1.) 10B animals killed in factory farms yearly

2.) These are sentient livestock animals.

3.) There is no evidence they're any less capable of feeling pain than human

4.) Mechanized livestock producing is the single greatest source of human facilitated suffering known.

5.) India has the highest percentage of both vegetarians, the highest percentage of vegans, and the lowest rates of meat consumption, by choice, of any country in the world.

6.) Thus Indians are responsible for minimizing suffering by conscious choice manifesting in action more than any other developing or developed population.

7.) The higher rates of vegetarianism are not incidental for unrelated reasons; India has a history since antiquity of secular, legal edicts for minimizing suffering thru avoiding production of meat by refusing its consumption:

"One can never obtain meat without causing injury to living beings, he should therefore abstain from meat. Reflecting on how meat is obtained and on how embodied creatures are tied up and killed, he should quit eating any kind of meat. The man who authorizes, the man who butchers, the man who slaughters, the man who buys or sells, the man who cooks, the man who serves, and the man who eats – these are all killers. They is no greater sinner than a man who, outside of offering to gods or ancestors, wants to make his own flesh thrive at the expense of someone else's".
—Manusmriti, 5.48-5.52

8.) Ergo, Indians are the most civilizationally advanced people.

Killing is not inherently wrong.
Murder is wrong because it goes against human moral intuition, and causes rifts in social order.
Animals aren't humans.
Therefore killing animals is not inherently wrong.

Suppose for the sake of contradiction that vegetarianism is sophistication. India would be sophisticated. But India, by definition, is not sophisticated. This is a contradiction, hence vegetarianism is not sophistication.

In all Abrahamic religions God says human can eat any animal animal since animals don't have soul their pain don't account as sin.(after all Abrahamic religions born in deserts,they don't have vegetables to eat so God said like that)
In all dharmic religions God?said everything thing is manifestation of God so you have to watch your actions so we are afraid of doing bad karma by killing animals that's why we have more vegetarians.

yeah, pretty much
So is murder ONLY wrong because it isn't beneficial to society?

Interesting.
>>51045686
Depends on the kind of meat, on how much meat, the rest of your diet, how much you smoke, etc.There's so much wrong with this sentence.

Is there anything objectively wrong with eating dead humans?

>So is murder ONLY wrong because it isn't beneficial to society?

Killing people is bad because most people don't want to be killed, and they get upset when people they like are killed. It's sort of agreed upon that we therefore won't kill one another.

Animals on the other hand don't reason and kill each other all the time, so it's generally considered okay to kill them. Harming animals only becomes a problem when it upsets people. That's why you can kill as much cattle, sheep, and kangaroos as you like but as soon as you dock a puppy's tail they march you off to court.

I work with a vegan dude out here and its really fun to watch him try and explain to the poor locals that he actually chooses not to eat animal products because of factory farming and environmental impact.

That being said, don't be such a queer.

>>51044015
Who gives a fuck? Animals suffer so we can eat meat; Arabs suffer so we can have oil; Africans suffer so we can have diamonds. That's just the way it is.
But Indians suffer for no reason.

Thats what your whole post sounds like
What are you on
Animals do not eat the ones who they think are like them, unless one is a psycho, and have also seen mourning their dead ones

Killing simply for your own pleasure or profit is even worse than killing because you think you're country will be better off.

That never happened
Instead all the 'intellectuals' from the west were predicting india would balkanise and and drown in civil war in not more than 20 years after independence
