    Should you feel guilty for eating meat?

    Post by Guest on August 2nd 2012, 12:07 am

    So, is it right to eat meat? To take the life of something, just so you can eat something with a better taste than vegetables? Or is it justified since humans are at the top of the food chain?

    Sure it is. Its not our fault we were born into the animal kingdom.

    1. I already prayed and asked G-d to get me on a new diet. But apparently, all of his creations eat each other like some sick joke.

    2. I didn't even ask to be born. So all my bad karma is being scapegoated back in time onto Adam & Eve (cuz Karma can do that, YO).

    At the very least you should feel guilty about the horrible things they do to the animals before they kill them.

    Now watch, I'm gonna be marked as an insane PETA person for saying that.

    Has anyone here gone fishing before? And then cleaned the fish?

    Or hunting w/ deer.

    AND P.S. Deer are stupid! You can't help but kill them when they run right in front of your car and then just stand there

    Like Kaotix said, if a toddler went in the front of the road, would you be like "Pfft, what an idiot, he deserves to die."

    I DO think that some people go overboard though.

    1. If you run a restaurant or a grocery store, chances are, you throw away too much meat. You CAN freeze meat so it doesn't go bad...

    2. If you are a consumer, and you think its okay to eat 5 lbs of steak a day, then you should cut back.

    BUT

    1. Contrary to popular belief, being vegan does NOT give you super powers.

    2. I've tried being a vegan/vegetarian. While protein powders are okay for awhile, they can mess with your digestive system unless you take the right vitamins/supplements. It gets expensive.

    3. Eggs are unfertilized. They will never be fertilized after they have come out of the chicken. Though some people like to eat cooked duck embryos/fetuses or whatever they are called, I think its just gross to look at. Still, I would not consider eggs 'meat' and the main reason people wouldn't eat eggs (aside from health reasons) would be that the Hens may be mistreated.

    4. Milk is not meat either. And traditionally, Cows were not necessarily 'mistreated' to get it.

    5. I think in order to become a vegetarian/vegan, one has to adjust slowly, or be raised a vegetarian. Vegetables are digested completely different from meat. Digestive enzymes and intestinal bacteria digest most of your food, so if you just all of a sudden change your diet, you will need specific enzymes/bacteria to digest it for you.

    6. Bottom line: I have found that I feel healthier if I am eating meat than if I am eating Nachos, starch, and beans (ughh). I like protein powders, but I am still not sure how healthy it is.


    There are religions where the people think it is taboo to even eat root vegetables like potatoes because it kills the plant. These same religions preach that the highest ideal a person can have is to live solely on air for nourishment. It is good on paper, but not in practice.

    As a solution, Do you think it would be ethical to manufacture meat from stem cells? I know it sounds shadey, but in this scenario, the scientists are like "Nobel Prize" scientists and would hypothetically succeed in creating this meat (and they would hypothetically be able to do it CHEAPLY)

    Sometimes when I'm at KFC I ask that everybody takes a moment of silence and bow their heads for those brave chickens that died for our hunger

    Nope. While I do feel bad the animals have to die, I don't feel bad because it provides me with food to eat.

    Humans are at the top of the food chain, so no, you shouldn't feel bad for eating animals. Whether it be duck, lamb, cows, chickens etc. they were all put here to satisfy our hunger.

    If animals weren't eaten, then the world would be over-populated with animals. Has anyone here gutted a deer before?

    No, because meat is delicious.

    No! Of course not! We shouldn't be made to feel guilty. It's perfectly natural. Do you think that lion that killed that poor zebra feels guilty? Or what about that owl who killed that mouse for his dinner? Do he feel guilty? No. So we shouldn't either. It's life.

    Besides...think of all those poor vegetables that lay down their lives to feed you vegetarians and vegans!

    Every day, millions of innocent vegetables and fruit get ruthlessly slaughtered, picked, prepared and eaten by vegetarians and vegans alike.

    Help end the violence.
