lol.... Yes..ive seen those PETA videos too...
And just to clarify, Kosher slaughter is the most humane way to kill an animal. Do i support what some slaughterhouses do? No. But in principle, the
basic process of slaughtering an animal according to Jewish Law -slitting the neck, IMMEDIATELY , as in within 2 seconds, leads to unconsciousness of
Whereas the 'common' industrial method of shooting a nail into the animals head does not lead to unconsciousness. The animal is still in a great deal
of pain. And as for why the former method - slitting the throat - leads to unconsciousness, and not shooting a nail into the animals brain; a major
artery passes through the front of a Cow, or a Sheep or a Goats neck (as opposed to a pig, where blood passes through both the anterior and interior
arteries). About 80% of the bodies blood passes through there. So, once this artery is cut, within a minute most of the animals blood pours out and no
blood/oxygen can be brought to the brain; thus, it leads to unconsciousness very quickly. This has already been amply proven. Also, since youre
probably not acquainted with animal slaughter. After an animal gets its neck slit and loses consciousness, its muscles begin to fidget. This is a
automatic response and it isnt a sign of the animals continued pain. It isnt the nicest sight, but its a basic fact of human anatomy. All animals do
this. For isntance, if you were to cut the head of a chicken off, the body might still walk around. It is the muscular memory in the body, and that is
it. The animal is long gone even after the body begins to fidget.
In anycase, what does this have to do with anything? You think that one PETA video is proof of cruelty in Jewish thought? This is your evidence?
You New Agers are literally no different from fundamentalist Christians. You swallow dogma because you think as much as they think, that what youre
now learning is an incontrovertible, indisputable truth; and of course what everyone else believes is "dogma". Newsflash; any belief is a dogma. Even
a belief that tries to avoid any dogmatic belief, is initself, a dogma.
There is only rational thought. And i put rational thought, and reasoning into why assisted suicide can be wrong. Of course, you are allowed to
disagree. But if youre going to disagree, disagree intelligently. Dont tell me im just 'conditioned'. Thats what an unedecuated ignoramus does.
