    wtf even is supermeat and why is it, allegedly, so super?
    What's the very first thing on the post after the title? A youtube link to a video that's 3 minutes 10 seconds long that explains everything.

    The second link is to the faceook page of supermeat.

    Are you an ambassador for all the other animal kingdom species?



    Can you elaborate on this - are you trying to say that there is no possible way whatsoever to kill an animal without making it suffer? If so, what kind of suffering?

    [/b]


    Sure, why not. Wouldn't you? If it exists and provides at least the same value without additional health risks, is there any logical reason not to give it a try at least, except for medical reasons?
    Are you seriously claiming that it's in an animals interests to be killed for our pleasure?

    Someone who studies the notions of what is morally right, wrong and neutral. Pretty easy to find out.

    Here are some starting pages for you:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethics

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_...cal_relativism
    So a moral philosopher = someone who studies the notions of what is morally right, wrong and neutral. Thanks.

    How do they know what is right, wrong and/or neutral? Or are they just studying what other people thought, like history in a sense, without making such judgement themselves?

    What does any of that have to do with meat? Were there any moral philosophers that studied what is right, wrong and neutral about meat? Where did those originate from?

    I don't recall making any such claim. You didn't answer the question again.



    If you're going to make a thread like this, you had better be prepared for any and all questions. From the most basic, which may appear stupid to you, and the complex. Arguments and counter-arguments are vital, it can't go one way, you have to put your own personal feelings aside and be objective. You will always encounter silly questions and thought provoking ones. If you're unable to provide an answer straight away or it upsets you, tough. You raise a topic with some strong opinions, yet you are not willing to defend them when those opinions are questioned in any way? :erm:

    So it's so complex that it can't be put into a line or two?

    That's a very strange but interesting concept.

    However people aren't even willing to pay for free range chicken and free roaming pork, let alone this.

    My answer, yes I would eat super meat. But only if the animal the meat came from lived in suitable conditions. I.e, free range/ outdoors.

    I'm currently a struggling vegetation. I ****ing love meat.

    It's a simple no, based on what has been done so far artificial meat is vastly inferior to the real deal

    It is simply against an animals interests to be killed for meat. No matter how we do it we cause a huge amount of suffering.

    This is one of the most likely to be viable in 5 years.

    Would you eat it, if so why, and if not why?

    Are there any questions you'd need to ask before eating it, what are those questions?

    For me the questions are as follows:
    How much, if at all, do animals suffer from the biopsy?

    What is the ratio of biopsies to servings of meat?

    Are there any other environmental impacts that we should know about?
    For instance, will this negate the requirement for anti-biotics?

    Some mildly graphic content:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUYhAJ6MDrc

    Will it be possible to do this along side GM, or would the animal you take the biopsy from have to be subject to GM instead (beyond that of what we already see through selective breeding).
    You mean like lab grown meat? Yeah, sure, I wouldn't have any problems choosing that over the real stuff. Win win situation as far as I'm concerned.

    Also, God bless Israel for trying to do this

    So basically because something once was inferior you wouldn't try it again, ever?

    Why buy an inferior product when you don't need to?

    It's no longer the same product, not sure why that's difficult to understand.
