Be present at our table, Lord;
Be here and everywhere adored;
Thy creatures bless, and grant that we
May feast in paradise with Thee.
We thank Thee, Lord, for this our food,
For life and health and every good;
By Thine own hand may we be fed;
Give us each day our daily bread.
Humans see themselves as divine, as having a divine gift which is the soul/spirit/mind/intelligence, and they try to convince themselves that other animals have not received such a gift. They see themselves as chosen because they think they are the only one who have received that gift

Did you know that human beings actually KILL other animals to EAT them ? Don't you find that disgusting ? They even have built factories to INDUSTRIALISE the process of killing the other sentient animals and chop them in small portions that they pack in plastic. WOW. At first I didn't want to believe it but I have seen the proofs. It's 100% true. They eat dead corpses of animals that are made of exactly the same stuff as them, and almost every human being find that this is totally normal. They even encourage their own LITTLE CHILDREN to eat dead corpses of other sentient beings, imagine that... I mean, what do they have in mind ?? Can't they just think for one second ? I am truly out of words..

When fruits are eaten by animals, the seeds are spread thru the land(thru feces).

I'm currently a meat eater but researching vegetarianism for a while. While I really like the taste of meat and feel a bit sad about the thought of giving it up. Lately my thoughts have been slipping toward the supposed responsibility humans have as truly sentient beings (by our own standards/earthly anyway). More and more I begin to despise the killing of other living creatures especially in the industrial way we have it setup, it's really disgusting if viewed from an outside perspective. I understand that different beings kill each other for survival, that's just nature, but at this point in time we have mostly past that stage with our ability for food production. We now are able to choose between meat and vegetarianism, seems like a responsible stance not to kill unless absolutely necessary in respect of life as a whole or something along those lines
It is only the illusory superiority of humans that makes us believe we are meant to be stewards of the Earth.
