    Has anyone seen "The man from earth"?

    I'm watching it now and it's really interesting. Plus any trek fans will notice someone from the beginning.

    We haven't culturally appropriated the chicken as a pet.

    Depends who you know tbh. I have several friends who keep chickens in their back gardens and I think they would consider them to be pets rather than potential food.

    Have you seen The Man from Earth?

    If not I recommend it as conceptually very interesting if you look past the annoying x-files music in the background intermittently.

    Well, enough individuals do create general rules, but I take the point. Still, the fact that cats and dogs are more usually seen as pets doesn't mean they can't be eaten, just like the fact that most people use chickens as food doesn't mean they can't be used as pets.

    Sometimes I wonder if I'm talking to a brick wall. The reason, in western society, we don't generally eat dog meat is that we have culturally appropriated the dog as a pet. This doesn't say anything about the potential to eat dog or that chickens cannot be seen as pets by individuals.

    I understand the reasons it isn't generaly seen as culturaly acceptable to eat dogs, I'm simply saying that it isn't really logical. There isn't really any good reason for it imo.

    Not that I have ever tried it or have really ever wanted to.

    Perhaps the fact that we have also used dogs as a way of getting food... i.e. hunting. Why kill a good hunting tool?

    Yes I would imagine that was the case in generations when a dog was a working animal, generally for protection and hunting. You wouldn't wish to kill what could be your only loyal companion and your most common means of security. There's an argument to be had about the cultural shift and when it took place but this pushes us away from why dogs are not considered to be food.
