some animals, perhaps, but not all
you are in denial bigtime baby
either that or just a complete fucking idiot
Im in denial about nothing, I'm perfectly happy with my lifestyle. I think you are the one that is in denial, argue how its cruel to eat another species all you like but dont try and argue they are on the same level as us in regards to brain development (at least the animals we traditionally eat).
Are you trying to say they have advanced communication systems like us? Or that they are able to process their surroundings to an advanced level like us? Is that why cows walk freely up the ramp towards the slaughter house? Or towards the rifle when you are going to shoot them? Is that why sheep are always running off cliffs and killing themselves? Great analysis of the environment there eh...Even primates who are probably some of the most developed animals on earth, disregarding humans, are no where near as developed as us. If they were they would be the ones living as we are in competition with us (and dont even think about arguing the fact that we are destroying the planet, making us the stupid ones).
Im not claiming they have no consciousness because they can clearly recognise people, feel pain and pleasure and even dream (just look at a sleeping dog twitching for that) but its nowhere near as advanced as us. I dont use this as an excuse to eat them, I would eat them anyway as Ive stated and quite frankly dont need an excuse to eat animals, animal products etc. You however seem to think that by disagreeing with you I am anti vegan and should be thought of as the enemy when really we are just having an intelligent discussion....or at least some of us. You on the other hand have said nothing intelligent in 5 pages and are quite frankly an embarrassment to the alternative view point of mine.
So if ive met you, who are you?
