Title: Eating meat led to smaller stomachs, bigger brains
Scholar revisits her theory explaining evolution of early primates into human
"Even for animals this is becoming a fact. Many companies are beginning to sell 100% vegan products for dogs and cats."
Dogs and cats natural vegans? Really? lmfao XD
-Why do cats prey on birds, mice, rats and frogs if they are natural vegans?
-Why are they equipped with pointy sharp teeth if it's not to pierce through flesh?
-House/domestic cats belong to the feline family, therefore it can be assumed that they have common characteristics, which maybe includes eating habits. Other animals belonging to this family are lions, cheetahs, cougars, tigers, jaguars..etc. As far as I know, they are all almost purely carnivorous predators. Killing and ingesting raw meat is part of their instinctive nature. Those animals NEEDED to kill in order to SURVIVE, stay energized and healthy.
The same arguments more or less apply to domesticated dogs. They belong to the canine family & are thought to descend from WOLVES. I'm wondering whether wolves are peaceful plant eating creatures?... Oo
If those creatures are natural vegans then why did they evolve to become meat eating predators and not stick to a vegan diet?
Another contradictory view. ;)
Elephants and other plant eating animals like the bull are indeed extremely physically powerful. Their diets are plant based and therefore it is logical to deduce that they source their energy from what they ingest. Plant/herbs can be converted to produce great power and energy.
However, we are talking about totally different species here and there are quite a lot of differences between the two.
Humans versus Cows/ elephants.
Humans have been anatomically/ anthropologically classified as big apes. Humans are bipedal. Humans have different brain to body ratios. Humans have unique cognitive abilities in the animal kingdom. Humans have different digestive tracks. Cows have unique digestive systems. Homo sapiens teeth possess the characteristics of omnivorous animals…etc
The list of distinct features goes on, and this is why imo your human to elephant comparison is not so valid.
and another contradictory view. :)
HUMANS AND VEGANISM.
1. In order to stay healthy, the human organism requires certain vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats & corbohydrates.
2. Those may be obtained from what they intake (a particular diet).
If vegetables indeed contain all that is needed to stay healthy, then being a vegan is definitely not a bad idea. HOWEVER, IS THAT SO?
Nevertheless if that was the case, veganism could prove itself to be convenient not only for humans but also to animals we typically murder to feed upon.
1. You mentioned that vegetables are digested more easily that meat. This has been backed by a number of studies indeed, and that is probably true. Excess meat intake may lead to health issues which is also true.
2. Meat eating involves killing/slaughter/torture/suffering/agonizing deaths which are extremely inhumane and unethical.
Who are we to decide upon the fate of these poor creatures? They should be free. Female cows are forced to copulate in order to produce milk. The circumstances in which those defenseless creatures a killed are tragic. Millions are slaughtered every single day for the sake of human consumption yet so many of us see nothing wrong/ immoral in this ego driven evil?
Humanity will not become vegan tomorrow/ in the near future for so many out there enjoy the taste of meat. I personally do, but I significantly lowered my intake!!
For this reason, it is very important that the methods of killing are altered so as to minimize or alleviate suffering. Humans need to develop a sense of empathy towards all living beings. Want it or not, all fates are interconnected.
People should do good for the sake of doing good and not out of fear.
Not because they fear bad Karma.
Not because they fear Hell.
Not because doing good brings you good.
Not out of expectations.
Goodness should be FREE...Let's redefine what being human is, because so far humanity has miserably failed.
Nice work Mendossa, quite a few valid arguments, but your science isn't quite accurate. You still have a lot to learn
Peace out!! ;)
