Humans shouldn't eat meat. Do you agree ?
« on: 28/11/2009 02:18:15 »
Why don't you take this serious ??
Cos of your meat foods.
you are becoming the main cause of Killing Animals.
Let the food chain continued by wild animals in ecosystem.
being Science people why do you eat ??


You all are foolish people.
You can't even understand MORELS.


When an animal is struggling for life. we should let it go cos it got right to live.
but cos of you eat meat people KILL them to earn money.

Stupidity of mankind is Infinite.
Einstein was correct.


NOW cut your own hand and know the pain of those ANIMALS !!


My message to all meat eaters / to human Carnivores.

hi,my name is Kiran.I am 20 male.
I used to eat meant when I was little Kid.when I don't even know what is meat ?? LOL
I know it tastes good but .. I gave up at the age of 7.

but than i have seen a goat was being killed as religious scarifies.
I have seen head of a goat on a plate.
than my conscious mind awakened when I was 7 years old boy.Now I don't even eat an egg. I don't even smoke or drink ha ha ha ha....
I belong to a Hindu religion where I can eat meat but I have changed minds of my family from meat eaters to vegetarians.

Ha..Ha...Ha.. LOL

But lots of animals got extinct due to hunting.

as Discovery Channel says "when buying stops Killing too"

Please people "The Nerd and Science people" Please stop eating meats ..

Can't you ??

I cry all the time for this innocent animals.

What this animal has done to you ??


They want to live like us ... don't you think ??

Guys stop it !!




our planet is not same as it used to be ...

SAVE them !

Stop eating animals you human Carnivores !!

HELP them !


I want to form a Powerful team, the mission of this team is to stop Killing animals worldwide.

Today we rule Earth. before us the world belongs to them.
 
SAVE out planet form extension of Evolved species.

Let this guy do all the job ... for food cycle in ecosystem.

   


Responsibility was given to them by nature Not to humans.

and some people make things from Animal skin. Please stop buying those goods.


What should I do to stop all this ?





Look at those bio weaponry systems ... Humans can't kill like that cos humans evolved to do smart things.

When you go to hotels say you don't want any meat.

we have not evolved to this ..



I request all to stop eating meat.

Let me put in this way LOL
In religious way LOL.
GOD sent me to advice and stop you guys not to eat meat.
If you don't listen to me YOU GO TO HELL.

telling me to stop eating yummy meat is like me telling ewe to start eating it again.

There are actually some good reasons (for animals welfare) to eat them.....I just need reminding of them....

I am also a meat eater have no problem with vegetarians or vegans.
 It is not my place to choose for someone else or demand that they stop eating meats... seems to me that there are things in the bible that tell us to eat meat and what animals should not be eaten... but this forum is not a religious platform.
 I do however respect your belief and believe you have the right to eat as you wish according to your religion... so long as it does not harm others in the process.

I know lots of people who are vegans and vegetarians.. which is nice.. but not for me.

I've never heard a good reason to stop eating meat, and trying to say i'll go to hell if I do eat it is the least effective argument you could give me since I have also not heard a good argument for the existence of a god/s.

Humans are omnivorous, we have been for our entire existence. Why, and who do you think you are, to question nature???

I object to the waste of any food, but not to eating meat.

Deep inside your mind it sleeping. it's not awaken yet what is it ??

it's sympathy and mercy for innocent animals.

it's OK when we get lost in forest and don't have any thing to eat.
But you don't love animals and don't have sympathy and mercy...
WHY ?
so desired for meat ..??
it causes lots of diseases.
like some say cancer.
some worms stay inside fresh meat... !! so, some people cook it LOL

I'm allowed to eat meat. My astro sign is Lion.

But i do make a point of not eating any endangered species. I just stick to cow/pig/chicken/turkey/sheep and occasionally deer/ostrich/kangaroo/elk/duck/pigeon/bunny rabbits

I apologize in advance to all species I forgot to mention [:P]

I killed a pig and a chicken with my own hands already when I was young (I come from a family of farmers).
I haven't killed a cow or a sheep yet since a law was introduced in Belgium that animal slaughter (exception of fowl) could only be done by a professional butcher with a licence to kill animals shortly after I killed the pig.

I didn't feel very comfortable afterwards, probably due to my age (about 13 years old when killing the pig), but the bacon was yummy.

WOW what a experienced killer.
you might even kill people to fill your belly when you get lost in forest with your friends.

COZ you don't have sympathy and mercy.
you don't know the value of life.
and you study biology.

CAN YOU create life ??
with out using any lab DNA or any thing !!
YOU CAN"T !!

I have somewhat slight moral objections towards killing humans for food, but if i get lost in the forest with my friends, I'd definitely try to kill an animal to survive.

And yes I can create life, it's called unprotected intercourse [:P]
Furthermore, I create life yearly, when i cross breed and pollinate my collection of carnivorous plants.

