    Best connections I had was chilling with cats and dogs, having some insects use me as a speed boost, saving a bee
    Wishing I could form a conversation with a similarly intelligent creature, or could have fun with underwater creatures without getting an amoeba or drowning, or just have chill times with cats and dogs again or ride a horse (they're fricking cool but they'll likely eject me)

    one time when my cat was drinking from his water bowl i noticed a little bit of shit on the end of a blade of grass that was coming out of his arse. he liked to eat grass. so i put my hand in a plastic bag and grabbed the bit of shit and pulled on the grass to pull the rest of it out of his bum hole and he flinched and looked at me like "wtf are you doing?" so i showed him the poop that was in my hand and he smelled it then looked back at me with a look that said "thanx, bro". we just shared unspoken communication and it was the strongest connection that i ever had with another animal.

    I think the issue with vegans is that their opinion of Death itself is that death in and of itself is inherently negative and we as humans should strive to negate all kinds of Death as much as possible. This is a completely fine opinion to have but they fall short when they believe this opinion to be objective truth.
    Because when you accept that death is just a constant and have a completely neutral opinion of Death, every vegan 'argument' just falls apart at the first hurdle.

        That's because a foetus is not its own life so it technically fits into their ideology. A lot of vegans do it for the anti-exploitation too, it's why they don't eat eggs or dairy, and being pro-abortion is actively anti-exploitation.

    Re the image: it's symptomatic of how humans consume living, surrounding resources without caring for them. This is how humans also treat each other. No living being should be warped and tortured. As for not eating pigs, generally, this is because piglets consume their own feces habitually and they are disgusting creatures that aren't really fit for being pets either, if this behaivour bothers you. If you deny this behaivour it also effects their health. "Happier than a pig in shit", to this day they are barely domesticated. They thrive when re-released, they merge with wild boars, and they maintained a sharp intelligence with no real correlation to living many generations in such conditions in captivity.

    Yes, I was raised on a farm, always had a deep connection with animals, always felt like an animal. What I experienced was that animals eat one another, pretty much all of them do, and that is the way of life. Killing an animal is never pleasant, but putting the life that we gave them to good use is the best way to respect them. It's a very complex subject and there was a lot more I could say, but in the end, I think it's right, as much as a tiger eating a pig.

    My dad used to beat me. The dog my parents got me, black lab mutt, once defended me as I ran towards my room to escape my father's belt. The dog cut my father off and stood between me and my father. She was snarling and seemed ready to defend me. She died after escaping the yard and getting hit by a car years later. My cousins helped look for her and returned the injured dog to me so I can say goodbye. It's been over 20 years and I'm still not over that dog. Ever since her, every dog I've had has been female. Maybe it's just being a moron but I swear every dog has had a bit of her spirit in them.

    My dad and I are on great terms now that I'm an adult. Pic related is our current dog. This pup is spoiled rotten.

    Love pigs since my dad had one. It was supposed to be a small one but it was pretty big to me.
    They're cute as kittens when young and pretty funny when old. They like to be pet, especially on the belly and nose. They're big and bulky so you can use your strength a bit when caressing them. It's also surprising how afraid they are of height. Tried to grab him one time and I will never make that mistake again. People have a bad opinion of them because the one we breed to eat are neglected and live like shit. If you raise one like a pet, it will behave like a pet because it's pretty sensible and smart.
    To actually answer the question, my cat is the closest I've ever been to an animal. She is old now and require more and more attention. Almost like she reverted to being a kitten that needs reassuring and caresses all the time. She follows me around and sleeps next to me.

      There is no logical basis to care about suffering simply because it is suffering. Only to care if suffering will result in damage to your own existence, either directly due to resulting from trauma to your body or mind, or indirectly due to trauma hindering the ability of someone to help you, or possibly motivating them to hurt you. Because humans are highly intelligent and social animals, the suffering of each and every human is interconnected. There is no one you can kill without someone else hatching a revenge plot. Animals are different.

      As humans, we have the power of logic and can therefore voluntarily suffer for our own benefit, and recognize that the "suffering" of lower lifeforms is normally irrelevant, unless it is an animal whose purpose is to live alongside humans because the total mass of its body has less nutritional and economic value than the resource investment required to grow and sustain it.

      For example, a cow is created by a farmer to consume agricultural waste such as wheat stalks and other byproducts that are not suited for human consumption. It is only imperative to spare it suffering in order to make the process of transporting and slaughtering it safer and more efficient for the humans involved. In the moments before it is terminated and processed into nutrient dense human-grade food, its suffering is now irrelevant.

      However, this also means that feeding a cow human grade agricultural products is an irrational action. And considering that a well taken care of and athletic human body does not require more than one pound of red meat per weak to remain in peak condition, it is also illogical to create more cows than are required to meet that need.

