What is he being ignorant about? He admits the problem, is okay with it and continues to eat meat.

Of course if you want to promote good treatment of animals that's fine too, just don't imagine that abstaining from meat does an animal any good.

Vegans keep saying it kills you, but they are the ones looking sick and as if they have starved themselves. In addition to that: There are supplements they should take. I know, too much meat isn't healthy either, but nobody said I'll have to eat it exclusively. I do what's in my nature as an omnivore and eat everything - it's also fucking delicious. Vegans and vegetarians are also fucking crybabies at restaurants - everyone hates them.

>>575147124
Murder is an act between two equals that is committed in malice. Cows do not have a concept of murder and we do not consider killing cows for sustenance to be murder.
>>575147963
If you want guilt free meat, buy a calf, show it a wonderful few years of life living in the best conditions you can provide, then kill the beast in the most humane way possible. Only then will you realize how prohibitively expensive treating animals as humans is.
>>
>>575147571
But we literally do not have to anymore, nothing is going to come and "dethrone" us if we don't eat meat. I am not some fucking wolf that relies on hunting prey to survive, I am not a primitive human, I (we can all) survive just fine without animal products.

food in the form of animal flesh is a much more efficient way of nourishing the body than vegtables alone. keep in mine that chimps, one of the smartest animals on the planet, will actively hunt and kill other monkeys for food, while gorillas are strictly vegetarian, and are about as intelligent as your average 3 year old

There are lots of extremely healthy vegans, it's basically proven to be actually better for you. Just look up vegan body builders, you can be just as, if not more healthy as a vegan,

>No one said i'll have to eat exclusively.
The point is I don't think we should be eating it at all, to me I can't see why something has to die just for my pleasure. Like, i'm not even that big of an animal person, I just can't justify murder.

I guess those are not big deals, compared to all the animal suffering. But this suffering has been always in nature, and it will stay doesn´t matter what you do.
It´s like pretending to reduce CO2 by banning cars in a world full of vulcanoes.

Evolution on this planet is an endless, tedious battle between organisms slowly adapting to reach superiority over the planet and its inhabitants. Refusing to eat meat is a spit in the face of every organism that existed in the chain that allows you to be the dominant species you are today.

Being a vegan or vegetarian trivializes every caveman that died in the frozen wastes without finding food and every prey animal that was sacrificed to ensure the continuation of a predator species.

You are the sum of millions of years of this savage battle, and to refuse your right as the alpha creature of this planet is not only an insult to every predator that is vying for this position, both those prey species that support their existence.

You're literally built for it. All negative effects are from processed meat (something brainwashing vegans tend to skip) If you hunt you're doing the ecosystem a favour (depending where you are and what you hunt)

You literally kill millions of organisms every day of your life.

You, your, home, and everything you own is either made of or covered in dead things. meat byproducts are everywhere and in everything, from chewing gum to your chair. We kill things to simply exist. It's inevitable.

Poaching, animal cruelty and sport killing can all be things that are reasonable to fight against, but if you are eating the animal it's life has not got to waist.

If we didn't kill them they'd never ahve been alive in the first place fag.

I raise my own cattle and pigs and hunt deer for meat. My cows are grass fed and the pigs eat damn well too. No hormones or artificial bullshit here. My animals live a better life than they would have otherwise. Deer overpopulate the area I'm in due to no natural predators. No bad feels here about meat eating. We're omnivores and need a mix of plants and animals to be healthy. Just don't get your meat from a supermarket or other mass-produce shithole.
>>
>>575147292
Ok fine, supplements. Complete proteins can only be found in meat however, not other foods, you'd have to consume severel plants to form the needed aminos for your body, now you run into issues with water displacement for soils and such. There's always a down side.
Supplements are fine and all, but it's a slippery slope, say everyone is forced into supplements and meat production vanishes because "we can do it with tech now" then one day we hit a financial crash and all these supplements dry up. Then there's no meat as well.
We are omnivorous, we thrived off this. The nutrition from our omnivorous diet has allowed our species to develope advanced brain function allowing us to become apex predators, top of the food chain.

You won't find sympathy here.

>>575146457

Cattle and poultry deserve to live, no matter for how short a time. But these animals wouldn't even exist if we didn't raise and slaughter them.

I love to discuss with vegans because you actually are right, so the debate represents a challenge.

Could you tell me, please, what do you think about eating plants?
And don´t use the "we don´t know if they feel"; if that´s an argument, any man from the middle ages can beat veganism.

Humans are omnivores, back at the dawn of man we were scavengers back in Africa. Most of us made due with what we had. Like bone marrow and wild flowers. So we couldn't afford to be picky then. Now with the recession, meat is a valuable source for protein, and lots of cow, and chicken is good for developing families in the ghetto. I know from experience, my mother could feed my whole family for up to three days with a crock-pot and 14 dollars for meat and mirepoix. I was poor then, and I'm poor now, so each morning I make a simple meal, containing everything I need to survive at my minimum wage job. I can't choose not to eat meat OP because if I did I would fucking starve, and for what? A couple of vegetarians/vegans or whatever the fuck you're calling yourselves nowadays, aren't going to stop animal farming. So why fucking bother? There is always going to be a supply and demand for delicious meat so just accept it and buy yourself a turkey leg or some shit.

