  • They eat Vegan food - you should be thanking us.
  • they eat the grass and did it well. In about 3 months time Ill get the butcher to come and put the next steer in the freezer. Wake up you fool what do aminals do to survie? Im yet to see any vegan last 20 seconds in a fight.
  • If you recall "Temple Grandin" there are certainly more humane methods of raising animals for consumption, but not all producers see the value.
  • They were being all tasty and stuff and refusing to hop into my mouth. *** Seriously, though: I eat very little meat (I DO eat meat, probably averaging two or three meals a week), and for the environment's sake, the amount of meat that people consume SHOULD be very much less than it is. *** I'm also all for the idea of cloned meat. IF you have a way of producing meat that doesn't require killing animals, then of course you should use it.
  • Are we back to Soylent Green again?
  • They provide sustenance to us. Just as they have for millions of years. It is the way of our world. 11/12/22
    • Shadow
      It is the way of barbaric people and not the world.
    • dalcocono
      Oh you again. Another nonsensical platform to expose "corruption" I suppose.
    • Shadow
      Corruption exists in the world unfortunately which some people are unaware of. They should be aware of corruption because of what people are doing wrong. If you can’t admit to the wrongdoings of people in general you’re in denial
    • dalcocono
      Uh-huh. "Corrupt and barbaric" meat eaters offending a small minority by eating a hamburger. Research "food chain" and see how it all works and where we fit into it.
    • Shadow
      I mentioned corruption because you brought it up in your previous response. Barbaric is the right word for people who kill animals for food. Not everyone eats meat. There are vegetarians in the world as well. If you have a pet animal in your house you would not like it if someone killed your pet for food. It’s the same thing but unfortunately some people don’t think that animals have the right to live their life the same as humans.
    • dalcocono
      The vegetarians in the world are entitled to their food choices, just as the omnivores are entitled to theirs, without judgmental petas calling them names. Once again, research the planets food chain. It is known as symbiosis. Many trillions of beings on the planet eat meat in one form or another. Humankind are not the only omnivores on the planet.
    • Linda Joy
      Every human over the age of 10 knows corruption exists. But you really should educate yourself on the topics you post before you post them.
    • Army Veteran
      Animals have no "rights". If you want to put animals and humans on the same level, look at the animals you're so concerned about: cows, chickens, pigs, and others that are raised to provide food for people. These animals are Herbivores - their teeth are designed to eat plants. Some animals in the wild are Carnivores - their teeth are designed to eat meat. Humans are Omnivores - their teeth are designed to eat both plants and meat. The trouble with people like you is that they think and act emotionally while the rest of the world uses common sense to think logically.
    • Shadow
      Army Veteran, if you are addressing me, animals do have a right to live. It takes an immoral and barbaric person to fail to understand that animals have the right to live. There are vegetarian people as well as those who eat meat. Vegetarians respect the life of animals but meat eaters don’t. There’s a difference between the two types of eating habits in people. Without emotions you are nothing. To think of the emotions in all of life on Earth is being a sensible person. There is nothing logical about our choices in what we eat.
  • There’s a powerful story about a little boy walking along the bank of a river. He sees a crocodile who is trapped in a net. The crocodile says, “Would you have pity on me and release me? I may look ugly, but it isn’t my fault, you know. I was made this way. But whatever my external appearance, I have a mother’s heart. I came this morning in search of food for my young ones and got caught in this trap!” So the boy says, “Ah, if I were to help you out of that trap, you’d grab me and kill me.” The crocodile asks, “Do you think I would do that to my benefactor and liberator?” So the boy is persuaded to take the net off and the crocodile grabs him. As he is being forced between the jaws of the crocodile, he says, “So this is what I get for my good actions.” And the crocodile says, “Well, don’t take it personally, son, this is the way the world is, this is the law of life.” The boy disputes this, so the crocodile says, “Do you want to ask someone if it isn’t so?” The boy sees a bird sitting on a branch and says, “Bird, is what the crocodile says right?” The bird says, “The crocodile is right. Look at me. I was coming home one day with food for my fledglings. Imagine my horror to see a snake crawling up the tree, making straight for my nest. I was totally helpless. It kept devouring my young ones, one after the other. I kept screaming and shouting, but it was useless. The crocodile is right, this is the law of life, this is the way the world is.” “See,” says the crocodile. But the boy says, “Let me ask someone else.” So the crocodile says, “Well, all right, go ahead.” There was an old donkey passing by on the bank of the river. “Donkey,” says the boy, “this is what the crocodile says. Is the crocodile right?” The donkey says, “The crocodile is quite right. Look at me. I’ve worked and slaved for my master all my life and he barely gave me enough to eat. Now that I’m old and useless, he has turned me loose, and here I am wandering in the jungle, waiting for some wild beast to pounce on me and put an end to my life. The crocodile is right, this is the law of life, this is the way the world is.” “See,” says the crocodile. “Let’s go!” The boy says, “Give me one more chance, one last chance. Let me ask one other being. Remember how good I was to you?” So the crocodile says, “All right, your last chance.” The boy sees a rabbit passing by, and he says, “Rabbit, is the crocodile right?” The rabbit sits on his haunches and says to the crocodile, “Did you say that to that boy? The crocodile says, “Yes, I did.” “Wait a minute,” says the rabbit. “We’ve got to discuss this.” “Yes,” says the crocodile. But the rabbit says, “How can we discuss it when you’ve got that boy in your mouth? Release him; he’s got to take part in the discussion, too.” The crocodile says, “You’re a clever one, you are. The moment I release him, he’ll run away.” The rabbit says, “I thought you had more sense than that. If he attempted to run away, one slash of your tail would kill him.” “Fair enough,” says the crocodile, and he released the boy. The moment the boy is released, the rabbit says, “Run!” And the boy runs and escapes. Then the rabbit says to the boy, “Don’t you enjoy crocodile flesh? Wouldn’t the people in your village like a good meal? You didn’t really release that crocodile; most of his body is still caught in that net. Why don’t you go to the village and bring everybody and have a banquet.” That’s exactly what the boy does. He goes to the village and calls all the men folk. They come with their axes and staves and spears and kill the crocodile. The boy’s dog comes, too, and when the dog sees the rabbit, he gives chase, catches hold of the rabbit, and throttles him. The boy comes on the scene too late, and as he watches the rabbit die, he says, “The crocodile was right, this is the way the world is, this is the law of life.” There is no explanation you can give that would explain away all the sufferings and evil and torture and destruction and hunger in the world! You’ll never explain it. I do agree that if we ate less meat and brought an end to factory farming, then not only would be reduce the emissions for this, but also lessen animal cruelty, and have healthy food to eat as it wouldn't be pumped full of GMO, and so leading to healthier humans. Personally, I could probably become vegetarian if I was faced with killing animals, so I'm a hypocrite. Even a blade of grass makes screams when cut, but instead of using sound, it uses scent to express it's distress, so the smell we like, is actually the grass suffering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suGk8eZyN34
  • Do you use "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" butter spray? (Psssst, psssst...)