        On the other end of the animal spectrum, we have another creature: the dog. It is a lean animal who can only consume food that is human grade or can be rendered human grade with minimal labor, and if slaughtered yields less food than it ate that week. The purpose of this animal is to convert the value of its feed into labor and contribution to human social dynamics and maintain their stability. This can be seen in several statistics, such as:
        Dog owners are more likely to marry and have children
        People who live around many dog owners are less likely to be victims of violent crime

        If a dog does not perform labor or contribute to human social dynamics, because it is unusually useless or even dangerous for a "pet", the logical course of action is to slaughter it, and render its body into food for other dogs to decrease the cost of keeping them. This is standard procedure in the developed world.

        The dog is not used as feed for humans to avoid conditioning the humans towards engaging in wasteful activities such as eating an animal who yields less human grade food than they ate that week.

          Irrational

          Is it not rational to want to feel justified in your beliefs? Every human being wants that. In order to feel justified in causing suffering to someone who hasn't caused it to you, you must embrace some sociopathic beliefs, essentially that might makes right. With this in mind, can you prove that there isn't anyone mightier than you? Like, for instance, if a millionaire abducts and rapes you, wouldn't they be morally justified in this, since they can do it and get away with it? And if you think not, doesn't that mean your entire morality is completely egoitistical and self-serving, which in turn means no one should listen to what you have to say?

    I don't put much thought into the suffering of other people halfway across the world (not much point thinking about it anyway). I'm autism though, so forming an attachment with other animals isn't something that requires much effort. I could never kill and eat anything I've even remotely grown attached to, but as for everything else... meat good.

                Still, I personally am not a fan of pork, probably never had it cooked right. I don't consider Bacon Pork. I know it is from a pig and technically pork, but to me Bacon goes under the Bacon category.

                If that doesn't make sense, I have 2 analogies.
                1. I don't consider Candy or other Sweats a "Food". "Food" to me would be meat and potatoes, food with a positive nutritional value.
                2. Trucks and Vans are technically "Cars", but I would never address a Truck or Van as a "Car". A Truck is a Truck. A Van is a Van.

                I probably would too, however my Mom would often tell me to "Get something out of the 'CAR'". So I would check our two cars, (not van). After coming back empty handed she would clarify "Van". I love my Mom, but hated when she did that. A pet-peeve I suppose.

                American pork is extremely lean, as a rule. I think the trend began back in the 90s during (another) moronic health craze.

        the dogs algorithm is confused and afraid when presented with what its photoreceptors perceive to be flashing lights showing giant cats, so it is showing a distress call in a mechanism that evolved to activate its parents nurturing instinct to increase their likelihood of protecting it from a threat or conditioning it to cease having a stress response when presented with harmless stimuli.

          There is no logical basis to care about suffering simply because it is suffering. Only to care if suffering will result in damage to your own existence, either directly due to resulting from trauma to your body or mind, or indirectly due to trauma hindering the ability of someone to help you, or possibly motivating them to hurt you. Because humans are highly intelligent and social animals, the suffering of each and every human is interconnected. There is no one you can kill without someone else hatching a revenge plot. Animals are different.

          As humans, we have the power of logic and can therefore voluntarily suffer for our own benefit, and recognize that the "suffering" of lower lifeforms is normally irrelevant, unless it is an animal whose purpose is to live alongside humans because the total mass of its body has less nutritional and economic value than the resource investment required to grow and sustain it.

          For example, a cow is created by a farmer to consume agricultural waste such as wheat stalks and other byproducts that are not suited for human consumption. It is only imperative to spare it suffering in order to make the process of transporting and slaughtering it safer and more efficient for the humans involved. In the moments before it is terminated and processed into nutrient dense human-grade food, its suffering is now irrelevant.

          However, this also means that feeding a cow human grade agricultural products is an irrational action. And considering that a well taken care of and athletic human body does not require more than one pound of red meat per weak to remain in peak condition, it is also illogical to create more cows than are required to meet that need.

          On the other end of the animal spectrum, we have another creature: the dog. It is a lean animal who can only consume food that is human grade or can be rendered human grade with minimal labor, and if slaughtered yields less food than it ate that week. The purpose of this animal is to convert the value of its feed into labor and contribution to human social dynamics and maintain their stability. This can be seen in several statistics, such as:
          Dog owners are more likely to marry and have children
          People who live around many dog owners are less likely to be victims of violent crime

          If a dog does not perform labor or contribute to human social dynamics, because it is unusually useless or even dangerous for a "pet", the logical course of action is to slaughter it, and render its body into food for other dogs to decrease the cost of keeping them. This is standard procedure in the developed world.

