I was vegan for a year, but uni got me so stressed I took the easy way out and ate meat again. Im vego now.

My question though, why do we need to care about ethics, morality, empathy.. that sort of thing.
Morally, yes its "bad" to make sentient beings suffer, but what makes something bad or good? How do you know these things are real concepts that should be upheld? How do you know everything isnt just a random series of events and it doesnt matter what happens or who feels what?

Another thing I wonder about is where the line is drawn. We accidentally step on ants all day but nobody cares. We dont know how sentient and ant is. Why does it matter "how" intelligent something is if it can still suffer?

How is a plant suffering different from an animal? Just because of a brain? Brains developed from simple life. When does it become classed as non-eatable?

Did you know mushrooms are closer to being classed as animals than they are plants?

It's hard to feel bad for eating animals when you were raised on a farm where your grandparents used to slaughter cows and chickens regularly.
When I was little I would ask my grandma if I can have chicken for dinner and she would be like "well then go catch one and bring it to me". She would proceed to cut its head off with a kitchen knife and I used to play with the head while she prepared the chicken.
Eating animals and animal products is totally normal to me and I can't seem to get myself to care enough that it hurts them.
Like Louis CK said, I know that it's wrong but I don't care that it's wrong.

abstaining from meat is just totally incomprehensible

literally why would you never want to go near something as fantastic as a juicy, rare steak or fall off the bone, sticky pork ribs?
>>
>>734433261

Because we use the incredibly calorie-efficient, metabolic process called "cooking shit."

Come on mate, if vegetarians were really more healthy then Olympic athletes wouldn't eat meat, strongmen wouldn't eat meat (and fuckloads of steroids), marathoners (some are vegan but most I know, including me aren't) wouldn't eat meat.

If you're super healthy plan was actually super healthy it would be used to get an edge at the highest level of competition. Yes, most anons shouldn't eat the whole chicken, but a shitty vegetarian would be tired from anaemia, lack vital nutrients, and have crazy blood sugar.

So to 4chan this up, vegfag BTFO.

But the way vegans talk and think one of those "slaughtered" animals might have come up with the cure for cancer, or figured out string theory.

~60% of farmed plants by mass is inedible to humans but edible to food livestock
eating animals reduces land area needed to sustain a human population significantly

there are ~1 billion cattle born every year
almost all of these would not be born if cattle were not used for food
as it is better to be alive under any circumstance than to never have been born, it is better to eat cattle than to not

>Plants aren't sentient and they don't feel pain
they are self aware enough to recognize if they are damaged
trees produce resin when they get damaged
grass when cut down produces chemicals to signal their damage
There are plants that litterally bleed and produce a sound like screaming when harmed
also, there are plants that eat meat (e.g. pitcher plants)

at what sentient level do you consider something "sentient enough to not eat"? There are bugs & worms, even fish, which are less sentient than plants. Can you eat them?

taking damage e.g. being cut, prodoces a chemical reaction in every organism and is, in a way, enough to define something as sentient (aware of itself and its situation). Is that enough to not eat it?

Also, there are species who only exist because we breed them to eat. If we would stop breeding them, they would go exstinct. Is genocide of multiple species acceptable in veganism?

Veganism is a healthy lifestyle but in no way morally better than eating meat because of its flawed viewpoints of "living beings"

Nah, Empathy isn't what drives most people to be vegan, it's still a self-gain thing. "I feel good" or "I'm allergic" or "I'm a giant pussy moralfag" Whichever, even if the world changed, it'd be a practicality thing, not a moral/empathy thing.

Ultimately, veganism is an aim. As your image demonstrates, it is essentially impossible to live without animal products.

By being vegan I'm not saying "I never cause animal suffering" because obviously I do. I drive a car. I wear leather belts. What I'm doing is trying to reduce animal suffering as much as I personally can at the moment.

I know other vegans who get special belts instead. I know others who go back to being vegetarian when on holiday in countries where it's culturally too difficult to be vegan at the moment.

That's all fine because veganism isn't a hard and fast rule. It is an aim which each vegan sticks to as best we can? I don't see any denial in that really.

The medical community approves of Veganism. It leads to deficiencies that turn into disease, which means more revenue for doctors and hospitals. By all means, go vegan. It's not like we need your money, but if you're all that stupid and in a hurry to get sick and you are dumb enough to ignore evolution, sure, we'll take your money.

Animals do all sorts of things we consider immoral.

Your implication that we should get moral guidance from whatever animals do is what's logically questionable, not veganism.

Meat is TASTY!
>>
>>734440214
Logic is OK, don't be a retard.
Animals have no will to do or don't do something. People do and therefore are faced with ethical choices like that.

