Yes. Animals were created for sustenance.

Nah, but we need the protein. It's natural to eat animals tbh and if you think otherwise then fair play to you. But I honestly don't think you're gonna convert many people here

Yes, I agree with you that animals will be dead regardless but it's about supply and demand. The less that's demanded, in theory the less slaughtering taking place and therefore more demand for vegan meat substitutes as a few statistics have shown.

I don't think anyone would pay as much for my tastebuds as they would for a nice steak, so no.

If we didn't eat animals, another animal would eat them. I don't see why it's so wrong for humans (an animal) to eat other animals when that's what animals do.

I've seen the word animal too many times it doesn't seem real anymore.

Probably not, but the protein they provide is worth more than their lives.

Plants and animals have different proteins, some of those proteins are very important but cannot be produced in the body as well as not being present in most plants.

Some animals have evolved eating other animals, including us.

How we treat the animals we eat is a different issue as is the fact that we're generally eating much more meat than our digestive system has evolved to

If we lived with other animals more closely we would be killed and eaten by them such as hippos, alligators, tigers etc. It's natural for animals to eat each other and humans are no different. If we let cows etc live freely they would get killed by other animals and eaten by other animals.

Also I'm not making an argument I'm stating my opinion. I'm not trying to convince anybody to eat meat.

I'm saying it's natural for humans to eat other animals, like how other animals eat animals.

This Wise Fool is actually open to the idea of vegetarianism and veganism. If someone could convince me otherwise, I might reconsider my meat eating ways. For example, meat is important for many areas of our body not just including muscles. Some of these benefits from meat are;

Creatine (Only found in animal food) which is for the brain and for the muscles. Lack of Creatine means a lower performance in test and lower mental capacity.

Vitamin B12 Only found in meat again (though I could be wrong on this one) causes abnormalities in the blood if not taken in at a high enough rate.

A lack of Vitamin D3 appears to lead to an increase of; cancer, heart disease and depression.

Clearly, meat is very, very beneficial and that's just a few examples. It's very hard to live a healthy life without some supplements to replace meat. However, I'm not saying it's impossible.

A better question would be in this wise fools own opinion, Are we worth more than an animal's life? And the answer... Obviously! Now this Wise Fool wants to remind everyone, we're omnivores! Not carnivores or herbivores but omnivores.

I understand if someone doesn't like the idea of killing animals or animals being in pain. This fools agrees that animals being in pointless pain is well... pointless. However, I do think giving an animal purpose for being in our meals is fair. We are more important that animals.

Us eating animals can also help with the food chain. If some animals with no natural predators were no suddenly not longer livestock (they'd probably struggle) their population would sky-rocket until it collapses because of the food. Us eating animals keeps control of this.

Isn't stupid at all. If animals were to be set free, life would be harder for them their populations would boom then collapse and the food supply e.g. grass would be ravaged. The reason why this can't be applied to humans is because we've adapted to control such things.

I was pulling off some tastebuds with my nails last week so the answer to that is nope.
