5- to 9-year-old children chose to save multiple dogs over 1 human, and valued the life of a dog as much as a human. By contrast, almost all adults chose to save 1 human over even 100 dogs. The view that humans are morally more important than animals appears later and may be socially acquired. journals.sagepub.com/doi/…

Ask Grey a Question for a Ten Year Q&A
Please submit your questions for the next Q&A with Grey. Some notes and guidelines:
- Please vote on questions. This thread is in contest mode so all the questions are being displayed in random order to maximize fairness, but for that to work more votes must be cast than questions are asked. If you post a question, please vote on at least three other questions. The thread is also open and checked until the next video goes up so you're never too late.
- The YouTube channel is a universe parallel to the podcasts, so just because something has been discussed on a podcast episode doesn't mean it's off limits.
- Questions about 'your favorite' or 'least favorite' aren't often interesting questions to answer.
- As this is a ten year Q&A, questions that relate to that somehow have a better chance of being selected
- If your question is selected, I will almost certainly edit it for brevity, clarity, or to simply shape it to my will.