Here's a tougher legitimate question though:

How is it acceptable to let animals eat each other if we can't eat them because they can suffer? I mean, you wouldn't sit idly while a woman was getting raped - it is your duty to act and stop ethically unacceptable acts. So why do we let animals eat other animals?
>>
>>734440269
Well plants don't have a nervous system.

Cows are bred into existence in order to be killed. If we were all vegan there wouldn't be more cows, there'd be fewer.

ok i have a question, Vegans won't eat meat so they eat plants but can a vegan eat a venus fly-trap which itself eats meat??? And plants get nutrients from decayed animals. I mean if even plants eat meat why is it wrong for us to?
>>
>>734440466
not when those humans shouldn't exist in the first place.

7 billion people on this planet is totally unsustainable, and it doesn't help that those impoverished, starving third worlders breed like rabbits to keep the cycle going.

>>734440541

>>734440541
ok but you carnt garentee that they would suvive or that it wouldnt mess you the food chain if we l;eft cows as they are now they would still breed and it would lead to there been more cows we would activly have to kill some to reduce the inital numbers

"ignore evolution" is just the naturalistic fallacy.

With regards health, the best paper I've seen on this is at
http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/89/5/1627S.full
Vegans tend to be healthier in many important ways, such as with diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. We tend to be worse in one important way which is bone density, but the deficiencies which cause this can be easily made up for with a supplement.

>>734440570
I don't really think trying to be "natural" makes much sense or is achievable? Right now I'm wearing clothes that were somehow made from cotton and plastic by a machine. My dinner included frozen mince from a packet, and if I ate meat it would have been frozen beef mince from a packet. There's nothing "natural" about any of this.

If you want to talk about health, see above, but what we consider "natural" really has no bearing on health.
>>
>>734440684
well when the nukes finally fly and civilisation is eradicated, we'll probably need some fodder to attract the big game animals out.
>>
>>734431015
We quit eating chickens goats sheep cows fish deer boars, do you realize how many of those fuckers are just going to disappear? If we aren't eating chicken and eggs or cow's milk cheese there is literally no reason for them to exist. Typical libtard thinking. Think, stupid. We started producing more bison so we can eat the fuckers. Otherwise they a zoo exhibit and circus sideshow.

NUTRITION
When you look at lifespans of people around the world, it's pretty consistent that those countries/cultures with the reputation for being vegan, or eating very small quantities of meats (often using them as flavoring agents rather than main courses), live longer. It's also pretty consistent that many of them don't as high of quality control pickiness, so products like rice are more likely to have a higher insect count than say the States or EU. If your talking health, lesson is eat mostly plant based with a very small quantity of meat (like <= 10% the States/EU typical diet). If you are going to eat animal, your best source health wise is insects. Vegan isn't perfect, but it's a lot closer to perfect than the diets of many. And yes, insects and insect byproducts are not vegan, I'm not promoting that. I'm promoting near-veganism (vegetarian doesn't count, it's the wrong type of animal protein). It's a myth that you need animal for protein. Protein is in everything, and a lot of people get far too much of it. But there's other reasons of nutritional balance that make small quantities of animal beneficial. I don't eat insects myself, just aware they are more beneficial than what I do eat. Maybe some day.

ETHICS
If you are vegan for ethics, and don't mind a slight compromise in nutrition, it's fine. Your still way ahead of heavy meat eaters for nutrition. But that's only if not eating animals matches your ethical standards. Ethics and morality are personally and culturally subjective. There's a lot of "if"s and "but"s that can muddle the water here.

PLEASURE
If you eat for pleasure, than nothing else is relative, eat all the animal you want.

FUTURE
We will be going in a more plant and insect based direction at humanities current growth rate anyways. So it will somewhat work itself out anyways.
>>
>>734440801
Sweet fuck I'm typing like shit tonight.
>>
>>734440658
Haha, fair enough. Yeah I would eat a venus fly trap personally? Because in eating the venus fly trap I'm not harming anything, causing any suffering, etc.
Another common one is would a vegan eat roadkill? Personally, no, because that is a disgusting idea, but morally I'd have no problem with that at all.

i get you there and i agree but we still shouldnt be eating as much as we humans do.

>>
>>734440719
Good point. If there was like a switch that was flipped and everyone was vegan and all the cows that are currently there just sort of roamed wildly, that would be pretty dangerous?
Of course, that's not really realistic. I think what's more likely is as more and more people turn vegan, restaurants etc. order less and less meat, and so slaughterhouses gradually scale down their operations.
I can't see any problem for the environment with that as the cows are so detached from everything else, they're not really part of any ecosystem to speak of.
>>
>>734441095

Not just cows though, sheep, duck, geese, chicken, Kangaroos, etc etc.
>>
>>734441095
touche
>>
>>734441044
Yeah, I'd say so. Other vegans might give a different answer but I can't see much problem with that? To be honest, I can't see much problem if you have chickens and they lay an egg and you find the egg and fry that shit up.

