“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think.
Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there
was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than
when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.”

Yeah, me too! And I'd pet it and say "oink!".

Honestly, I would. ._.

:lol:

And btw, Kalypso, that thing about the "Nutztiere", that's just awful! I had no idea that a word like that even existed. o_o

Thank you! That actually really means alot to me, if you only knew... I've always been told I'm stupid, for doing what I feel is the best.
But I've learned that knowledge helps you defeat the simple minded ones, and it is the simple minded ones who pick on people.
So hearing something like this from someone you look up to, it really cheers me up! :lol:

I'm a vegetarian (for a little over a year now). I think I eat quite healthy...I eat a lot of those health food meals (which are very high in protein) so hopefully anyway. I don't eat as many vegetables as I should, but I love fruit :)

Ok, we're discussing 'bout the feelings of animals and the pain they can suffer when they're hunted (of course they do. I must say that I love animals.).

Just one question to all of you. Please, DO NOT WANT to make a battleground. It's just a (philosophical) retorical question. :rolleyes:

If animals have pain, feelings and the same things we have. ¿Why not plants, too?

I mean, they are living beings, too. They grow up, they reproduce thanx to their seeds, and finally they die.

If they do the same as animals and humans, ¿why they wouldn't be able to feel things, like pain?.

If they do,.. so then we couln'd eat them 'coz they suffer too when they're pulled up or cut.

Some people talk to their flowers and they play the radio for them.

I don't know if I have explained myself...

Anyway... It's just a mental delirium. :rolleyes:

Have just woken up and haven't had breakfast yet... My mind is like a messy thing :rolleyes:

you have to plant a seed to get a plant.. and wait until the plant gives fruit or dries or dies to get new seeds and have more plants.. you can't compare a plant to an animal and everyone knows that, even if they are alive in a way too.
None plants animals, animals are able to reproduce themselves as well as human beings, so breeding them for later slaughter is way different than eating plants and growing them for consumption. But if you think it's the same.. then animal farming should be to you as bizarre as the idea of human farming or manslaughter.. because if plants are living beings, so are animals, and animals are way closer to us earthlings.

EDIT: besides, plants and vegetables don't feel pain. they have a different nervous system than the rest of alive beings

The person who invented this word must have been someone without a heart! But it shows clearly how animals are treaten in our "great" society...like things. Like property. There is a wise saying from Mahatma Gandhi:

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treaten."

Our nation doesn't seem to have made a huge progress yet. :rolleyes:

I think you're wrong darlin', what 'bout pollen? It's a kind of seeds.

Or some ones just fall on the ground.

It's not necessary our action in their process of recreation.

Petonets wapeta!! 8-)

yeah i know pollen flies in the air and that it's like the male figure of those plants that have seeds.. BUT (and that was my point) when you grow plants (like farming them as it were) or vegetables in this case, you do HAVE TO plant them, they just don't reproduce themselves even if they have polen or not..
because most of the times pollen never gets to its final destination and it ends up on the floor and merges with the soil.. and then it's just a useless grain of powder, that doesn't make a plant.

but that's going off topic now..
