thanks theneo, but my main problem with peta is this;
if they could propose a system that is just as efficient or better than the ones in use today, which would provide the same quality of food or better,
for the same price, i would back them 100%. i dont see them even trying this though, all i can see is OMG. EATING MEAT IS MURDER. STOP IT NOW.
how can they possibly believe they are part of the solution if they dont have any?
Ahh, but you see, PETA isn't interested in a LOGICAL solution to the problem. They are more concerned with their perceived morality issues, than
actually doing something about them. They honestly believe that if they make people aware of how animals are treated, we'll stop eating them, using
their fur, etc.
The point is though, many of us don't really give a #. I know, that we as humans need certain things in our diet, that CANNOT be gotten from
veggies, and/or supplements alone. Also, we are DESIGNED this way by nature...so yes, it is perfectly natural, and moral, for us to eat meat.
Likewise, there isn't a single artificial fur on the market as good as the real thing....
I lump animals into a few different categories...
PESTS-these are things I simply wouldn't hesitate to kill, bugs, spiders, snakes, etc. yes, I realize their place in the ecosystem yada yada....but
I'm still going to get them before they get me...
FOOD-cows, chickens, etc. they are simply a resource, that's it....period.
PETS-animals I'd actually care about and almost treat like a human.
WILD-pretty much anything that doesn't fit into any of the above categories....and they are simply to be appreciated (from afar), and/or ignored.
