I became vegitarian about 12 or so years ago, mainly as a protest against the abuses suffered at the hands of man by food animals, factory farming etc. and because most meat in general is so full of growth hormones, antibiotics, parasite medicine etc. I could never intentionally kill an animal. I somewhat follow the path of Buddhism among others and in doing so believe that ALL life is sacred and that I am no more important than any other form of life on this earth and who am I to take the life of something the creator has given life to.
Yes. Hunting is a natural thing and in fact, I would rather make my own kill and eat it rather than go to McDonald's and buy a cheeseburger or whatever.
Life, death and killing go hand in hand. You can't have one without the other.
The killing and death is just a means of transferring energy into life anyways.
Animals have souls and feelings yes but everything must eventually die.
After they're dead they give back energy and life to me and to nature so I don't consider it wrong. But I don't approve of raising and butchering animals, that is just plain wrong.
This is just my opinion. If you disagree then don't mind it.
yah i know what you mean. I have been a vegetarian all my life (never eaten meat!) and all of my immediate family members are vegetarians also due to religion. A lot of ppl tell me that they couldnt fathom being a vegan/veggie but for me its the opposite. I am proud to say that i have never let rotten meat or flesh enter my body. Plusss vegetarians have longer life expectancies (about a 5-7 year difference) go veggie!
Well, where i am originally from..we usually kill our own meat, especially chickens and goats.lol, it was fun, i thought it was. I still eat meat, love chicken especially. If someone can tell me the difference between plants and animals, i would be glad, because last time i checked, they were all living things.
