Q: Why do vegetarians insist that their diet is so humane? Plants are living things too!
A: Plants do not have a nervous system and therefore do not feel pain. They also are not noted for their emotional responses. If you want to test this for yourself try the following...
The next time you are walking by a tree stick a pin in it and see if it yelps or makes any kind of protest (it doesn't have to be a tree for the puposes of this experiment...any other type of plant would do just as well).
Weak. Plants live, they have a lifespan -- and in fact they may be more spiritual than animals. Ever heard of photosynthesis? That's some far-out shit. Besides, I've never seen humans, dogs, or cows complement a work of art with their background the same way trees and leaves do.
The fact that plants don't have a brain exempts them from pity? Maybe the fact that bovines and canines lack adequate conversational skills and can't dribble a basketball fails to elicit a lack of pity from others. Ever think about that, lumberjacks?
Plants have souls. And they're killers just like us:
Think about that the next time you tuck into a veggie burger; for, unbeknownst to you, the consumer may quickly became the consume.
Better to get them before they get you.
Be ever vigilant, my veggie friends. Your chosen lifestyle is very risky.
Please, educate yourselves. Don't fall victim to the agricultural industry's evil scheme.
(Ripe for the picking, I'm sad to say.)