  • The Lord God placed animals on this earth to be eaten. Just as He made grains to by grown and eaten He also made animals to supply people with meat. Do not defy His word.
    • Shadow
      You're not much of a "thinker" if you're going to waffle on with your religious bull$hit. Religion is sometimes the cause of violence and hatred as your answer says it all. Animals have the right to live and it's people like you who have a problem with that. Whenever a religious person is asked to prove their god, they will usually mention the fairytale bible as an excuse which means nothing. You and your imaginary "god" belongs in the imagination meaning not real and that you're delusional. I'm not against religious people. I just say exactly how they are. You can't prove your point that there is a "god" because it's all in your head. When you say "do not defy His word", you mean to say do not defy the word of some bull$hitter. It's people like you that don't know anything about respecting life and it sounds like you need a lesson in that. People who eat meat don't realise that they are barbaric and that a life has been ended by another as a way of making themselves survive which is the wrong way. Religious people like you are wrong in the head with no idea of how wrong it is to kill. You have no sense of morality and that's your problem. There are some people in this world who will defend the rights of animals while others go against those rights because they are immoral.
    • Thinker
      I am so glad you have the right and freedom to rant and whale the way you want. Someday you just might have to eat your words. It is not possible to talk to a person with your thinking about the joys of having Yahweh in their lives so I won't even try. You have a great day.
    • Shadow
      Actually it’s you who is ranting religious bull$hit so speak for yourself. Yahweh is all in your head. It’s a load of bull$hit.
    • Thinker
      Shadow why do you fear Yahweh so much you have to rant trying to build yourself up. Sorry to tell you but you lose!
    • Shadow
      I do not fear what does not exist. What makes you think I fear an imaginary friend of yours? You lose on this one because religion is bull$hit and you are delusional. People who believe in an imaginary "god" are delusional. I do not rant. You should listen to yourself rant which you do not realise. You obviously have the wrong idea about me by saying that I fear your imaginary Yahweh. You can not prove what you claim exists in your mind as you fail to show physical evidence. Religious people like yourself will always lose because you're all so involved in the imagination that you so desperately want to be real.
    • Thinker
      You lose again! You show your fear in the fact you have to resort to profanity to show your stand. Back in the 1970s I was as you claim to be now. Yahweh proved to me one evening He is real and He is love. No, it was not any kind of life-threatening thing I was sitting watching TV. I have never doubted since then. I speak from knowledge not emotion. I hope, no, I pray you will have a similar awakening.
    • Shadow
      You’re a total brainwashed idiot. Why do you keep saying I fear? I do not fear your imaginary Yahweh so shut up with that. Somebody brainwashed you into believing an imaginary Yahweh and you are stupid enough to believe in such bull$hit. You are unable to prove your imaginary Yahweh. Don’t talk to me about awakening. The same as religious people you expect others to believe in the same as you but that’s not how people work in reality
    • Thinker
      This conversation has gotten way off topic. I answered based on the subject and my beliefs and teaching. If you do not care for my answer that is your problem not mine. You have a good day.
    • Shadow
      The reason why it’s off topic is because your answer got religious when you mentioned your imaginary Yahweh and I was trying to get a point across about that. It’s not my problem you went religious with your answer as that was off topic.
    • Thinker
      Just curious but what are your educational backgrounds, and age?
    • Shadow
      Why do you want to know that? It’s not your business to know those details about me.
    • Thinker
      I figure you are just some smart ass know it all kid of about 18 y.o.
    • Shadow
      Wrong. I am not 18. I don’t know it all and nobody knows it all.
    • Thinker
      You are so correct, no one knows it all but many young people think they do. I am just wondering from where you get your understanding and viewpoints. I too am not 18, in fact I am 84, so I have been around the pond a few times as well as across it.
    • Shadow
      My understanding and viewpoints come from my years of experience with people
    • Thinker
      Same with me. People give us experience, what we do with it is what is most important.
    • Shadow
      True
