Default Proud Vegan (Scavenger theory)

Yes you can mock me and call me weak and stupid, and you might think that eating meat and diary is natural. But is it? Is sucking off a cow's tit natural? no. But squeezing into a bucket and then drinking it is? Why is it right to kill pigs and cows, yet sick to kill the next-door neighbours dog, fluffy.

My Question is, where do humans draw the line? You don't have the heart to kill an animal, or strangle a chicken yet you are a constant consumer or red meat and poltry, why can't you kill an animal yet happily go down to the store to buy it's pre-packeged remains? How many of you have stood out in a paddock and shot your dinner? This is what you call the scavenger theory.

In today's sociaty it is unnatural to kill. Therefore unnatural to eat meat. There is no evidence that humans were born to eat other animals, we don't have claws or fangs or ability to run after antelope, a grasing antelople wouldn't even fear us, we are harmless creatures. Yet somehow flesh of an animal is too important to skip from our lives.

Anyone here that would love to work at the slaughter house? Why not? That's where your lovely delicious meals come from, you eat it everyday, it wouldn't be too different from working in the candy store, right?

Much of this is due to today's ignorence. Sure it was fine back 1000 years ago, where everyone had to kill their own meals, back then you could see the intestines fly and blood slpurt in your face, there's nothing wrong with eating a nice cooked cow after a long hard day slaughtering animals, and why wouldn't ya? Mmm, tatses like McDonalds. There is one thing that seperates us from now and 1000 years ago: intelligence. The same thing that seperates us from wolves and lions. We are smart enough to live without going as low as killing, why don't we take advantage of that?

As for animal cruelty, that's another story. This is the almightly scavenger theory. There is also a poll.

I'm not so conscious of the so-called "ethics" of food. I eat just about everything, so what category does that put me under?

BTW, I've always wanted to eat a dinosaur. Mmm mmm, finger licking goodness.

Chimps are our closest genetic relatives and they eat meat so it would seem natural for use to do so. Our intelligence has meant that our teeth don't have to be like carnivores because we can use tools to hunt with. Let everyone eat what they want but don't push personal views down other peoples throat. Mines got a steak already down it.

Oh wonderful, an entire post preaching about the immorality of eating meat, and full of false statements. It's a matter of opinion. It's not unnatural to eat meat, scientific evidence has shown us this (the shape of certain teeth, functions of certain organs etc). It's nice that you're a vegan, but get off your moral high horse.

The first human's had huge canine teeth but now they are incresing smaller. Hence, we as humans no longer have the need to kill animals.

Is there anyone here that understands what I'm trying to get at?
