild animal world, dog eat dog inviroment.

So you see, that 57 year old woman is begging for love and affection, problem is, she's not willing to give the same.It's all about her.
Love is easy to give, just do it without passing judgement.

Religion is great if it works for you. I personally find God to be an amoral fascist. If God exists, he is the biggest POS ever. He is complete devoid of any fabric of morality. I think owning slaves, killing homosexuals and adulterers is really being morally lacking. I wish God were a better entity instead of a hateful piece of shit.
