Eh, for starters, I don't eat animals or animal products.I have never heard that argument, from an honest person, meant towards anyone but humans
Why would you infer that every animal species be aligned to human behavior other than to be argumentative?
I think you know the argument isn't "to be treated the same", but why eat one and the other, since as humans we have no need to eat either
I don't think I inferred anything about alignment to human behavior - it's Jacob that is doing that with his arguments. Those arguments seem to stem from "speciesism" - which is what vegans often use to try to win converts. This notion, if brought to it's logical end - makes all species "equal". Hence, why Jacob might find moral imperatives to protect prey from predator in the wild. Taken further, if all species are equal, this makes humans equal (no less or greater than) any other species. Then it becomes a numbers game (ie: 1 human < 3 starving lions).
If you cannot grasp these concepts, I'm sorry. Maybe you should stay out of these threads instead of making accusations of motive.
