I do agree with you, and I have no problem with your point that we can either eat meat or not eat meat - I just do not see it as a moral issue in any
way. These are rules we place upon ourselves, or that agree with society as a whole.
I can give you extreme examples why both of those are wrong, but you already told me not to do that so I'm not sure how to prove my point.
Perhaps the only way to settle the dilemma is truly to go back to a time where you had to slaughter your own cows and pigs to have meat to eat. In
the most basic of senses and in no way dramatized or exagerated or extreme - and not specifically directly to you, but to anyone.... If I was a
farmer who knew you were coming for dinner and slaughtered my prize pig to serve, would you eat it? Would not denying my hospitality also be
"unethical"? would you first ask me how I killed it? Is it then a question of "the lesser of 2 evils"?
In the "guest" role, I'd be screwed either way....
Isn't it also unethical then to pass by the food they have in the supermarket that they put there for you to consume, when you know there are people
starving in the world? The least you could do is enjoy whats available to you, otherwise it will end up in the trash!
They will never stop slaughtering cows, pigs, chickens, deer, and boatloads of fish, and I don't think they should. Cause I like to eat them, and
quite frankly I'm a wimp! I can't kill anything! I'd be more likely to kill a human than a cow/pig/chicken/deer/fish/whateveryoueat cause I can
harbor anger and strong emotion against a human. Animals never did a thing to me... .yet
now you got me rambling and I completely lost my train of thought
I may have failed to make my point...
oh yeah! like I always tell myself, "keep it simple stupid".
Simply: Your morals/ethics are yours. Mine are mine. Mine do not believe this should be a moral/ethical question.
