    But wild animals do. But humans don't eat wild animals. They eat animals that are enslaved in battery farms. When they are born they are taken away from their mother. Why not just do the same for humans.
    We cant enslave humans in battery farms because we (the parents) have more means to object against that .

    There is no objective answer to this question. Vegans/vegetarians will insist that they are right in every way possible and meat eaters frankly do not give a flying **** how animals are killed. Simple.

    Because cannibalism will spread prion diseases like Kuru - it's very poorly advised. Why do veggies and vegans still think this is a remotely persuasive argument?

    The slave trade made our lives easier too. Should we bring that back?
    No.

    This thread is acc pointless but if want to eat human go eat yourself and then come back and tell us if it tastes nice. Apparently the smell of burning human flesh is nasty and acc one that if so strong can make you pass out (WW2 concentration camps etc.) let alone putting in your mouth and eating it. It's just wrong both socially and morally ,man.

    OK so as long someone doesn't care, that makes it ok. Got it.

    Heck, let's drop some more nukes on Nagaski, I'm sure some people don't give a flying ****, so that makes it ok. Simple.

    So you're comparing the killing of animals for food to the killing of humans during wartime.

    Yes, real smart logic.

    But you said as long as someone doesn't care, it's an irrelevant question.

    It's literally your logic.

    But what's the difference in the meat of an animal, and that of a human?

    If it were served on a plate, grilled and seasoned, could you tell the difference? Or would your brain say 'YUM! DECAYING CARCASS ON MY PLATE! LET ME GET A SIDE OF FRIES WITH THIS!'

    None, considering by definition humans are literally animals

    No, read properly.

    What I said: There is no objective answer to this question because vegetarians will insist they are right and meat eaters don't give a ****.

    Let me break that sentence for you so you can understand. Meat eaters don't give a **** how animals are killed. Vegetarians think they are right all the time. Both ideologies are subjective and no "right" answer can be drawn from the question.

    So out of that sentence please point where I said it's irrelevant because meat eaters don't care. I am pointing out that there is no right answer, but instead you present a straw man to the argument and imply that I said that it's okay for animals to be killed.

    You are also comparing two completely different things and in the wrong context. You are comparing the killing of humans for food to the bombing of a city during the war.

    Try again.

    Well technically, it is possible to eat human meat there are concerns of whether it is ethically correct - which it certainly isn't.
    Most animals don't eat their own kind, despite having less of a conscience then we have.
