OK, this is pretty provocative, but I'll go ahead and say it.

We noticed a long time ago that while Liz isn't vegetarian, she won't eat mammals of any kind. IOW, she dsn't eat "red meat", like beef, pork, lamb, etc., only fish and poultry.

Then I started thinking about the fact that "Liz dsn't eat mammals" was such a different way of expressing the idea versus saying "Liz dsn't eat red meat".

Is it possible that the farther a creature is "beneath us" in a biological sense, we have that much less empathy for them?

Is this the true basis of being vegan? Is it the fact that plants aren't even considered "creatures", and thus it's more ethical to end their life to save ours?

Do you think that when/if we figure out that plants have "feelings", the ethical thing would be to become fruitarians? Yikes! :shock:
