I apologize for not being more concise on what we were arguing over. We will be arguing over the morality of eating animal products.
Thank you, Pro, for accepting my challenge.
Animal products, including milk, eggs, cheese, meat, and seafood, are not necessary to sustain a healthy body. Therefore, a living creature that has feelings and can feel pain and can suffer must endure a life of torture then be slaughtered for the sake of taste, not health.
Humans have become arrogant because we are more advanced than any other species on planet Earth. This causes humans to believe other creatures, through evolutionary processes (if atheist) or Creation (if Christain), have been placed here so humans may use them as they please.
So, I ask you, should an animal endure pain and die so that humans may take part in enjoying them only for pleasure, not survival?
You are welcome.
Actually, studies have proved that a life with animal products is a healthier life. For example, milk gives you more calcium then anything that's vegetarian. Humans have lived longer with products such as what you stated. Most animals are put to peace before they are butchered, and not tortured.
I understand your point, but I'd like to point out the food chain. Humans were made to eat animals, animals were meant to eat other animals, other animals to bugs, and so on. Some people have become arrogant and over-hunting animals, but most federal government is trying to put a stop to it.
As I stated above, most local farms don't torture their animals before they butcher them, that is why my family only buys local agriculture and meat. Although I have heard of companies who torture their animals before they butcher them, which is animal cruelty, which brings us to another topic.
Although this arguement is not over the health benefits (or lack thereof) of adopting a vegan diet, I would like to address that that it is much more healthy to eat on a plant-based diet. It has been proven many times that you are much more likely to have cancer, diabetes, high cholestrol, and heart disease when eating animal products.
The food chain is not how you state it is. If humans can easily survive without the use of animal products, unlike other carnivores that could not live without them, then obviously it is not part of our natural food chain.
Statistically, the majority of farms in the U.S. are industrial farms. And the phrase "Family Farm" has tricked people into believing that the animals are killed humanly when this is almost never true. Most are still packed together and never see the sun. Plus, an animal still must die in order for you to enjoy the taste of your meal.
Not only are animals not dying when you adopt a plant-based diet, but it is also enviromentally friendly. Factory farms are one of the leading polluters.