          The dog is not used as feed for humans to avoid conditioning the humans towards engaging in wasteful activities such as eating an animal who yields less human grade food than they ate that week.

          If you are not a pseudo-spiritual wanker in the process of reinventing jainism.

          The other is a self evident statement. God created you and all that you know, and when you die he will do with you what he will. Therefore you will fricking do what he fricking says, child, or you will burn in hell forever.

          Religion justifies its rules by saying there's a universal lawmaker.

          You don't justify your rules at all. You just arbitrarily declare animal predation to be immoral (even though we evolved as animals to be that way), you say all livestock "suffers" even though some fare better than they would in the wild, and you ignore every other way you cause animal "suffering" besides eating meat (i.e. chopping down forests to grow your nasty onions burgers, spraying your crops with poison, burning fuel to ship your nasty onions burger hundreds of miles).

              It's still logically coherent to obey an authority you believe in. Whether or not it is true or scientifically valid isn't the point. Laws themselves could be said to be a fabrication too, especially if they aren't enforced evenly.

              If you ate meat maybe your brain would be more developed and you could understand the point being made, vegtard.

            We also evolved to be attracted to more than a single partner at a time. Does that mean monogamy is bad and we should abandon it? Evolution and morality can contradict one another because there comes a point in time where human society is advanced enough it can afford to sacrifice evolutionary imperatives for greater comfort.

            This isn't an argument for veganism specifically, but seeing others' suffering makes me feel bad unless I feel like they somehow deserve it, which is probably the same for you since you feel the need to consciously attach a greater purpose to the suffering to not feel bad about it. Anyway, it makes me feel bad because it implies I consider myself superior to whoever I am causing suffering, to the point where theirs doesn't matter to me. That means I should be able to somehow prove my superiority. And of course, that means that by my own morality, I don't deserve mercy in the eyes of a theoretical grander being who would consider itself superior to me. You may say it's not pragmatic because there is no grander being, but that thought experiment still highlights how relative and arbitrary our morality is. As a human, I need to feel comfortable and justified in my beliefs, but having this knowledge makes that problematic since it implies my beliefs are only valid because of my arbitrary superiority. If my superiority is somehow taken from me, I will lose all my rights and that's a scary thought.

        Which animals you eat may affect your long term survival. That's it, really. So don't overproduce cows, or feed them our own damn food because it feels good, lest you find yourself short on grain stores. Dog eaters starve today, grain fed beef eaters starve tomorrow.

        I'm not even a vegan and your point is moronic and incoherent. laws are made to reduce harm. what that harm entails is subjective. but using religion to do this is nothing more than a means to get into line those of extremely poor intelligence, with little effort. you can deduce from this how exploitable of a tool religion can be, convincing people to cope and believe the most moronic shit imaginable like animals being unable to suffer or have emotions. this way you can dismiss that you're doing anything wrong to them, because you know the meaning of suffering yourself and so you try to disassociate. we get away with their exploitation since they can't stand for themselves but you somehow cannot admit we're depraved for doing so because it's bothersome to you

        >laws are made to reduce harm
        Laws are made to coordinate human behavior.

        Religion is a form of law.

        And get this: Suffering itself, real or imagined, is not morally important. I do not have empathy for animals. Full stop. I cry for my fellow man but I do not have empathy for animals. They are like objects. And if you would ever put an animal life above one iota of a HUMAN BEINGS health and well being, I would punish you severely.

        >WHY DOES HUMAN SUFFERING MATTER BUT ANIMAL SUFFERING DOESNT
        Because humans are more important than animals, to humans

        Humans can cooperate with us and get revenge on us and mate with us and elevate our wealth and power. Humans can save our lives and humans can help your entire family go from caves a castle. Every single human being is years of irreplaceable value.

        An animal is fairly disposable. Just pick one that is similar and train it the same way. Let's take working dogs for example. Every police dog is nearly identical, you know that? But every police officer is not. The dog is 2 years of training, the human is 3x more mass 10x more consumption and 20 years of training.

        Naturally evolution favors people who instinctively prioritize HUMANS over lesser automatons. It is logically the best choice, and therefore the choice instincts will follow. Vegans are disordered, and every powerful and stable civilization was built by meat eaters.

          So you mean cows might be bad to eat because it takes a lot of grain and resources to raise them?

          Okay. Also red meat I think has a higher risk of contributing to cancer than white meat.

          But anyway that's not my point, my point is just that we should eat animals. Which animals we eat is another question.

          That's not always how instincts work. In fact, instincts are quite irrational a lot of times since they're not adapted to every single specific situation out there and will often do stuff like signal danger in a safe situation based on a superficial similarity.
