    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    So, I take it your suggesting, because we reason, we should extract ourselves from the food chain, entirey?
    That does have some merit.
    On the other hand, That means that I would be required to give up sushi and Barbeque.
    Hmmm, reason vs. BBQ?
    I am far too comfortable with my place in the food chain, thank you.

    Future generations will regard you as barbaric, as shall I from this moment on. So there.

    If we are only to eat things that are already dead or have fallen to the ground, how are we to eat potatoes and other vegetables? Things that can fall would mostly be fruits, not an altogether complete diet

    Re: Ethical cuisine

    The experience of chocolate is your body's reaction to vigorous chemical probing, every aspect of which can be generated from synthetic materials. If the feedstock is amoebic you can still consider it grown as opposed to manufactured. Given the degree of processing in your current multicellular diet there won't be much done that you don't already put up with.

    The potato is your distant cousin, you should have more respect than to treat it as a consumable commodity. The potato should have rights appropriate to its nature.

    If you met my family, you wouldn't think it was so distant!