OP, just by reading your postst I can confirm that you've gone totally out of your mind. Please consider to become normal again. Meat is healthy and it tastes good. Have you ever sat by a chicken and took a good look at it? I have. These animals are made to eat, they can't do anything except procreating and being an easy pray. Get real OP, becoming a vegan will result in you becoming a vegetable because it isn't healthy and against all laws of nature.

Because humans are the stronger animal! It's natural to eat other animals just like the lion eats the zebra! We are just technologically more advanced which gives us even more right to rule animals...

I'm pretty sure I defined murder at the beginning of my post so I found it weird that you continue to use that word like it means something to me.
Yes we should eat brain dead people, continue the circle of life and whatnot.
Why stop at kids? There are such things as mentally handicapped adults, why not eat them too?
>There is no such thing as humane killing when there is no reason. That cow wouldn't have to die.
So you are saying that if I were to engineer a gene into a cow that, once presented with a trigger chemical, would shut down the brain slowly over the period of 8 hours after first putting the cow to sleep it would not be humane? I find that hard to believe.

the bacteria and amino acids we digest from meat products aid the immune system from the same bacteria that is airborne from the waste produced from the same animals.

But thats fine I guess, if this is what you believe campaign for it instead of whining about it on 4chan, you might make a difference someday if you really try.

I think that just by living we're all sort of murderers, since 2003 over 140,000 other innocent human beings have been slaughtered in wars we were involved in, and thats just civilians, if you view the soldiers as innocents too, which could be argued, the figures even higher, we kill for resources like oil from other countries and then waste in on stupid shit like diving around to stupid shit and making plastic, it's all fucked.

>>575146457

It depends on your biology and what it can take.

I, for example, cannot digest (most) animal protein properly. Just not built for it. Fish, however, is fine, so I stick to that and everything else nature provides.

Some people NEED red meat, or their body breaks down.

Really? Follow your biology's needs.

HOWEVER: emotions have nothing to do with it. Science: Nothing is lost, nothing is created, all is transformed. You wanna live? Eat. You eat? You are taking resources away from someone else to produce something. Chances being, offsprings.

I will give you a reason for eating: Evolution & survival.

WHAT you eat, is up to what your body can take.

Emotions got nothing to do with it. Eat if you wanna live.

Meat is lame. It's a scam. They pump meat with addictive chemicals in usa and Canada to get people addocted. That's why people always obsess over meat and how much eat etc...

A few months after I went veggie I started to see food differently and realized that all of the books, documentaries etc were right.

Cows don't have morals nor do they understand what morals are. If however you gave a Cow a "Theory of Mind" then your argument about "murder" would be correct. However, cows do not have this so this eliminates our Morales applying to them. Morales only come into play with human-human interaction because no other animal has the an equal mental capacity.

It's not about whether or not we need to kill them it's more then that. Biggest factors is the economy. Not everyone can afford a diet without meat especially in developing countries

It generates jobs, it is good for you and since humans are omnivores we get a lot of essential nutrients from meat. If you feel bad for the animal, don't.

I stopped eating meat at 19 im 20 now so it hasn't been very long. i just couldn't stand the thought of living beings being treated like nothing more then a not yet dead piece of food. And to be honest i would eat meat if i were to go live with a tribe of some sort in the outscirts of afrika or asia for a while and that would be their way of life because the slaughtered animal woul've at least had a life in the wild but not like this, not if animals are treated as mass products, not if i get a disease wich cant be cured because i got resistant to the medication purely because it was thrown in the animals food. Humanities lifestyle of constant consuming is the cancer wich is slowly killing the planet and i wont be a part of it.

Then why eat it? Not a vegetarian myself, but why bother if you don't feel good about it? Nobody is forcing you (and if so, grow some balls).

Also; start thinking in grey scales, not only black and white. You could eat meat only a couple of days of the week, without going full veggie. You can have the bonus of not feeling (as much) guilt, as well as not having to force people to cook a special meal for you if you're over for dinner and having to explain yourself over and over.

Absolutely right. But that's not a problem of veganism, that's a social problem regarding distribution of wealth.

I evolved as an omnivore. My teeth and digestive system reflect that result of millions of years of evolution.

I need no sanction to be what the universe manifested me as. I contemplate my chickens, who also are designed omnivores. Ever see a hen find a nest of babby rats? They flip 'em in the air then swallow them. Nature is life perpetually recycling life. All is transient, and due to entropy all life dies one way or another. Death makes room for and feeds more life. My not eating animal life will not change the death rate because life implies death.

I shall therefore eat what I will. I don't care what OP eats or does not eat. Nature will eventually recycle us both eternally.
