My step-grandfather never would eat what he called "rabbit food."

Of course he was a junkie/alcoholic/compulsive gambler too, so I always figured his opinions on what was "good" for you were probably a bit skewed. He was a really nice guy though.

Can they really? I think we are mixing nerve/stimulus response with full emotions.


Deep made an excellent point (perhaps unintentionally) in the pets acting weird thread.

Pets may swarm all over an owner and we say "look, my pet loves me" - when in reality it may simply be "source of food, provide me food".

What ??? Animals feel emotions ! It's scientificaly prooved There are 3 parts in a human brain, and one of them is the limbic system, which we share with animals. It's the center of emotions, and without it we wouldn't feel anything. There's also the primitive brain that is found on all animals and humans, especialy reptiles, which is about the reflects that you talked about, and the Neocortex, rational brain, that human has. So yeah. Animals do feel emotions, are humans do.

Here's a link about the limbic brain :
http://www.healing-arts.org/n-r-limbic.htm

This is another link that talks a bit about animals' emotions.
http://www.edwardwillett.com/Columns/animalemotions.htm

So yes, these animals in your plate already dead suffered, felt fear, hurt, depression, etc.

B probably for me.

Last time I talked to my doctor about my diet he told me not to cut meat out. I would eat salmon every day if I could.

A, likely because I think the Western diet is horribly uncreative with vegetables. It's usually prepared in the blandest and tasteless form possible.

When it comes to the few times I can get Asian food, I'll usually eat plenty of vegetable dishes. Now that's good.

And I don't have any conscience problems eating meat. I agree that it's one of the crueler ironies of evolution; that we're "smart" enough to feel sympathy for our prey, but still biologically incapable of eliminating it from our diet. There's a handful of essential nutrients (Vitamin B12 being the most prominent) that you can never get from vegetables.

Pffft, toothy-boy!

With coeliacs and diabetes, there's no way in hell I'm sacrificing another food group. I'd wish to be a vegetarian simply for the animal cruelty issue, but I cannot do it now.

I eat meat of some sort probably nearly every day and my cholesterol is a dangerously low 2.9.

If you have a problem eating mammals or birds then just move down the list of animals, molluscs are weird and different, ever had any sympathy for a squid or octopus Gastropods also are damn weird and have torsion - who wants some snail?

Arthropods have bilateral symmetry like up but with that crazy exoskeleton and those eyes, because they have such a sparse nervous system and not a sensitive epidermis like us they also don't really feel pain.
