Still Want Eat Meat Meat Eating Risks - Page 2
While there is overconsumption be a group of people, there are others that are just starting to eat enough meat for a more complete development during childhood. I live in Asia. About 15 years ago, I was a giant in most of these countries at 5'11". Today, I see young kids that are actually taller than me and lots of them. With better and more plentiful sources of food along with medical advancements, we are living longer. My 5'2" wife routinely talks about lack of meat as stunting her growth as a child.
That is what this pretty much boils down to...imprinting human feelings on what is an animal's life. Some try to put themselves in the cow, pig or chicken's position when it comes to certain parts of their existence:
Would I like to be slaughtered so someone could eat me? Of course not.
Would I like to live in closed quarters? Of course not.
Would I like a meal of my ground up dead comrades served to me? Of course not.
Would I like to eat the same food everyday? You wouldn't, but they don't seem to mind it.
Would I like to roll around in my own filth? You wouldn't, but the pigs are down with it.
Would I violently attack potential rivals in area? You wouldn't, but roosters are ok with it and bulls don't seem to mind it.
If my pen mate were bleeding would I try to eat them? You wouldn't, but pigs will kill their own kind if they are sickened or injured.
I don't pretend to understand the animals spirits because they do many things I would never do. I doubt animals fear heart attacks. We will just never see eye to eye on this one as we are in totally different places with regards to animals feelings and how human they are...
Too bad that Buffalo didn't domesticate well because we would have to eat fewer of them and they are more efficient to raise in general. Apparently, they really don't like captivity and don't herd well...maybe that is spirit. I think that if Jesus came to us as a cow that the bovine would be herding us in pens and making baseball gloves from our skins, but it didn't play out that way.
