We should teach crabs to read so they can learn how to speak. Maybe one day the crabs will be able to speak their thoughts and tell us how to help the human race. Also, If you don't like someone then you could have a crab go into their house and take notes and spy on them. Crabs are extremely useful and would be even more helpful if they could read.

Crabs do not have the same brain as us and cannot read and write like us. We should not force organisms to be whatever we like, But whatever is good for them. You don't want to study 24h a day, Neither does the crab favors to read and write human knowledge.

First of all why would we make the crab study 24/7 just like humans crabs should have a school system so the can have breaks and classes just like us. Second of all it will help organizims as a whole because if crabs can successfully learn to read and comprehend a language that overtime they can develop and understand they can then start working on more complicated task such as establish a functional government and economy. Finally I personally think that everything should have an availability to learn, Even crabs. Crabs are very useful animals, And they can be even more useful for small tasks and support animals

Crabs aren't humans. They don't want humans on them, Nor do they want humans teach them their way. It goes without saying that teaching a non-human animal a human language is as useful as punching a grain of salt on a glass board with flex glue applied.

You seem to know alot about crabs and apparently know how crabs don't want to learn or do anything related to human behavior. In conclusion to this whole debate we just don't know the capability of the crab without trying to see if they can read and comprehend a language that can be hide spread between species of animals and ultimately we can have peace between That's why I want to teach crabs how to read and make the relationship between animals and humans collectively better.

The Burden of proof is always on you. Prove these things below:

1) Crabs have similar eyesights and vocal cords to humans, Causing them to read and write human text.
2) That it is possible.
3) What other animals can we do the same thing on? Just crabs? No?
4) Can we, And Should we, Are two separate topics. In fact if we can even teach crabs to read according to you, Why bother? Why not apes, Dogs, Horses, Sheep, And mules? Why crabs? Why is it so worth it for wildlife protectors just putting flashcards in front of crabs and seeing them make random and incorrect noises? How much will it take to truly master human language? How can we understand what does crabs say in their own way of contact? Because if we can't even understand crab languages and fluently speak to them, Why bother do them to us?

If we are to teach crabs to speak our language, Perhaps we should also learn crab, Because we should s
strive for equality, Human and crab alike.
