Ragnar Posted February 25, 2004 Report Share Posted February 25, 2004 (edited) [Mod's note: merged with a previous thread. - sN] Hello Among the various claims of vegetarians, the only one that I find viable is one of cruelty. If, as the vegetarians say, there is no 'need' of eating meat today - in that healthy vegetarian alternatives are available - then killing animals would constitute 'unnecessary cruelty'. An argument is made that animals being amoral, the concept of rights does not apply to them. Thats true. But the point is about 'unnecessarily' infliciting pain and suffering on these creatures. Is that not bad ? I wonder if any of you have read this:http://www.uta.edu/philosophy/faculty/burg...ckson/engel.pdf Its called "Immorality of eating meat". How would you answer the author ? The document is approx. 3Mb, 36 pages (best read if printed) ---- Regards & Thanks Edited March 8, 2014 by softwareNerd Merged Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
