 but i have one thing to say plants are living beings too yet we eat them. they feel the pain too and the worse their agony can't be heard but that doesn't mean we stop eating. the point is this is the life's cycle which various biologists call food we

 Worldwide, 60 to 70 percent of the plants are fed to 60 billion land animals. So if humans stopped eating flesh, then fewer plants would be harvested. 1 meat meal = 10 veg meals.

 so if human beings stopped eating flesh then there will more need of plants to suffice the need of the growing population of animals which wouldn't be checked if we feed on them

 i get your point even i m against over exploiting of animals but look at the scietific aspect of it as i menyioned earlier there has to be a balance maintained in the food web so neither over eat them nor stop eating them comppletely

 Dear Erif, it's not so. You are misinformed, as I was not so many years ago. The enormous number of cows and other "animals for food" is caused by Humans. We breed then forcefully and then we rape the offsprings few days after birth, so the female could b

 hi clo i saw the link n i got ur point. u said in animal farms they are artificially inseminated which is as good as raping them but what about hybridisation in plants
31. erif wrote:
 isnn't that raping them too?? did u know that capsicum actully is a hybrid of tomato and chilli. aren't we being cruel to them. aren't we disturbing their cycle as well. tel me one thing clo, if some one's deaf and dumb sister is raped should the victim b

 should the victim be given lesser punishment just because she cannot express her grief...
33. erif wrote:
 my point is why raise voices only on animal exploitation when poor plants are being terrorized too. we can ve them both as our body is designed to feed on them BUT... in a controlled manner
34. erif wrote:
 we should raise voices against over exploitation and on artificial breeding methods
35. erif wrote:
 but not on stopping to feeding on them as it won't just disturb the food web but disturb the ecological balance too
36. erif wrote:
 and btw where one animal can feed ten people you need 100 plants to feed the same ten people so what do u suggest???

 Fabulous pic!! exceptionally done Clo!!

 Amazing picture Clo, as always! :) Heavy debate you & Erif have going on here..I wont get involved but will say I don't eat meat or fish & feel so much happier in my body & soul for it. :)

 sweet little lamb!
40. clorophilla wrote:
 Erif, Just one thing more, then I suggest to close the debate here, btw we could continue in the forum. but you have to calculate correctly: if 100 plants feed 10 people directly, it needs 1000 plants to feed the same 10 people by the flesh of one animal
41. clorophilla wrote:
 ...one animal that eat those plants. THIS are the right numbers.

 Wonderful artwork! Love him. I hate killing anything to eat. But, due to sin, there has to be death to support life. That's reflective of Jesus on the cross for us.

 Fantastic work done !!

 Interesting 'debate'. enf, the next time you go shopping, take a good look at the fruit and veg. Most of those greens and roots had been given time to mature to a degree, some even harvested at the flowering stage, and the rest are the fruit of mature pla

 (sorry!) plants. Animals, in comparison, live for a fraction of their natural lifespan before being slaughtered.

 KJLavigne, I'm not a practising Christian either but I would consider Jesus to have been a humble, wise, courageous and above all else, a compassionate person.

 I certainly would not belittle his suffering as justification for eating meat.
58. clorophilla wrote:
 erif, I appreciate your good intention writing this. I'm not offended. On the other side, animals do. I think that, for them, this "debate" is not a matter of opinion, but a matter of life and death.

 You put that so much better than mre! :) btw I love how the purple shading suggests that your lamb is standing in brilliant sunlight...

 Superb lamb, Clo! I've raised, cuddled, loved and had to lose them. There are worse losses, but that doesn't --shouldn't --diminish the heart-pangs. Altruism even when you know you won't win is a worthy part of life.

 I don't think I've ever tasted lamb. If I have it was only a small bite and I prefer the real animal to the food. GREAT picture!!
