Sandman's Comments

I just fail to see where any of this is "Neat".

Also, just going to leave this here:

Call me old fashioned, but I can't ever justify using Wikipedia as a source.

Webster's dictionary defines a "person" as "human, individual —sometimes used in combination especially by those who prefer to avoid man in compounds applicable to both sexes"

I don't know if I agree with the selfish aspect of your argument either. Who are we to say that animals that are omnivores wouldn't eat more meat if it were available? Most canine species can live on plants and plant matter, but prefer meat. Does that make them selfish?

I used deer as a specific example because they are wild. They don't have feed, wouldn't receive injections, nor would you be able to castrate the ones that need to be. They aren't raised on a farm where these things could be easily done.

At the end of the day, humans are the superior species. You may not agree, and I am perfectly fine agreeing to disagree. But I believe that as I sit here, using my thumbs to type, that I sit proudly on top of the food chain.

Webster's Dictionary defines murder as such:

"the crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought"

The key words for me are "person" and "malice"

So I guess for me, I don't consider it murder. Do I think the animals should be abused? No. Should they lead relatively comfortable lives before they become my food? Yes.

I think we agree on the fact that there are things that happen in the industry that definitely shouldn't. And honestly, if an individual is deranged enough to gain some sort of joy from causing animals pain, they should probably seek professional help.

Another question I have for you would be what is your stance on hunting? It's one person and one animal. They've had a chance to roam free, not be caged up, and will ultimately serve as a meal for another animal (in this case, a human). Also, in the case of deer, hunting is a form of population control that allows the animals to flourish and not become over-populated.

Edward, I respect your choice. If eating only plants is something you choose to do, by all means, go for it. I do enjoy my plants as well, but I also prefer to have some meat in my diet.

You're ideas are well thought out and you obviously are well-learned. Thank you for your restraint and not falling back to the "OMGZ MEAT IS MURDER" argument.

I tried to Google around for more information, but it seems all anti-dairy farm information is from the same 3 or 4 biased sources.
