Do you believe that we (sentient, conscious beings) have a moral obligation to not cause pain to any living thing? Animals eat each other all the time.. have we evolved past that? (I'd like to note that I believe humans to be herbivores but was just wondering what your opinion was on this matter).@Anonymous
I’d like to believe that we’ve evolved to the point where we’re intelligent enough to realise that we don’t have to eat or harm other sentient, conscious beings in order to get all our nutrients and thrive.
But yeah, I also believe we’re more likely to be naturally herbivorous anyway so the “oh we’re ‘meant’ to eat meat” argument seems pretty ludicrous to me regardless of ethics.
