    You don't think we should eat meat, fair enough, but don't lie and pretend we actually can't. Oh, and comparing eating to rape is pretty disrespectful to survivors of rape.
    I don;t find eating in general comparable to rape. I am a survivor of rape and I don't find it disrespectful. I am not going to stop stating my beliefs because they offend people. People dont stop stating their beliefs even when it offends me.

    He didn't insult you though did he, pointed out a spelling mistake in your username. Either way, I would offer you a nice big juicy burger to calm down, but I'm sure you'd prefer a limp lettuce leaf :teehee:
    Moonstruck did. And it got 8 reps for doing it. A fine example a hypocrisy.

    Also you're not funny. Go get some new material ****.

    She said that its a CHOICE like that justifies it just because someone can choose to do it. I was just pointing out that anyone can Chose to do anything. It is someones CHOICE to do a lot of things that are considered immoral.

    I would also make an argument that we aren't MEANT to eat ACKEE
    Why are you referring to yourself in third person? You may have been pointing that out but that doesn't matter as you come across as a person who hates people who eat meat.

    Start a thread about Ackee then to prove your point.

    How am I referring to myself as third person? And so what if I was?


    I don't hear everyone saying we were MEANT to eat Ackee so there is no point

    If humans are meant to eat potatoes then why don't we eat raw potatoes?
    Following a similar line of thought, mushrooms? Essentially indigestible raw having next to zero nutritional value. Also, some have been known to be carcinogenic and toxic. Cooking removes the toxins in mushrooms.

    But we do eat Ackee, in the parting the world it's grown anyway, and Jamicians would say we are meant to eat it.

    People say we are meant to eat vegetables, so why aren't you complaining about us cooking them?

    Humans can eat raw meat as other people have pointed out on this thread.Other animals can get ill from eating raw meat but they eat it fresh wheras we store it then eat it so its more dangerous for us.Humans probably cook meat because it provides us with an evolotionary advantage over those early humans that didnt cook meat since we're less likely to die of disease.Hence our revulsion when faced with dead carcasses which are likely crawling with deadly bacteria.So there is an evolotionary reason for why we'd prefer cooked meat.If you're going to link websites please dont link to websites as obviously biased as PETA.The other day they claimed that pokemon go was animal cruelty.There are good arguments to advocate vegetarianism but dont claim that humans are herbivores because if you do you lose all credibility.
    It is a fact that humans are herbivores

    Why does it have to be cooked?

    If humans are meant to eat meat- then why can they survive without eating meat and still be healthy?

    Just because you can do something it doesn't mean you are meant to do it. Just because you were born into a society were something is the norm- it doesn't mean it was meant to be that way. Just because something has been happening for thousands of years it doesn't mean it has to continue happening. All these arguments that are made for meat is weak.
    Just because people have a brain doesn't mean they know what to do with it.

    How can you say we are herbivores, when vast swathes of us eat meat? There is no believing involved. Humans are quite clearly able to eat meat, we have the digestive system which can process it. We are not herbivores.

    Says who? You? Perhaps you should inform the scientific community.They seem to be labouring under the delusion that humans are omnivores.No doubt you and your expert knowledge could clear things up for them.I mean its not like hundreds of scientists have devoted their lives to studying animals so we can understand the natural world better.If humans were herbivores we wouldnt be able to digest meat, we wouldnt even feel the desire to eat meat.The fact that we do feel such desires is a testement to the fact we're not meant to eat plants only.

    Humans could also digest human meat quite well- look up cannibalism. So going by your logic that means humans are MEANT to eat other humans because we can digest another human quite well.


    Not great logic you're using if you ask me as you are just opening a whole can of worms.
