wow
well um
im all for that veg stuff gung ho man (though i love eating meat)
but everyone is their own person

but i dissagree
animals are different than humans
we have a higher thinking
e.g. we can build a car
but ya killing animals is wrong
and humans can be stupid
so we have to deal with them in our own way

animals and humans are COMPLETELY different  humans have a free will and animals do not. Animals act purely on instinct, Humans do not, they think for themselves. Humans have a personality, animals do not.

Where did you hear that animals are killed to keep the population down? i have never heard that...

I am not a carnivore.

I am an omnivore.

So are you.

Your choice of topic name is inflammatory.  You live in a glass house, insulated from reality and nature.  One might suggest that you spend a bit of time studying how animals used for meat production are killed, then some time studying how animals die in the wild.  Have you ever seen a pack of carnivores take down their prey?  It's gory, messy, and time consuming with very few clean kills.

Also, yes there are times when animals in the wild are killed in order to control their numbers.  Deer are a prime example, and I'll tell you why.

Years ago we removed most predatory species.  As a result the prey species flourished and overpopulated.  Their food supplies were soon diminished to the point that many animals were dying from starvation and our own crops (that vegetarians have to have to survive) were ravaged as well.

So it was either bring back the predators that are a threat to humans in order to control populations, or do the job ourselves.

You have to look at the big picture.  Everything is cause and effect.

It's the way of life we humans are at the top we will have to kill in order to survive unless you want to eat genetic food?

I thinks its cruel when it comes to places like KFC, thats why i thought i would become a vegitarian. Then i realized i just dont eat anything made by them. I don't eat fastfood, my parents are kinda rich so we eat food from restraunts 27 days out of the month ( iguess 24 for Feb. )
