It is the Question of Questions are we (vegan/vegetarian) causing harm and inflecting pain on plants whilst saying that vegan / vegetarian is a peaceful life style ?
1.How do we define eating an apple to as opposed to a cow ?
For most converted meat-eater, they have come to the understanding that animals feel pain, and need not eat meat to survive. Some vegetarians are a spiritually advanced in believing that meat-eating is wrong, very common among the Hindu religion. Personally my understandings is fond of the quote “food is grown and not born”.
2.Why is an apple called an apple and a cow called beef ?
I think its more simpler to change the name of dead animals and call it something else as it becomes less of a physiological impact on us as humans when eating, example “hey let’s go eat a cow for supper” , or “hey let’s have steak for supper” which sound easy to hear ? further we have defined animals in terms of size and importance, for instances the chicken is still called a chicken after is has been developed for food, did you know that chickens are now regarded as nothing more that just food, or egg production and that’s it.
3.Can edible Flora feel pain ?
I know that you need a nervous system to feel, which is absent in plant life, although I do believe that Plants have life hence the growing, and also do believe that everything serves a purpose in the world, hence the purpose of an apple ?
if not food then what ?. If I cut of an apple from the tree will the tree cry in sadness that I have stolen its child ?
if I take a calf from its mother will the mother cry for her child ? will the calf cry for its mother ?
4.Can the Fauna feel pain ?
because of the nervous system in animals we can derive that animals do in-fact feel pain, apart from experiencing loss, suffering and some even fall in to depression. If you were meant to be free, your inner self craves the green grass on your feet, you long for the shine of the sun or the mud from the sand and rain, but you have been confined to concrete floors in an over crowed jail cell waiting for the call, will you not be depressed ? I for sure would be
5.Of which the flora or fauna can we see the pain or identify with the actions caused out of believing that animals are in fact here on earth to satisfy our Human taste ?
If we as humans are created to eat meat then, we should be able to run after a chicken, sheep or a cow pounce on the animal and start ripping of the animals skin and enjoy the catch as food. It should come natural to you and not enhanced.
Animals Kill For Need, Humans Kill For Greed.