The issue is that that's not the history of the eggs/milk/steaks at the supermarket.
>>
Genuinely curious:
Given the results of plant life responding to stimuli, why do vegans consider it ok to eat plants when they also "feel"?
>>
>>734440676
regardless of how sustainable anything is, who are you to say what should and shouldn't exist? it is what it is anon
>>
>>734431015
Fuck off niggerfaggot
>>
>>734441248


So, the issue is less "eating meat is bad" and more "factory farming is inhumane and cruel"

I can agree on that.

The majority of such studies aren't actually what's reported. I've seen a load of times when a newspaper has put out a story like "plants have music preferences say scientists" and it turns out the paper actually just used "do plants have music preferences?" in order to demonstrate a flaw or nuance in a statistical model, and they used that question specifically because of course plants don't have fucking music preferences.

That said, you've put "respond to stimuli" which plants do. They deliberately curve towards the sun for instance. This isn't feeling pain or thinking thoughts or anything though, as they don't have a nervous system.
>>
>>734441342
Yeah. That's the ultimate crux. That said, I only think dairy/eggs/honey and such can be done humanely. If you're outright killing an animal for food, I wouldn't personally ever condone that.
>>
you know who wasnt a vegan? Darth Plagueis the Wise;: Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic, he could save others from death, but not himself.
>>
>>734441482
An egg is intrinsically not-fertilised though?
>>
>>734441745

So, the line is drawn at nervous system? (I don't know any vegans and am honestly, albeit embarrassingly ignorant to the philosophy behind it)
>>
Eating meat or not, they are both acceptable lifestyles, and a personal choice. Just because you choose one over the other, doesn't mean that you have to impose your choice on others.
>>
>>734440371
The trouble is, many vegans I myself meet DO treat it like a hard and fast rule. I almost never meet vegans who at least produce some form of rationality and don't act like a last-gen SJW, but I know they are out there, like yourself. Which is why I said "top five", to be generous.
>>
>>734440578
>being this fucking retarded
>>
>>734441291
"it is what it is" shouldn't be acceptable though.
>>
>>734442073
mehhhh. I'd say the line is drawn at suffering.

This is now going down a path of biology, which I always feel is intended to be more of a trick than a genuine exploration? I haven't studied biology since A-level. If you have and you've looked into it and you reckon it's impossible for octopus to feel pain or something, and you're going to be vegan and not eat pork and not eat steaks and eat our revolting vegan cheese but still eat octopus...
then great? I personally am going to err on the side of stuff I know doesn't cause suffering. I've found it to be doable and healthy, so don't really need to look into said biology in the hopes of finding suffering-loopholes I can sneak meat onto plate through.

>>734442116
I've never seen anyone "impose" anything. People encourage others round to their way of thinking all the time. That's just what humans do.
>>
>>734441872
Even honey results in a lot of fucked up practices, bees having wings removed and such. Dairy involves repeatedly keeping cows pregnant until they die to keep up with demand

>>734441955
Well if there's a rooster involved it would be fertilised, I guess unfertilised isn't really causing harm if they're kept fairly

I've seen vegan faggots demand the death of all meat eaters.

Suck it OP. You're no more "ethical" then us carnivores. Plants do have their own sentience and feel just like anything else. Just because they don't have a recognizable brain does not mean that they do not feel pain or sense danger or feel fear.

But hay i guess I should expect anything less from a bigoted spiciest like you OP!

>>
>>734442469
Yeah all those problems are with factory production of milk/eggs/honey. That's why I'm vegan.

The line of conversation was around "if" these products came about by other avenues - if you found a dead cow out walking, if you found an egg, if your neighbour keeps chickens and found an egg. etc.

I agree with the current state of milk/egg/honey production, which is why I'm vegan, but in theory I think it is possible to eat eggs and honey in a humane way.
>>
>>734442564
There's a difference between "demanding the death of all meaters" and actually doing that.

I'm not sure any exercise in free speech can be called "imposing."

kek it definitely is.

The cheese in particular took me ages to find one that didn't make me wanna throw up.

Much much easier is the milk and the mince? If you've not tried them yet I'd definitely say give soya milk or meat-free mince a shot.

After that the chicken substitutes are probably the next nicest.

>I get others to argue for me because I can't myself

>>734444056
Yeah I get that. To be honest though a load of people miss having something similar, at least that you can think is similar. So if I'm making a curry I don't want to put just vegetables in it? I want to put something else, like chicken pieces.

There's also the thing of loads of vegan food being just salads and shit, and sometimes I just want a burger.

>>734444224

see above really? Lots of vegans miss the taste and versatility of certain foods, or we're used to cooking with them and it's weird to go without, so we get this.
