Oh! I thought I'd answered this but apparantly I sent the reply to another random thread, so sorry about that: I hear that people really DO love animals (despite eating them), and that it's just the way it is (why?) and that they just disagree, and thats IT! ...despite admitting they have no reasons they can think of to disagree...and usually this is said when I haven't been trying to convince anyone (I don't) and I have just answered questions put to me. Odd. Very odd. Maybe it's the guilt!

That people really DO care for animals...despite knowing their living conditions and slaughter methods. That it's just the way it is. That they just disagree with me, and that's the way it is...although they don't really have any reasons why...

There is an excellent pro-veg book on this subject by Matthew Scully. It is called Dominion. It was instrumental in me becoming vegetarian.

Originally (In Genesis) animals were created for companionship. After Adam & Eve sinned, they were killed to cover their nakedness. The first blood was shed because of sin. emoticon

I hear that constantly - especially from my in-laws. And actually the Bible doesn't say that man can eat animals until after the flood - which was some time after creation.

The bible does allow for that-but there is also a verse
that states IF YOU feel it is wrong then it IS wrong
for you.-Linda

"God made animals as meat for humans." I really get tired of that argument for eating meat. I think it's horrible to hear, and really contrary to the Bible.
