    If we want to go inot ethics here guys..........is it really ethical to catch a bug and feed it to your plants? I have thought about that from time to time. I wonder if it even ethical to swat a fly........of course we all do it....but is it really ethical. If you think about it, you are still taking a life, a life that God created. What are your guys' thoughts?

    I know someone who is a vegan. He draws the line at "anything with a central nervous system" and he hates the taste of vegatables. Tofu is about all he eats. His logic is that anything with a central nervous system can feel pain and think at least at some primative level.

    Ethics are a man made construct to help use live in the social groupings we have chosen to live in. They are not absolutes and vary from society to society. There are general ethics accepted by the general public and personal ethics of the individual. In our society as it is currenty configured, I would say killing bugs falls under personal ethics and everyone has to sort it out for themselves. Besides, I hate when people tell me what to do, even when they are right.

    I try and kill as little as possible and encourage everyone to do the same.

    poor helpless innocent soybeans..
    deprived of their true nature (that of growing into a soy plant)
    squashed, mashed, roasted and pulpified only to be eaten by a human.
    so sad!
    I think we need to standup for soybean rights.
    soybeans have feelings too!

    the only way we can never harm or kill anopther living thing is if we kill ourselves.

    I love the arguements some militant vegans have against eating animals..
    "Cow milk isnt meant for human consumption! its unnatural"!
    well.. soybeans arent meant for human consumption either!
    carrots arent "meant" for human consumption!
    a soybeans only purpose it to nurture a baby soy plant!
    the ONLY food "meant" for human consumption is human mother's milk..
    so unless a vegan is consuming ONLY that, I dont want to hear about eating animals! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
