Forums - General Discussion - Do we really need to kill animals??

I just watched this video and it opened my eyes. you should watch it too, as a meat eater i am now going to give up eating meat completely. Or at least im going to try!.

so to my original question. If meat and such is not needed why do we eat it?. Why do we make all them animals feel so much pain just to feed our taste buds??. Would we like if aliens came and thought of us as nothing but animals and started doing the same to us as we do to pretty much every animal?

BTW if you want to see whats done to the animals that goes into your food watch the video from about 16-17 minutes in (But imo you should just watch the whole thing!) and like the dude says before he starts showing the people the video. if you turn away and dont watch it and you feel its not good on your eyes. Why do you think its good for you stomach??

A cow's fart destroys the ozone. We as humans eat cows so we all don't die. Eating veggies means eating plants which means less oxygen which is necessary for survival.
I eat meat and I save the world :)

so many fallacies in your statements.

Do we need to no, but I can not live without meat. But it makes me wonder, if everyone stopped eating meat what would happen to the animals we raise to eat? Would we just release, have them overpopulate, and eat all of their food sources to die? Or just kill them before they can do that? Now that I think about it eating them is for the best.

Problem is unlike other animals we kill many more then we need. also id like people to watch the video or at least 20 mins of it before replying xD.

How so?



Meat has essential vitamins and nutrients. Barbaric it is indeed but as is nature, I can show a hour video of animals eating other animals in the wild to the same effect as this video that does not mean animals should become vegetarians too, does it?

Without order nothing can exist - without chaos nothing can evolve.

I can show you hyenas ripping a baby gazelle out of the womb.

Some people just have too much time on their hands, if he grew up hungry as shit then he'll eat whatever he can get his hands on including all the meats! :) I'm also pro-cannibalism if we have nothing left to eat for survival for as long as it's fully cooked. The problem is also if all we eat only plants and don't touch animals, we'd run into another problem which would result in overall lower vegetation on the planet which would fuck our human eco system which would end result in pro-hunting and meat eating lol. I think we have a pretty good balance so far.

You'll also excuse me if I don't care about cows being raped by metal insertions if it gives people jobs and give grown ups something to drink since we don't exactly want to suck on our women's tits after they got a baby in them, goat milk is better than cow milk BTW, we should just go that route in the masses IMO.
