Really the problem is that you are eating the flesh of your fellow animal. See, a core belief is that all members of the animal kingdom are the same. No one species is better than the other. As a result, its the eating of their flesh that we're opposed to. There are those who are opposed to the entire idea of killing, and I admit there was a time when I thought of it in a similar way, but its more the inhumane slaughter from mass production. Still its more about the eating than the killing. In my mind, at least, its no different than going to your neighbor's house and cutting off a chunk of him to fry up.
Animals are not my neighbors.
Really? Where do you live, the polar ice cap where there isn't another living soul for hundreds of miles, regardless of species?
If they live in the city than the animals most likely aren't their neighbors and were most likely bred outside of the city, actually, which is the case for the majority of people.
do you not know the definition of neighbor?
it's not very polite to insult someone who was trying to have a civilized conversation with you.
Or did you just fail science miserably and have no clue that homo sapiens are members of the animal kingdom and as such are animals?
They have no issue tearing other animals limb from limb, injecting venom into them before eating them whole, or crushing them.
This is irrelevant. Other animals do not have the higher brain function to understand that what they are doing to each other is unacceptable.
We are animals, as you said before, and that means that we have just as much right to follow our instincts as other animals. our instincts push us towards survival. if we don't eat as our instincts tell us, we'll die. eating animals is no worse than eating plants as I said in my last post, and we've got to eat something. animals are a part of our natural diet and have been for a long time.
