It probably comes off as arrogant when I say it, but as a biologist, I'd think the similarities/differences between humans and animals would make the issue relatively clear to you (which is why I value your opinion on the matter). My position has always been that there is no fundamental difference between humans and the animal kingdom biologically, thus it should be morally acceptable to do what the animal kingdom does.Moonbear said:That's my moral stance, yes.
Conversely, humans are different because of their intelligence and one manifestation of that is that we have invented/discovered morality. But because of that, human morality applies to humans only.
In short, where we are the same (as animals) we eat other animals. Where we are different, we don't eat each other.