What if you can't find an animal ?
in your way of creating life of plants you are correct.
But I am talking living animals or human can you ?

Mr.copy cat you just copied the style of Nature.
Without using methods of nature can you create ?
YOU CAN't aha haha aaha hhaa ha ha ha .......

Example: just take a knife can cut one of your hand.
Can you feel the pain ?
can you ? (Ok don't tell me that you would remove pain receptors from your skin)

When any animal is struggling to survive or to live. it got rights to live OK.

WHO the hell are you to kill ??

YOU can't create life without using nature techniques.

or Human copied techniques from Nature. 

you should understand pain and sufferings of all living thing.
than one day you would understand.

Different cultures eat different meat and vegetation, that I am prepared to accept, but do not accept hunting wild animals to the point of extinction, or to near extinction, nor do I accept hunting wild animals for useless medicines.

Therefore, I, like Nizzle, eat only meat from animals reared for the purpose (beef, lamb, pork, chicken etc.) and those which are culled out of necessity e.g. venison.

That arguement would work, if plants had a nervous system to a linkage with a brain-capacity.

Then think of everytime you go to KFC... then bring up the rights of animals. I've seen footage of them being boiled alive when they are supposed to be incapacitated. Workers deny all knowlegde. As usual.

They don't want to impede their own identites.

GOD sent me to advice and stop you guys not to eat meat.
If you don't listen to me YOU GO TO HELL.

Mr. SBC;

You pictured a Lion, a Tiger, and a Leopard. I just have one question I'd like to have answered:

Are all Lions, Tigers, and Leopards going to Hell?
And what about all birds of prey?
And Bears, Monkeys, Sharks,.......

My goodness, there won't be any room left in Hell for any of us humans will there?????????

Go out and order up a nice juicy medium rare porterhouse. Believe me, once you enjoy one, you'll change your tune.

I've already spoken about veganism to a few people on the forums privately & openly criticise the defense of using animal produce in all forms, including leather, isinglass, honey, dairy, eggs, meat, including that of fish.. anything that has a nervous system, that has the capability to feel pain, should not be made to do so in order to serve human ends. There are several reasons for this:
  • The main crux of my argument is this: Using animal products is unnecessary & causes suffering. Suffering for any dog is bad, so why is it not bad when it is a cow? They have comparable levels of intelligence (but I disagree entirely with the idea of using intelligence to determine how well something should be treated) & most likely the same level of sentiency.
  • There is no "natural" diet of a human being any more than there is a human "nature". What does that even mean? If you examine many different cultures, historically and recently, you'll find that any recent, Western models of understanding human "nature" are disproved so many times that they can't be applied universally. If human nature is to be an omnivore, then what is the nature of this culture?
    http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/life/2005/01/07/stories/2005010700080200.htm
    or indeed large sections of India which are vegetarian or vegan. Our nature is not the same as what we are currently, or what the norm is. Appealing to nature as a justification for a moral issue is a fallacy: see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appeal_to_nature
    You still think meat eating is natural? Then go ahead & eat that chicken raw. That's how it's eaten naturally.
  • While veganism can be just as healthy or unhealthy as the Western omnivore diet, it certainly promotes good health in Western countries. The only nutritional problems vegans have are vitamin B12 & D deficiency; both can be supplemented. B12 is produced by bacteria which animals carry, which omnis then eat. Vitamin D is a problem in places where there is a lack of sunshine or if your skin is dark.
    The amounts of fruit & vegetables a typical vegan will consume is probably from between 1.5 to 2 times as much as a typical omnivore. Although I hate the whole antioxidant craze, they are full of them, and protect against cancers, obesity, & heart disease - in other words, the health issues most common to Westerners. Meat, milk & eggs on the other hand, are typically consumed in far greater quantities than we are equipped to deal with - leading to the problems that a vegan diet can help fight.
  • It is better environmentally. A vegan will use much less land & water than an omnivore, though I appreciate that some areas that are unsuitable for growing crops can be used for grazing animals.
  • We have a moral duty to not cause harm to animals. Whether you value them as being similar to humans or not, they at least should have the right of non-interference - in other words, we should leave them alone. Anyone approaching moral would not buy bananas knowing that it supports exploitation of other humans in third world countries for example, because we recognise that inherently that human has a right, at least, to not be exploited. You would not exploit an animal you know & have a friendship with - why does that animal deserve your non-interference, but other animals have no right over their own body?
  • There is no question of desertion. What did an animal do, except exist as the animal it is, to live a miserable life? Nothing. It did not choose to be the animal it is any more than you chose to be the animal you are - you could easily have been that animal, & you would not want to be killed. Luck & chance is the reason we are in the position we are & is the same reason that animals are in the position they are in.

