    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.
    The vegetarian community is putting forth an argument (which is correct, but let's ignore that for the moment).

    Meat eaters have no correct defence to this argument and have the cheap cop out of I don't care.

    You're saying because one party doesn't care, there is no right answer by default. That is like going to Court, the Prosecution putting its side across, the Defence saying it doesn't care, and the judge having the case thrown out, because there is no right answer because one party doesn't care.

    There was never an argument to begin with and now I will end it.

    There is no right answer by default because the vegetarian community puts forth an argument that is based on opinion and in this argument you have failed to produce any evidence that makes your argument somewhat credible. Your evidence in this case involves comparing the killing of animals to the bombing of Nagasaki and slavery are taken completely out of context. Those situations in which people were killed in different circumstances to that of killing animals for food. I never made any assumptions at all, that was you presenting a straw man to this argument, of which I could not let slide.

    "No correct defense" is still subjective and not valid evidence. Nevertheless, that does not automatically present a win to the vegetarian community, nor does it make your argument more credible than the meat eaters argument. Your idea of counter argument is to use false comparisons and is not valid evidence, which in itself is a "cheap cop out" by my standard.

    Good day sir.

    Why do we draw the distinction between the meat from a dead, decaying animal, and a dead, decaying human?

    We are carnivores, not cannibals.
    Not carnivores actually, we don't survive solely off meat – we'd get really sick. Most people are omnivores, and if you're vegetarian/vegan you're a herbivore

    Do vegetarians object to say a lion ripping a zebra to pieces? Eating it alive? Because that is the reality of nature. Unless you're gullible enough to believe every word of PETA et al (who have been proven to lie and manipulate multiple times for gain) farms on the whole are not bad places and those that run them genuinely do care for the animals. There are many qualified veterinary surgeons out there working solely in large/farm animal practices. Do you really think they would go through the hassle of applying to vet school, studying for 5 years and graduating just to support animal cruelty? Especially when working in equine, small animal and in some cases research is far more profitable?

    I'm sure there are many problems you would face by eating human eg disease. Also I'm sure even in the animal kningdom, few animals eat their own kind (some do however).

    You also, should not be eating humans. Again, you'll get sick

    Decay is when parasites/bacteria eat away at tissue because it's been dead for so long

    It's not shedding of skin or recycling of old cells
