    Interesting topic. Although I do not find anything wrong with eating meat, I cannot think of a way to persuade those that think eating meat is unethical.

    Looking at it in a scientific prospective, we as a species have evolved to be omnivores. If we did not form civilizations and enhance agricultural production, there would be nothing unethical about it. I think that the only reason those that think it is unethical is because the human race could survive without the consumption of meat. Therefore, I do not really see a real reason for either side. It comes down to the fact that we evolved to eat meat, and then science advanced enough that it is no longer needed.

    Interesting dilemma. But I think it has a mild logical fallacy.

    As one of the posters above pointed out, he can't find anything unethical about eating (in my case at least ethically harvested) meat. Isn't it in the interest of a disagreeing party to prove that it is indeed unethical to eat meat, rather than someone having to prove they're not doing something unethical?
    What they're saying is "I accuse you of being unethical. Prove your ethicality."
    The only answer to that is "Prove I am unethical first."

    Ya know?

    Food has no ethics outside of cannibalism, in my parentally instilled moral code. Food is fuel, and tasty fuel gets eaten more often. :)

    Why? Because I can't stand the high-pitched screams of the vegetables as they're ripped from the ground and cut up and cooked.

    Because my incisors and canine teeth are there for that specific purpose. If humans were just meant to eat vegetables we would have a mouth full of molars.

    It's what our bodies are wired for.

    Why wouldn't we eat meat?

    There's nothing unethical about it

    Eating vegetables is unethical. Poor things haven't got a chance to run and hide like Bambi does.

    Why else would animals be made of meat?

    Aren't all the judges anti-carnivorous?

    That sounds like a really fair and balanced contest. Ya think maybe they're really looking for the worst, not the best? I choose not to play.

    Because the Almighty did not create me at the top of HIS food chain, to eat salads. [​IMG]

    Best answer yet! +10!

    It's all very clear though. God gave us domain over the animals. I eat meat cause the last thing I want is a town infested with rats and cows like the streets over in India.

    If the good Lord had intended for us to graze on greenery....he would have given us 4 stomachs like cattle. Our digestive system is that of a carnivore.

    The premise of the question is flawed, it presumes eating meat is an ethical and moral dilemma....it is not. There are those in our society that would like to make it that way so as to create guilt and victims.

    Just think of all the jobs that would be lost, I mean after all, If we stopped eating meat, all those people at "Weber and Kingsford" would be out of work.

    Strange question. Eating meat isn't ethical or unethical. Its just another source of protein and it tastes good.

    Just for fun, how about this? Meat is tasty. Tasty foods make people happy. Happy people are more prosocial. Prosocial behavior is good for society. Therefore, NOT eating meat is, overall, bad for society and things that are destructive to society are unethical.