I've said this before, & I'll say it again: unfortunately science has been misused to justify moral atrocities. The institutionalised, widespread suffering by animals is the currently the worst moral atrocity. I urge you all to not let science be misused & no longer finance the suffering.

SBC, I wouldn't call omnivores fools, but I'd definitely say their thinking is inconsistent, misguided & hypocritical. Fortunately, things change.. people can change. I do not think people actively want to cause suffering to animals. The link between an omnivore lifestyle & causing suffering is difficult to make for some people, because the moral norm is to use animals.

Feel free to ask questions or comment - but I've found once I post such a comprehensive, philosophical attack on the omnivore lifestyle which is consistent with scientific thinking & secular morals people don't often reply. Makes me wonder why, really..

SBC,
Quite a lot of the UK's higher ground is too cold and wet to grow much apart from grass. People can't eat grass so we would starve if we didn't eat animals.

Why does your "moral" crusade want to see me and my neighbours dead from starvation?


By the way I understand morels well enough to know they don't really figure in this discussion.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morchella
More importantly I understand the importance of morals and I don't think it's morally acceptable for you to enforce your point of view on the rest of us.
It's not morally acceptable to cause unneccesary suffering to the animals we eat. We should do our best to look after them humanely (and I know there's some irony to that word).
Please disregard all previous signatures.

Unfortunately, since the demands of meat are so high, conditions for animals are rarely good. & since when is killing something & eating it treating it humanely? Yes, it feels no pain after it's dead, but you can use that same argument to justify the killing of humans. One of the reasons killing things is bad is because you're preventing them from feeling where they otherwise could - enjoying the sunshine, food, to be free. Though to be honest, where most animals are killed for food, it's safe to say it's a mercy killing, given that they are raised in boxes..

What are you views on other animals towards the top end of their food chain?  pick any.. say a crocodile drowning its prey.
Drowning doesn't seem like a great way to go to me. Why is that acceptable just because it is not human? Compare that to say a bolt through the brain, a common effective means of dispatch. I know many farmers, they care for their livestock and take pride in their welfare. How many farmers do you know? Not all animals are raised in boxes. You cant tar the entire farming industry with the same brush. The suffering crux of your argument above is flawed. Sadly my expertise is not in nutrition, so I'll leave that to you to investigate yourself. Set aside your bias, and take a look at arguments "from the other side".


You mention honey.. what is wrong with using/consuming honey? Do you know what honey is? 

Where are you with Jesus feeding 5000 with 5 loaves of bread and two fish?

The killing is necessary for it's food. A crocodile can't be vegetarian & live. Humans don't need to be predators, they have a conscience, & where there are other means of survival they should be used above all else.

It is acceptable because it is free of morality & necessary. The crocodile needs to eat, & does not consider the morality of what it is doing because it can be reasonably assumed it doesn't have a conscience.

I can tar them with the same brush that they all kill animals; if they kill, they are doing something wrong. Welfare isn't enough. You don't raise a child, then one day decide because it isn't good for serving your ends anymore that it can't live. No. It's wrong. In exactly the same way it's wrong to kill an animal - even if you treat it right while it's alive.

Which bit?

I've been a meat eater for nearly 18 years. Only recently have I turned vegan, but I've spent time researching about what goes on in farms, nutrition. The arguments from the other side are morally non-existent or seriously flawed - i.e arguments to evolution. I used to defend it, & I used to think vegetarians were weird. Now I see that they have taken the golden rule & applied it consistently. Treat thy neighbor as thyself. I consider everyone in the world, every sentient creature, my neighbor.

Yes. Honey is food for bees. Not humans.

http://www.vegetus.org/honey/honey.htm

In addition to that, bees are often killed near winter time to cut down on costs. This is wrong for the same reason it's wrong as killing animals.

So, is it more morally defensible to slaughter non-sentient creatures?

"Oh! Whack them. They can't think. What do they care?"

or perhaps,

"I can't think. Therefore I ain't."
There ain'ta no sanity clause, and there ain'ta no centrifugal force ćther.

Yes, it is more morally defensible. Living things can be differentiated from say rocks since it is their intent to stay alive, ordered, & it has specific mechanisms for doing that. So living things must be treated with more respect than inanimate things, & living sentient things should be treated with even more respect than living things. The belief in animal's capability to feel pain, as well as a belief that you should not enslave a sentient creature to serve you, is the foundation of my veganism.

I can already forsee the problem I think you are about to propose, & that's of people in comas, perhaps? They should be treated with respect because they are, or were, capable of consciousness, as well as the angry family members who are definitely still conscious - you'll see when the lawsuit for assault comes through [;D]

If something cannot percieve the world with a consciousness, how can it feel pain?
This is a question I am still asking myself about plants. I plan to research it once I'm back at university. If I find that they do feel pain, I will learn to forage.
