Bad Philosophy Disguised as Reason

This video is full of really bad reasoning and philosophy by Richard Dawkins.  I wonder why someone would by his line of thinking, but then I figured it out - he sounds authoritative, because of his really cool accent.

A scientist might contribute to the debate information about at what point in the development of Dawkins rational thinking comes into being and presumably before rational thinking begins there is no ability to realize he's in pain and is suffering. On the other hand, even when Dawkins develops the ability for rational thinking and the ability to perhaps suffer, it's still a much smaller ability than that of an adult cow. So what about balancing the suffering of Dawkins against the suffering of an adult cow being slaughtered.
