Plants don't have nervous systems, they can`t feel pain in any sense of the word and they have no needs other than those for the basic elements that constitute healthy growth.


And what do you make of carnivorous plants that eat insects, small reptiles, and rodents? Or plants that actively engage the world around them, such as trees that control ant populations by releasing chemical signals in times of need? Are they immoral compared to other plants who just sit there and soak up sunlight?

Just because you can half-ass a functional diet from only plants doesn`t make doing so any more moral than eating other animals. You`re still destroying other life to sustain your own. All you`re doing is drawing a perfectly arbitrary line over which lives you find acceptable to consume.

I believe animals should be treated well. I believe when the time comes, they should be killed quickly and painlessly. And then, I believe, they should be delicious.

@Yaezakura

No, a human eating a cow is nothing like a lion eating a zebra. When a lion is hunting it's not thinking about what it could eat instead, or whether eating the zebra is necessary. Humans have the capacity for reason and we can logically reason that when there are viable alternatives at hand (that therefore necessitates the act of eating animals as unnecessary and not based on needs), eating animals is not the `right` thing to do, and is based on the same prejudice as racism etc.

Plants don`t have nervous systems, they can`t feel pain in any sense of the word and they have no needs other than those for the basic elements that constitute healthy growth.

Seeing as you made such fallible arguments I can`t really be bothered anymore. Apologies.
