    The issue of using petroleum and other chemicals to farm is certainly a concern but separate from the issue of the using other animals for food. The importance of finding alternative sources of energy and reducing our overall population come into play here, but don't think for a second that I don't consider all of it to be necessary for our future. I will say that if other animals are merely around to help benefit a plant-based agriculture instead of being exploited for their flesh and secretions that this would be an acceptable outcome for many and is certainly better than nothing.
    Actually, the two are not entirely separate issues, at least, not on a farm. Intellectually, you can be reductionist about it and think about the two separately, but to the farmer it's the sum total of all the costs and all the benefits of something that determines if it is a sustainable practice. The farmer can't afford to look at only the money he's going to take in selling his birds for meat. If the birds can also reduce his need to purchase insecticides (because free-ranging the birds will reduce the insect population) for his veggie crops then the farmer has to take that into account or else he'll price the meat too high and drive down sales

    I see, so it's NOT about the fact that they aren't human? Make up your mind Jack.

    No, your lack of logic was put on display and you thought you'd try to throw a smoke screen by injecting race into the discussion. Way to cheapen the civil rights movement. I'm sure that all of those who have struggled for and died for equal rights for a couple hundred years won't mind.
    LOL! You're so "suspicious". Quit trying to get into my head, it only makes you look foolish. If your reasoning for disregarding cows and other animals is because they aren't human then I fail to see how it's any better than a racist's opinion who disregards other humans simply because they have the wrong skin color. Get it? Species is irrelevant. You're basically writing them off due to their appearance and genetics.

    No, your logic fails and so I drew a comparison which indicates how faulty it is.
    Rabbits were put here to be eaten, which is why they reproduce so fast.

    If nobody ate rabbits, the world would be overrun with rabbits and everybody would die.

    Please don't be blind.

    Meat provides protein, which helps brain function. If you are OK being weak and a little dull, that is fine, not everybody is.

    I will, in a heartbeat. Rabbit gumbo is one of the finest meals I've ever had.

    Never had rabbit, and it ain't on the list.

    We should name the cow out of respect.
