    Hahaha lol. Nice comparison, good science, haha.

    Anyway. They don’t feel pain, the researchers even said that, because they don’t want people like the OP to use their research in this way. They make a sound, which we can’t hear, but it’s nothing like screaming in pain.

    If you factor out facebook vegans and the few loud radicals, you'll find that most are normal sensible people.

    And honestly, meat eaters are for the most part no better.

    This does not make a lot of sense.

    I do not think it is wrong that I eat meat... literally we evolved this way. I don’t think evolution is “wrong”. Furthermore I literally have serious issues with a lot of plants just fucking me over so yeah no... I’m cool. I love lamb and I think they’re cute. I think pigs could make cool pets and I will eat the shit out of of pernil.

    It makes perfect sense, you just choose not to see the logic because doing so would leave you feeling like a hypocrite. 99% of meat eaters would oppose (most violently) a higher intelligence replacing humans at the top of the food chain if it meant human meat could become an industry. You know this to be true, why deny it?

    We would oppose it because of self preservation what kind of non sense logic is that.

    Er, no. We're animals, whom are omnivores, that eat meat (and plants) just like any other carnivore. It's natural, unlike this delusional thought that "it's wrong". The only difference is we got empathy, but don't confuse that for morality... there's nothing wrong with eating meat...

    I would definitely oppose a higher intelligence eating me.

    Off topic: dam this cold roast beef sandwich is fucking delicious.

    Edit Note:
    I left the lettuce and tomato off the sandwich. Only so much guilt I can handle when eating. Still, dammed delicious.

    You can not relate things plants do the same way us humans react to some stimuli in many aspects. In some ways they do, such as they will respond to some stimulants such as cut off a branch and it will do a process of healing the cut. They thrive better under certain circumstances versus others, etc.

    Plants are a part of the life force which is within all living things in the universe. Mankind has dominion over all living things on the earth and we are at the top rein of the food chain. I have no issues with being there.

    You eat meat because of flavor. You're ok with death, simply because it tastes good.

    If someone offered you two different bowls of ice cream/cake/pastry/whatever, one with your favorite flavor and one with a flavor you're just ok with, and said you can choose either, but if you choose your favorite flavor, this puppy will be killed....most people would choose the other flavor. However, when offered a real burger versus an impossible burger, they will choose the real burger knowing full well a cow was slaughtered to provide that.

    That's a really nice non-interesting response that won't affect my enjoyment of meat at all.

    ... or produce.

    It is true, lots of animals eat meat, lots also eat their young.

    Its funny, but when you guys want to justify eating meat, you'll talk about how we have dominion over the animals and are above them but you'll also use the "animals eat animals" excuse when it suits you as well. I don't suppose you see how those are contradictory, no?

    I hate to break it to you, but plants are alive too. This study may be bogus (we'll have to wait until it has actually been peer-reviewed), but "something dying" is a pretty stupid standard to use considering nearly all animal life relies on death to sustain itself.
