    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.
    In theory it should quickly become a lot less costly than meat.

    The welfare of the animals that are used for biopsies remains one of my biggest questions as well in terms of if it's morally viable.

    It's no longer the same product, not sure why that's difficult to understand.
    And chicken isn't at all ambitious given its something with little flavour in the first place, artificial meats have difficulty with replicating flavour well. And what premium does a meaningless moral high ground come with?

    There's an entire episode of A Town Called Eureka dedicated to why not to do this

    But given that's fiction, I probably would look into this but I'd want to watch the whole process...

    You are vegetation?

    I think you mean vegetarian
    Haha oops

    Yes I mean vegetarian 🙊
    Although with all this vegetating I've been doing over the past few weeks I wouldn't be surprised I am vegetation as well.

    Let me know how that works out Personally, i think being a vegetarian is hard enough...

    ironically you're claiming non-human animals don't have interests in one breathe but saying you're against cruelty to them in another.
    Hmm, aren't you the one that values veganism over animal welfare? Is that ironic, never sure.

    Yeah I would for ethical reasons.

    I would be worried about unintended long term side effects though which we wouldn't know about until a few decades down the line.

    These threads are always good for watching meat eaters trip over themselves in trying to defend eating meat lol.

    So basically you're wandering into a topic you know nothing about, ironically you're claiming non-human animals don't have interests in one breathe but saying you're against cruelty to them in another.
    Not being concerned about the "interests" of animals and not wanting them to die cruelly. *Not contradictory.*
    * * You're bringing morals into this. Morals are irrelevant.**

    You'd consider eating this but not a rescued chickens egg?

    I think this is very likely to be a huge step forward in decreasing the suffering animals endure, whether or not it is more or similarly ethically viable than veganism is another question all together.

    Rescue chickens face a huge amount of health issues and often consume their eggs to regain the nutrients. We've been over this before. Not sure why you need that repeating.

    You realise interests doesn't simply refer to a chickens enjoyment of the opera or it's critical analysis of whether Charles I was a good king or not, right?

    Do you think it's *more* ethical than veganism?

    Why would it be more or less ethical?Eating "meat" grown in a test tube seems no more or less moral than eating potato grown in the soil in terms of suffering of living things. Any differences would be infinitesimal.

    I have no idea but I guess it could be worse for the environment. But to me, reducing animal suffering has always been the more appealing aspect of stuff like ethical vegetarianism etc.

    If it was possible to buy a burger grown from a test tube as apposed to a burger grown from a cow that grew up and died in holocaust like conditions, or even a free reign cow that gets butchered in an abattoir, the test tube burger is obviously the better option in reducing animal suffering. I'd be willing to pay more tax so government could help it get off the ground if it was more expensive.

    You have a clear inability to comprehend the most basic points. Go back and try again.
    Still waiting for the reason to buy an inferior product for one would assume more than the superior product.

    This new info seems to show yet another inconsistency in your position, that's all.

    If this is your attempt at trying to look funny or smart, you're achieving neither. Try a little harder cupcake. *

    Because there are other consideration to take into account.

    I may get a lot for personal enjoyment from hitting you round the head with a base ball bat. Why should I not do that? To not do that would deny me enjoyment and would be the inferior option.
