    At the same time, I think the majority of us in modern societies prefer not to butcher our own meat... not only out of convenience, but because we tend to consider the activity a bit unpleasant. Do you disagree with that notion?

    I find taking a **** to be unpleasant to, but it must be done.

    I don't hunt, and have no desire to. But if I *needed* to, I have no qualms about picking up my dad's rifle and shooting bambi. I just don't *need* to because I pay someone else to do it. I also pay someone else to deliver my mail and clean the sewage tanks. My point being that just because I would *prefer* to pay someone else to perform certain tasks for me, doesn't mean I find those tasks to fit the definition of barbaric or uncivilized.

    As I pointed out in my previous post, I doubt many people who pride themselves on being 'civilized' butcher their own food. Slaughtering and butchering is usually a thing done on the 'other side of town', out of sight.

    It's no coincidence that we often refer to mass murderers as 'butchers' and 'slaughterers,' is it?

    we call them butchers and slaughterers because they butcher and slaughter people

    You couldn't have provided a better example of my point. You take your **** behind closed doors.

    If you did otherwise, people might think you were, well, just a bit uncivilized.

    No. Wrong.

    I did not suggest either of them IS barbaric, I asked which is closer to it, or worse than the other.

    For this situation, they could be the most moral and supported things in our universe but I still asked which is CLOSER.

    I do not demonize eating meat. Sorry .

    I love it man.

    Your poll with those two poll options says otherwise.

    Seeing how humans are omnivores neither is barbaric and neither is worse than the other.


    I do not demonize eating meat
    Your poll question with those two poll options says otherwise.Only a vegan who is trying to defy nature would suggest or come up with a poll that suggest that some how there is something wrong with killing animals for food or eating meat.


    . Sorry .
    I know you are sorry, now apologize.

    Which is why I said sorry and that I made a mistake earlier.

    Ok I understand I made a mistake I should have added another option.

    I have no idea how else to say this, but I swear to you I am not a vegan. I don't even know what a vegan is. I'm dead serious, I have no idea.

    I have always eaten different types of meat and I would never say anything against it.



    I know you are sorry, now apologize.
    Ok I apologize. I admit I made a mistake.

    I was trying to make a philosophical or thoughtful point and possibly incite some good responses. It obviously backfired, I'm sorry, I guess didn't know what kind of people were going to respond.

    Also, I realized I have made a mistake and I apologize, I should have said "if you were forced to make a decision" or something to that extent.

    Its an opinion poll, not a right answer poll.

    Get over it.

    The problem is, the question seems to be nearly sense-free. You might as well have asked, "Which is more barbaric, cooking dinner for someone else to eat, or eating a dinner someone else has cooked?"

    I mean, what the frak is that, a Zen Koan? "What is the sound of one hand clapping... If a man farts in the woods, and there's no one there to hear it, does it still stink?"

    Seriously, was there a point or purpose in this, or where you just screwing around for your own amusement?

    I was trying to make a philosophical or thoughtful point
    Could you elaborate on that?

    Nothing like killing your own feed.
