    Perhaps. Studies have shown that plants can feel pain (in the scientific sense), but they're not sentient beings. True suffering requires a combination of senses. When a cow is drugged up restricted of movement it sees, hears and smells the horrific situation it is in. Suffering is more than just instinctive pain - it is the capability to know how miserable and hopeless your situation is. Animals can suffer, plants cannot.

    I despise the anthropocentric mindset. It is one that we humans have gradually acquired, and has most likely been propogated by the Abrahamic religions and the Bible, which teaches us that the Earth was made for man and animals are here for our convenience only. The idea is that animals don't have a purpose or reason for being other than to feed and serve us. My views on existence couldn't differ more strongly from this and for that reason, I don't see cows, pigs and chickens as existing for the sole purpose of feeding us. I do believe in the food chain and I do believe that it's natural for humans to eat cows, pigs and chickens, but I don't believe that the way we do it today is natural.

    As for all the cases of doctors telling people that they need to start eating meat to become healthy again - I've heard a million of these stories. The problem is that doctors, like anyone else, are biased by their own views and philosophies. If you are a meat-eater, you will believe strongly that meat-eating is correct. If you are a veg*n, you will believe that your decision is correct. Most doctors, like most people, are meat-eaters. So when someone tells a doctor that they are unwell and don't eat meat, it's far easier for a doctor to apply their own personal philosophy and command the patient to eat meat than to spend the time asking questions about how full and balanced that person's veg*n diet is. Because, yes, many veg*ns are clueless about good diet and think they can survive on tofu and bread. A bad vegan is as bad as a bad meat-eater. If an obese person goes to a doctor, the doctor will tell them to cut out the fast food and eat more vegetables. If a bad vegan goes to a doctor, the assumption is that this person already eats enough vegetables so it must be the lack of meat that's causing problems. What the doctor doesn't realise is that this person is likely to have just as poor a diet as the meat-eating fast-food junkie.

    Thank you, that is the jist of the story actually. You summarized my worldview in this paragraph and that is also my biggest grudge with christianity.

    You want to eat animals? Go ahead, by all means. But please, PLEASE, do not present it in such a way that 'animals are made to be eaten', 'nature is made to serve us', etc.
    Please be grateful to the animals that you eat, don't alienate yourself from the process of killing & meat production, it's not just a piece of meat you're eating, it used to be an animal. Respect it

    I have also seen families who eat vast amounts of meat, who do not have the 'meaty' appearance of most meat-eaters, and their children are also as charming as lacto-veg children so perhaps there are no hard and fast rules.
    The only reason people get a "meaty" appearance is lack of exercise. I am 22 and the youngest of my brothers is 14, and we are all over 6ft, and are fit, strong, and lean. We eat a lot of meat - but we do a lot of exercise too.

    I am a meat eater and I do respect animals, I believe. I have never tortured an animal and I have always bought my meat from locals who raise them in proper conditions. Animals are made to be eaten, that is part of the natural cycle, for something to live, something else has to die. Our Germanic ancestors punished torturing and killing animals without reason, but they ate their meat. If animals were not eaten, nature would confront itself with animal overpopulation. Animals, unlike humans, do not control their breeding. We, just like lions and tigers, hunted and ate for millennia.

    How does your worldview reconcile with eating fish and seafood? Do they not suffer when man catches them? I have seen how some of the seafood is prepared, the "products" are steamed alive. Don't tell me what to respect and what not, I don't disrespect anything. What do you suggest the farmers should do with their farm animals? Keep them as pets? eyes: Some farmers are skilled in killing animals quickly. They snap a chicken's neck effectively and it dies soon. I'm studying the agricultural field, I know about farms and how animals are treated there. That's why I buy from them. We humans are animals too, and animals eat other animals. Get over it. Animal cruelty is another thing, me and my friends spread out flyers with the horrible way they turn animals into burgers, this habit was brought here by foreigners, if you ever heard how the Muslims and Jews produce their halal and kosher foods. You had a picture of you eating at McDonalds, even if you only bought a Coke from them, you support a big corporation which is cruel to animals in case you didn't know, so who are you to lecture others about respect?

    Bärin, my post was not even referring to you and I seriously think you should cut down on the irony and assumptions about people you don't know.

    I generally said 'respect the animals' and not view their reason to live as becoming your snack, be grateful to nature, etc.
    I was not referring to you but to all people who claim that 'humans are the chosenites of the Earth', that they can do whatever they like because they're 'smarter' than other beings, like certain capitalists here who claim that climate change and global warming are not real and/or are socialist conspiracies. Get it?

    I eat fish and drink milk and like you I also believe that plants are sentient beings and no less important than animals, but like you say, it's part of the life cycle to eat other species, be it animals or plants or whatever. I just choose to eat less to none red meat for various reasons, I hope that does not piss everybody off, OK?
    P.S. and yes, I once drunk Coke at McDonalds. I'm going to Hell

    To who was it referring to?

    I generally said 'respect the animals' and not view their reason to live as becoming your snack, be grateful to nature, etc.
    I am grateful to nature, but farm animals are grown to become snacks or to provide humans with products like milk, eggs, wool and others, that's why they are there, to think otherwise is fooling yourself. What do you suggest should be done with them? Keep them as pets? Or release them from farms and then what? Have hungry immigrants fight over them? Let them be kileld by cars and pollution? Farmers treat animals with respect, they protect them from cold and dangers, and the animals give them what they need from them.

    I was not referring to you but to all people who claim that 'humans are the chosenites of the Earth', that they can do whatever they like because they're 'smarter' than other beings, like certain capitalists here who claim that climate change and global warming are not real and/or are socialist conspiracies. Get it?
    Who are these people? I haven't seen any posting in this thread.

    I eat fish and drink milk and like you I also believe that plants are sentient beings and no less important than animals, but like you say, it's part of the life cycle to eat other species, be it animals or plants or whatever.

    P.S. and yes, I once drunk Coke at McDonalds. I'm going to Hell
    If it's part of the life cycle to eat other species, then it means they are made for that, if they weren't made for that we wouldn't be eating them, so where's the contradiction? It doesn't miss me off, I just find it hypocritical to lecture others about respecting animals when you shopped at a corporation which disrespects them and when you eat fish.

    I just told you to what I was referring. It was a general rant like many other occasions, I have been reading a Savitri Devi book these days that says exactly the same things and I felt it like a really good occasion to exclaim enthusiastically about how much I agree!

    Who are these people? I haven't seen any posting in this thread.
    So, do they need to post in this thread specifically? They have expressed their opinions a millionth times already in this forum.

    I just find it hypocritical to lecture others about respecting animals when you shopped at a corporation which disrespects them and when you eat fish.
    Again, assumptions. I am not lecturing anyone. Why would I do that? People will always do what they do, I or anyone else cannot change others around us but we can still express our opinion, can we not?

    Besides, I really think these words 'hypocritical', 'traitors', etc, have been overused and overrated. Keep repeating something like that in everyday and every occasion, and it loses its value too.
