Animal Consciousness and Meat
If it was (somehow) scientifically demonstrated tomorrow that all, or at least most, animals were conscious, including major human food sources such as cows, chickens, turkeys, and pigs... Would you give up meat?


I must confess, I am torn. On the one hand, ethics. On the other hand, a tender, juicy prime rib cooked rare with just a bit of seasoning and some horseradish on the side... Drooling

As an intermediate choice in this scenario, would you eat non-conscious lab-grown meat, even if it were of inferior quality and tastiness to actual animal meat?

Your thoughts?

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.
